Note: This is an inspired deck – I didn’t create this deck, so no further discussion will be entertained. It’s my job to highlight any known issues, present the research, and your choice if you wish to add this to your collection.
For me, I’m a huge Le Petit Prince fan, so I obsessively collecting everything.
The Little Prince went into the public domain as of 1st January 2015. However, there is some controversy about the book’s characters being protected by standalone trademarks, as the estate still derives revenue from the use of the title or characters. You can read this article if you’re interested.
It’s probably why WohStudios chose to avoid any IP issues with the French or English titles, and used the Italian title instead. Still arguable, so I understand if some folks feel uncomfortable about collecting this. Full disclosure given!
“It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.”
“You’re beautiful, but you’re empty…One couldn’t die for you. Of course, an ordinary passerby would think my rose looked just like you. But my rose, all on her own, is more important than all of you together, since she’s the one I’ve watered. Since she’s the one I put under glass, since she’s the one I sheltered behind the screen. Since she’s the one for whom I killed the caterpillars (except the two or three butterflies). Since she’s the one I listened to when she complained, or when she boasted, or even sometimes when she said nothing at all. Since she’s my rose.”
This is the story of a grown-up meeting his inner child, embodied by a Little Prince. Traveling from an asteroid, he left his rose there to discover the world. Before landing on Earth he visited many planets and their inhabitants where all grown-ups incarnates humankind’s most common vice. When a fox tell him that the eyes are blind and we are responsible forever for what you tame, the Little Prince go back home to meet again with his Rose.
Born in New York , The Little Prince is a worldwide Publishing Phenomenon.

From the designer “Pharmacist” from WohStudios:
“All adults were children, although only a few remember.” – “The Little Prince”
I think everyone should have read “The Little Prince” when they were growing up, and even if they haven’t read this book, they should have heard some stories of the Little Prince…
It all starts with a pilot who is forced to land in the Sahara Desert due to a plane failure and meets the mysterious little prince. The little prince comes from planet B612, and during his travels he meets the king who likes power, the vain man, the ashamed drunkard, the mercenary merchant, the conformist lamp holder, the geographer who is out of touch with reality, and finally comes to Earth and meets the snake, the three-petal desert flower, the rose garden, the wrenchman, the merchant, and the love mentor in his life, a mature and wise fox.
The author, Antoine Saint-Exupery, was also a free man, perhaps the “Little Prince” was his alter self. He envies that the little prince can travel freely in the universe, can see all kinds of people and big and small things, and the process of talking with the little prince is also talking to another self in his heart.
Those who have read this book will find that there is a little shadow of each of us in “The Little Prince”, from which we understand the meaning of innocence, love, growth, and adulthood…
The pilot in the book loves drawing since he was a child, but what he draws is always so strange in the eyes of adults. When he was 6 years old, the pilot drew a python that ate an elephant and showed it to adults, but it was mistaken for a hat. In order to make the adults understand the picture, the pilot drew the elephant in the belly of the python, but the impatient adult said: put these useless pictures aside, and focus on geography, history, arithmetic and grammar.
When we were young, what we did may not always be understood by adults, who felt that time should be focused on studying. As the little prince said, “All adults were children, although only a few remember.” “At all times, a childlike heart is one of our most precious things, because with a childlike heart, we can love all things in the world. Even though the adult world is full of thorns, we can still see the world differently.
On the planet of the little prince, there are roses that he loves. But this rose is proud, she will let the little prince water herself every day, make a windproof glass cover, and even deliberately cough to prove the little prince’s love for her. Rose also loves the little prince, but her love is too sharp, not only stabbing others, but also hurting herself. But Rose didn’t understand this, so the little prince reluctantly chose to say goodbye and embarked on a distant journey. Later, he meets the fox and understands the price of submitting…
When we were young, we always didn’t know love, we used our proud self-esteem to protect ourselves, but later we understood: “Maybe there are five thousand flowers exactly like you in the world, but only you are my unique rose.”
Unconsciously, we feel that growing up does not make us understand more, but becomes more lonely. As the little prince said: “At one point, I saw forty-four sunsets. After a while, he said, “You know, when a person is sad, he always likes to watch the sunset.”
In the process of growing up, we are always meeting and saying goodbye, maybe lonely, just to prove that we have more peace in our hearts… Sometimes, loneliness is not a bad thing. Because loneliness can make us quiet down and appreciate more beauty in this world.
Before arriving on Earth, the little prince met six people with very different personalities on six planets: the king who coveted power, the vain man, the decadent drunkard, the calculating businessman, the persistent lamplighter and the rigorous geographer…
Will one day we forget what kind of adults we want to be, and will we also become the ones written in the book? I just hope that no matter what we always do, we will remember the original appearance in our hearts.
This is a fairy tale book for children, but adults often get more out of it……. As the author writes in the opening preface: “This book is dedicated to an adult, because every adult begins with a child.” ”
This year marks the 80th anniversary of the creation of “The Little Prince”. On this occasion, we and IL Piccolo Principe jointly launched the 80th anniversary edition of the Little Prince to express our eternal pursuit and remembrance of “love”, “innocence” and “self”. Hats off to this great, romantic Mr. Pilot.
Here, I sincerely invite everyone with a childlike heart to follow in the footsteps of the little prince to pursue the truth, examine the self, and think about the definition of bonds.
