Flesh & Bones is a completely custom, hand illustrated deck of playing cards, designed in London by Dual Originals.

Flesh & Bones

Each card has been rigorously designed to create a unique deck that combines digital precision with illustrative flair. As this is our debut deck of cards, we went the extra mile to create something that is really special.

The court cards feature detailed, hand-drawn illustrations based on mythical creatures like the Kraken and a Nymph, and ancient gods, such as Triton and Medusa.

The Tuckbox

We have always had a passion for the weird and wonderful and wanted to express our take on it through this deck.

Contrastingly, the tuck box and back designs are precise and minimal, consisting of illusional line patterns and geometric shapes. The tuck box will be embossed to amplify the tactile experience of cards and create an exceptionally high quality product.

Thank you so much for taking the time to check out our project! We really appreciate every pledge and sincerely hope that all of you will love this deck!

    WOW, Artofplay, pledged for the $2500 goal so that they could put their own advertising in the deck and make sure the project is successful. Seems like the $2500 pledge was put in their specifically for them, as nobody else was, or would be, interested in it. VERY FISHY and UNETHICAL!

  2. John G

    This deck is such a great work of art! But I missed the deadline :( will there by a way for me to buy the deck?

  3. Rob

    So disappointed I missed this! Will the shirts be available at a later date for purchase?

    Thanks and congrats on the funding you’re work is beautiful.

    Cheers
    - Rob

    Is there any way to get an additional deck?

    I only want 2, but there is no pledge level for it.

    • Vic

      I believe all you had to do was increase your pledge. Too bad these guys don’t bother to respond to comments. They don’t seem to care about anything.

  5. Nate

    I’m confused a bit. It looks like the past 3 decks have already been printed. Is this going to be the standard process or unique to get the site rolling? Also, will the decided print vendors and paper stock be known in the future?

    Thx!

    • Vic

      And to top it off the Bucks themselves are backing projects on their own site to make sure they are successful, which is unethical and shouldn’t be supported. Would never fly on Kickstarter which is what i’m going to be sticking to for supporting real projects!

      Also customer service stinks and you have no way of controlling your pledges nor can you cancel it. Last deck i’m getting on this site until they make it more user friendly and stop funding their own decks!

    I love this deck and can’t wait to see it in person. The Kraken is definitely my favorite card slash T-Shirt! Well done!
