A whole year after the first Venexiana deck, the story continues with a travel to the dark heart of 18th century Venice. Venexiana Dark features a series of obscure and marginal characters who complete the picture of this haunting city. Thieves, assassins, prostitutes, wicked noblemen and masters of deception are all on board in this imaginary gondola. Hop in and follow the journey to the unknown through the narrow canals of Venice.
During our travel, fascinating things will happen, so stay tuned for the updates (which I'll try to keep as few as possible).
Venexiana Dark is in fact two different decks: The "Masked" and the "Revealed" editions, with the first one featuring the courts wearing masks, while the second has the courts unmasked and their faces revealed!
Each deck will have a custom numbered seal, different back design color scheme, different tuck case and of course different faces. The plan is to have metallic inks on the back design and I hope we'll reach the stretch goal to make it happen.
Venexiana Dark is a limited edition. Both "Masked" and "Revealed" decks will be printed only once and never again.
