Stunning, very recent and rare deck, called “Figuris,” by high end printing company Galewski Druk of Wroclaw, Poland. The website of the company identifies Roman Galewski as the contact person for the design group, and so I have attributed the brilliant designs to him. A visit to the Galewski Druk website makes it clear that it is a printer of much more than playing cards, although this Figuris deck is one of several decks made by the company. The deck was sold to me as a “transformation” deck, but frankly, I do not agree with that categorization. It is simply a modern art deck with striking, contemporary designs.
The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 3 different Jokers. The cards are printed on a highly finished, thick stock, and the deck is 1½ times the thickness of a standard deck. These extra thick cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm. They come in the original box.
The cards and box are “as new,” except that the box is “dented” at one corner (separately pictured); this insult to the box has had no effect on the cards.
Thanks for visiting.
