“Kickstarter: Venexiana Dark Playing Cards by Half Moon Playing Cards” is updated #2.
Tag Archives: Venice
The Signature deck will be released in two parts. The first one (80 decks) on Saturday Oct 25th at 5:00 p.m. EDT and the second one (40 decks) 3 days before the end of the project, at a different time in order to accommodate backers from Asia and Australia.
A whole year after the first Venexiana deck, the story continues with a travel to the dark heart of 18th century Venice. Venexiana Dark features a series of obscure and marginal characters who complete the picture of this haunting city. Thieves, assassins, courtesans, wicked noblemen and masters of deception are all on board in this imaginary gondola.
The decks are planned to be printed by the Expert Playing Card Company (EPCC).

“Venexiana” – this is how the word “Veneziana” is written in the area of Veneto, in northern Italy. It’s familiar but at the same time strange, exactly as Venice itself. Venice is not just a beautiful city. It’s an impossible invention of time.
Inspired by designer’s love for this aged beauty, “Venexiana” recalls the elegance, playfulness and mystery of early 18th century Venice. It’s a completely custom deck, and every element, from pips to courts is entirely designed by Lotrek (the designer and owner of Half Moon Playing Cards). It is planned to be printed by USPCC.
