Kickstarter: The Retro Deck – Playing Cards by Pocono Modern

New playing cards come from successful creators of Woodland Deck on Kickstarter. Decks were designed by Joe Morelli and Pocono Modern. Two editions of one general theme are planned. They inspired by the simplicity and elegance of timeless Mid-Century Modern design.

Mid-Century Modern is an architectural, interior, product and graphic design that generally describes mid-20th century developments in modern American design, architecture and urban development from roughly 1933 to 1965. The term started to be used as the name of the style in mid-1950s. This style is now recognized by scholars and museums worldwide as a significant design movement.

About their relaunch of the project (02/08/2015):

“Initially we failed to raise enough money to produce The Retro Deck as we dreamed it: a multi-deck set of complimentary playing cards… Rather than letting that stop us, we were able to scrape together enough money to produce one of the two decks we campaigned for… To date we have sold enough of them to cover our debt but not enough to produce the second deck. If we can raise enough to produce this second deck in white we will be able to realize the full set as originally intended… And to keep it fun we’ve added a few extra perks to the deck, such as foil box seals and custom drink cards.” ~ Pocono Modern Playing Cards

White deck is also planned to be printed by the United States Playing Card Company (USPCC). Poker size.
