Note: This deck is an unnumbered artist edition. Very rare, almost impossible to obtain. The deck will come with a custom acrylic as pictured in latter photo.
The Artist's Edition Actuators were the first in a series of cards dedicated to portraying the Steampunk aesthetic. With over 350 hours of hand drawn illustration, Lance T. Miller has captured the essence of the Steampunk genre and combined it with a high-class Victorian appeal.
The faces have been re-imagined as a sub-militant family regime as the head of each suit. The Queens boast of intelligence and power and are clearly the stars in this fantasy art playing card deck. Each deck is individually serialized with hand-stamped gold ink to authenticate it's rarity; only 2500 decks and 100 uncut sheets were made for this series. Steampunk is a cultural movement that considers what clothing and everyday things would look like and how things would be made if the industrial revolution had happened during the Victorian Era (1837-1901).
So if we had turned to steam power early and not gone nuclear, what would things look like? What types of people would be depicted as icons of the time? This deck explores these questions and offers a new perspective. These are Steampunk playing cards with a Victorian flair. They feature hand drawn artwork by Lance T. Miller and have a story to tell.
