I haven't seen this mentioned here, so for Steve Minty fans:

HANA Luxury Playing Cards Deck!
"This time around, I wanted to do something that was focused on Japanese culture and be more art-centric than the previous decks I have done. When it came to inspiration and research, I looked at the history of playing cards in Japan as well as the art that makes them special. I must add that I had the assistance of one backer who is particularly insightful with Japanese playing cards and culture (you know who you are!). These are still works in progress that may or may not change and I am looking at an early January launch on Kickstarter! Let me know what you think!"

I must say his Anubis and Osiris decks are *so* amazing. I get crazy compliments from anyone who sees them - just gorgeous! So... of course I'm excited about this new project.

Very nice. Wouldn't it be cool to have a hanafuda deck as part of this project?

Superb. I have a few Japanese decks and this captures the spirit perfectly without simply cut and pasting. Can't wait to see more!

I voted for Steve for DOTY in '15 for Olympia and I'm very much considering Anubis to be my DOTY vote this year. In other words I'll definitely be backing these.

Steve Minty has put out only awesome decks so far. I am positive that this will be another home run.

The tease on this is stunning, I am constantly impressed by Steve's designs and can't wait to see more of this. Anyone know if it will be pulling double duty as a Hanafuda deck? Something along the lines of Ovdiyenko's Arcane deck perhaps?

So is it safe to assume this will have Hanafuda faces? Will he incorporate poker faces on there also?

Expect sublime Minty perfection.
Expect to have to buy some to find out.
Expect you'll be dumbfounded at the awsome talent.
Expect Minty Magic.

Not stoked on the tuck... I feel like it loses some of the traditional Japanese design appeal

Anyone know what the cards look like? It's such a beautiful design, I'm hoping mine would be as appealing as his :)

I don't believe any pictures have been released yet but Steve Minty never fails to deliver. There will be pictures before he asks for our money, so stay tuned.
