This Deck Has Been Inspired by Roots of the Day of the Dead

These death-inspired playing cards represent the roots of the 'Day of the Dead.' The traditional artwork of 'el Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)' has been the inspiration for these death-inspired playing cards. This style of art work was originally the work of José Posada, "a famous Mexican printmaker who brought this art form widespread attention." This man created the original works during the Mexican Revolution and the 'Calaveras' are expressed all over the world today, especially during the popular holiday 'Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).'

These cards and their illustrations have been designed and created to celebrate Posada's famous art work. Chris Ovdiyenko from Columbus, Ohio is the man behind bringing this important piece of history to the marketplace.
