I am Lorenzo, I live and work in Stockholm, Sweden. I design custom playing cards and Stockholm17 is the name I use for projects.

There is no specific theme in this deck, it´s quite eclectic and I let my fantasy run when I illustrated the courts.

The diamonds have clearly an Egyptian resemblance, but overall they belong to a parallel world.

There is a thing that connects all the court cards: the text circling the background is a part of the Aeneid, a Latin epic poem written by Virgil between 29 and 19 BC, that tells the legendary story of Aeneas, a Trojan who traveled to Italy, where he became the ancestor of the Romans.
