Deck of the Extraordinary Voyages by Bent Castle Workshops
The new deck employs lavish Steampunk styling, but to a very specific purpose: our homage to Jules Verne.
It’s titled, Deck of the Extraordinary Voyages, and draws from a collection of works by Jules Verne known as Les Voyages Extraordinaires.
Within the deck, each suit draws upon his worlds for its theme and imagery. Spades rule the ground and below, Hearts the skies, Diamonds the stars, and Clubs the oceans.
