Gemini decks are a series of completely custom illustrated poker size playing cards designed by Lorenzo of Stockholm17, Sweden. The deck was printed by Expert Playing Card Co. on casino grade paper stock with their Classic Finish coating.

This series has 2 Standard Editions and 1 Limited Edition:

  • Terra - Featuring Copper and Gold Foil on the tuck case
  • Ignis - With deep Red and Gold Foil
  • Noctis - This is the Limited Edition deck, featuring Silver foil case

The choice of the name Gemini is based on the peculiarity of the court cards (JQK) on the standard editions (Terra and Ignis). At first glance the figures of each card look perfectly symmetrical, but they are not. The designer depicted each edition as twins (Gemini in latin) but they are not identical, so you will see small differences when you look closely.

"With this deck, I wanted a classical, medieval feeling. The aces are depicted as axes and the figures on the court cards interact with their own pip, which becomes part of the illustration." 

The pips (2 to 10) are big and they take a lot of space. I used an unconventional index, which is horizontal instead of vertical. I used a prototype for testing and found that it is very playable and easy to read." - Lorenzo, Stockholm17
