Originally funded on Kickstarter last year, the Lepidopterist by Kowaleski & Co. is a strangely beautiful deck of playing cards with inspiration coming from the Sunset Moth, a beautiful and brightly colored day-flying moth, found all throughout Madagascar.
In collaboration with Art of Play, a brand new limited edition Lepidopterist deck in Pink was released last week. The highly collectible deck combines the natural beauty of nature with architectural details inspired by the elegant Art Nouveau era of the early 1900s.
The elegance and beauty of “The Lepidopterist” begin with the tuck box. Every detail was carefully crafted and strategically placed. The tuck box features colored and gold foil accents, letter-pressed and embossed.
Inside, the deck is semi-custom with special attention was given to the beautiful ace and joker cards. All were meticulously hand-illustrated to, not only go with the theme but elevate the deck as well. The face cards are standard but come with rearranged pips and recolored courts to match the color palette of the deck.
