New playing card projects are popping up on Kickstarter regularly. RJ Tomlinson (Titanic Playing Cards, Gettysburg Civil Unrest Playing Cards, etc.) presents Pompeii Playing Cards. His custom poker playing cards are inspired by the novel, The Last Days of Pompeii, written by Edward Bulwer-Lytton in 1834. Mr. Bulwer-Lytton was an English novelist, poet, playwright, and politician. He devoted his novel to the tragedy of the city of Pompeii, the ancient Roman town-city near modern Naples, Italy. It was destroyed and buried under ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.
See the playing card project on the “Kickstarter Projects” page.
