⚡ After 9 months of sweating every tiny detail, the most luxurious Vanda deck series to date was launched on Kickstarter. The Planets is a collection of decks representing the planets in our solar system, starting closest to the sun and moving outwards into the surrounding universe.

⚡ The first deck of this series is Mercury, featuring creatures with stone-like heat-resistant skin. The second was Venus. The third was Earth, featuring their version of standard human courts. The fourth deck of this series is Mars, featuring an all-male court.

⚡ The fifth deck of this series is Jupiter, featuring one-eyed bull-like creatures. From the artist: “Jupiter was named after god of the sky and thunder and king of the gods in Ancient Roman religion and mythology. The Romans regarded Jupiter as the equivalent of Greek Zeus.

⚡ So, I want this creature to be strong and powerful. There’s a story in Greek mythology when Zeus metamorphosed into a beautiful white bull. I took this as an inspiration. But I didn’t want just to draw an ordinary bull, more like a creature that resembles a bull. The crown is big and beautiful, because Jupiter is king of the gods. Now, the one eye. On the actual planet, the Jupiter’s great red eye (or the red spot) was my inspiration. So, just like the planet has one big eye, so do the creatures living in it. I think it’s nice symbolism.”

⚡ The sixth deck of this series is Saturn. Saturn is considered to rule Capricorn, which is symbolized by the goat, hence the goat-like beings represented in the Saturn court cards. The Jacks allude to Saturn, and its Greek counterpart Cronus, being associated with the passing of time and relevance to the harvest seasons. Notice that the hats worn by the Jacks are shaped like the planet itself. Look closely and you’ll find other symbolism woven into the illustrations of the courts.

⚡ The seventh deck of this series is Uranus, featuring skybound creatures with winglike feathered gills on the sides of their heads. Uranus is the god of the sky and thus tied to the constellations formed by stars and the signs of the zodiac. Each of the 12 court cards include a zodiac sign incorporated into their clothes. Suit assignments for each sign follow the traditional Tarot associations (see photo).

⚡ The final eighth deck of this series is Neptune, featuring monsterlike sea creatures that thrive on the planet’s freezing watery surface.

⚡ The tuckboxes will be printed by Clove St. Press, producers of gorgeous letterpress printing. The decks will be printed by the United States Playing Card Company (USPC), makers of Bicycle & Bee brand decks and supplier to casinos around the world. Tucks: 2 foils, embossing, interior foil, black/blue paper stock. Cards: USPC Bicycle stock, Embossed finish
