"At first glance the figures of each card look perfectly symmetrical, but they are not. I depicted them as twins (Gemini in Latin), so you will be spotting differences when you look at the details. I wanted to keep a classic feeling, medieval. The Aces are depicted as axes and the figures on the court cards interact with their own pip, which becomes part of the illustration. The pips (2 to 10) are big and they take a lot of space. I used an unconventional index, which is horizontal instead of vertical. I tested the deck; it is very readable and you can play with it, especially for Burraco."
