Memento Mori from Art of Play featuring completely custom and unique suits with red faces.
In this stunning deck designed by Michael Mateyko of KOMBOH CREATIVE, traditional suits have been reimagined to create stars, swords, flies, and feathers: symbols of order, aspiration, chaos, and scavenging respectively. The imagery adorning both the cards and ominous embossed tuck call attention to medieval existentialism, the occult, and divine mathematics; and believe us when we say, when we first saw them we were speechless.
Printed by The United States Playing Card Company and packaged inside a custom tuck box featuring foil accents and a unique die-cut window with clear-plastic covering.
Limited edition of only 2,500 decks.
Memento Mori: Genesis is Adrian Valenzuela's reimagining of the widely celebrated design. With Humble beginnings as a self-challenge to re-create the brand using only 3D software, this redesign takes the familiar low poly skull into a fully rendered 3-dimensional masterpiece.
While in earlier iterations the poly's were drawn with their own unique color, this recreation uses a collection of glass polys and painted with a photorealistic light source to create the broad spectrum of colors that makes the Memento Mori series unique. It is the next iteration of modern design that will be remembered by the ages. Never forget your own humble beginnings. Memento Mori: Genesis
Chris Ramsay, internet legend, designed his own cards, and this is what he created.
Memento Mori is Latin for “remember you will die” and this philosophy is reflected in the amazing design of these cards. Featuring two isometric human skulls. Rather than being morbid, it’s more about how transient life and your pursuits are on this Earth. Our time is fleeting, and should be used wisely.
