Love Is A Smoke Playing Cards Classic Edition Deck by Passione Italy
The Classic Edition is the evolution of the Christmas Edition, a limited edition printed as a collector preview. This custom poker-size playing card deck is dedicated to a time long passed, from the nineteenth century to the roaring sixties.
Each suit represents a different “family”: hearts “the Jacquards” impersonate seduction; spades “the Paisleys” are dangerous gangsters; clubs “the Pied-de-poules” are immigrants and diamonds “the Tartans” represent the wealthy bourgeoisie. Fabrics, colours and the ubiquitous smoke, as an illustration element, give the deck a strong mood/style.
The tuck case is embellished with an UV coating, in order to make red and smoke accents shine, and sports a custom round seal.
