Experience an epic tale of heartbreak and magic with Fillide: A Sicilian Folk Tale Playing Cards, the debut project from Jocu Playing Cards.
This gorgeous deck designed in Italy by Sicilian artist Alessandra Gagliano is inspired by the legendary mythological story of Fillide which has been passed down from generation to generation and has greatly impacted the diverse mix of cultures and ancient traditions on the Italian island.
All of the face cards in this deck are fully-customized with a mix of unique illustrations and reimagined pips. The Court Cards feature easily recognizable characters from Greek and Roman mythology that were popular in Sicilian folklore and the Aces feature the most iconic moments from the Fillide tale—from Fillide and Amacante’s meeting and unfortunate parting, to Fillide’s death and eventual blossoming upon Acamante's return.
This Terra Brown version of Fillide: A Sicilian Folk Tale Playing Cards uses gorgeous gold inks in the back design for an extra touch of elegance. Each deck also comes wrapped in a luxurious matte tuck box with matching gold accents, embossed detailing and lovely interior printing.
Fillide: A Sicilian Folk Tale Playing Cards are printed by Cartamundi on their innovative True Linen B9 stock, making them the perfect addition to the collection of any magician, cardist, gambler, collector or lover of magical items.
