Handcrafted In London
Flesh & Bones is a completely custom, hand illustrated deck of playing cards, designed in London by Dual Originals. Each card has been rigorously designed to create a unique deck that combines digital precision with illustrative flair.
The court cards feature detailed, hand-drawn illustrations based on mythical creatures like the Kraken and a Nymph, and ancient gods, such as Triton and Medusa. Designers, Chris and Marylou have always had a passion for the weird and wonderful and wanted to express their take on it through this deck.
Contrastingly, the tuck box and back designs are precise and minimal, consisting of illusional line patterns and geometric shapes.
Some of you may be wondering how cards and memory work together: you can draw from your long-term procedural memory (of which you can be entirely unaware), to play a game, and you’ll need short-term working memory to hold card faces in your memory long enough to compare them, and some short-term memory to think a few plays back, as well as prospective memory to plan your hands a few plays forward… in other words, card play is both simple and light, as well as exciting and fun.
We’ve classified all of our cards in the Exciting Wave, because these products are interactive, and exciting; they require more effort, for more payoff! If the effort isn’t known to the person because they perhaps are not able to retain the current play in their memory long enough to know they have played a hand (but can still draw on their procedural memories from their long-term storage to look as if they are playing just as before)… play away! Like any game, there are rules, of course. But at times, just playing is enough. And the people with whom we play – if they accept us as we are – will allow for variations in this game and any other.
