Steampunk Entertainment: The Windrow-Ravensworth Deck

(The King of Cogs and the Ace of the Sea are pictured above)

While visiting the New Babbage Ning, a notice was placed by Mr. Blackberry Harvey (a tip-of-the-hat, sir!) regarding a very unique piece of art being designed by one of his RL associates, a Mr. Winneganfake.  The gentleman in question is a artist whose current work lies towards the games of chance, or in this case, designing a very unique set of card - ideal for those of a Steampunk bent.

(The Three of Sea and the Ace of Circles are pictured above)

Currently, Mr. Winneganfake is designing a new card daily, beginning in January of 2010, which approximates a completion date in March.  A more unique set of items would be hard to locate, so if one wishes to test lady-luck in a Steampunk-eque manner, pay a visit to his Deviant Art site to see a collection of complete playing cards, at:  http://winneganfake.deviantart.com/gallery/#The-Windrow-Ravenswood-Deck

If you happen to take a fancy to the work, an option to pre-order a set, along with hand-sewn bag for their care and storage.  More information on the pre-orders are available at: http://www.tormentedartifacts.com/deck.html

Wonderful stuff!

Those are pretty darned cool. Think I'm going to have pick one up. Nice little item to keep in one's pocket should one need to settle a bet over ownership of an airship.

@ Mr. Don - Indeed, they caught my eye I first saw them. I believe I shall have to pre-order a set myself!

@ Count S. Germain II - Quite agree... very reminiscent of old European playing cards (with cups and coins, ect...), but more appropriate for settling scores at ports-of-call, I'd say!
