Arthur and Merlin playing cards (a project) designed by !Lenxen1984.
Merlin is a legendary figure best known as the wizard featured in the Arthurian legend. The standard depiction of the character first appears in Geoffrey of Monmouth’s Historia Regum Britanniae, written c. 1136, and is based on an amalgamation of previous historical and legendary figures.
King Arthur is a legendary British leader of the late 5th and early 6th centuries, who, according to medieval histories and romances, led the defence of Britain against Saxon invaders in the early 6th century. The details of Arthur’s story are mainly composed of folklore and literary invention, and his historical existence is debated and disputed by modern historians.

The unifying theme is the Helvetica font used as the base of each design along with other shapes, fonts, or other design elements. Faces of cards designed by Junli Kato. Box and back-side of the cards designed by Peter Gutierrez. Box and cards all hand-crafted and assembled.
“Your supply of cards is getting low, and now is your time to replenish your supply. Free Sultan Treasury and Red LTD decks will make it worth your while. 12 decks gets you a Treasury; 18 gets you a Treasury and a Sultan. Sale ends at midnight Sunday.” ~ Ellusionist
The distinguishing feature of the English standard playing card is that the Jacks are lansquenets – mighty warriors or foot soldiers. With such a rich and illustrious subject matter, nothing needed to be added that wasn’t already there. All that was needed was to give each of the characters dimension and expression. Nothing was done to disturb the basic foundation of the deck. Rather, conscious decisions were made to preserve and extend the tradition. Each and every card in the WhiteKnuckle Deck is a unique hand rendering in keeping with the style. Where ambiguity gave way to artistic license, reference was made to its ancestor, the French Rouen design.
The deck: 52 playing cards + 2 Jokers + Blank card + Information card. Poker size.
There were three editions of this deck. The decks edition and year of release can be identified on the bottom of the box (e.g. the first edition deck was brought out in 2010 so the numbers would be 1-10).
The First Edition (these were published in Sydney in March, 2010).
Several 1st edition rare decks are still available on Brett’s site.
