Hello everyone I am working on a deck of cards that I started 3 years ago. I had some ideas and started working on a card back and then I set it aside and finished 2 other decks. I just recently thought I would come back to the deck and I like where it is going so far. It is going to be called Phonograph 5. The colors are not official yet but pretty close here are some photos. I have several options for the card backs and would love to hear what you think.
I will not be doing the courts like I did for the joker I will be doing more traditional Courts. I am still working on them. And yes this will be a two color suits deck 2 suits red 2 suits blue unlike my previous decks.

I think a traditional joker ON a phonograph might be better than just a phonograph.
Hello everyone here is an update on my next deck Phonograph 5 which I hope to launch on Kickstarter later this year. The court cards are inspired by my favorite deck made by Goodall. Any thoughts about the colors I was thinking about doing two decks one would be the red back and one would be blue back. I was thinking about going with EPCC this time and doing one of the decks as a limited 500 print deck with special features like maybe foil on the tuck I still need to talk to bill and get some ideas for the tuck material and anything else. I wanted to do something different. Your suggestions would be much appreciated.

Hello everyone I updated the pips to black and red I think it looks good. I am still thinking about the tuck box I'm just not sure yet if I will make any changes to it but we will see. I am still finishing up my last Kickstarter getting out packages and such but I hope to launch this deck later in the year.
I think the court cards look fantastic. They are really nice and the way you put the colors together...really good.
The back design...not so much.
I might pledge just because I like the courts and they are really playable. But I'd get more if with a better back design. For some reason, I think musical notes in an old style would be a nice back design. That's my feedback. Overall, nice!
I agree with everyone else...courts are fantastic, but the back (and tuck) need some re-work...I like TG's suggestion of using music notes as it seems it would go better with the theme...keep up the great work!
Hello Everyone I decided to try something else for the card back and I think it turned out nicely. I tried to incorporate elements from the court cards and the design is based off of a similar back deign made by Goodall. I appreciate your feedback very much Thanks.
