I love the decks available from Art of Play, and this is one of their more elegant ones. The MAKERS deck is hard to describe - but words that come to mind are elegance, class, and luxury.
The tuck box is extremely stylish, with intricate detail that is highlighted with embossed gold foil. Phrases like "Special Reserve", "Revered Quality for All Beholders", "Made True", "Crafted for the Order of the Makers by the Buck Brothers & Company", and "Tribute to the Many Worldly Doers" are carefully arranged in small print. It's hard to imagine a tuck box that looks more classy or impressive from the outside.
Designed by the studio of Chad Michael and produced in-house by Dan and Dave Industries after two years of design, this is a deck they consider to be the most intricate and luxurious in the Dan & Dave catalogue.
The cards themselves have a intricate back design, while the number cards have a style that matches the rest of the deck. The court cards have custom illustrations intended to represent the foundational "makers" civilization has been built on - hence the name of the deck.
If you're in the market for something creative, unique, unusual, memorable, and hard to find or duplicate, it's hard to think of a better place to look than the decks from Art of Play, and this is a fine example of their quality and creativity.
