Room52 is presented by Lunzi, a famous Cardist from China and one of the lead illustrators for Ark Playing Cards. With "Room & Space" as the theme, doors have been used a tangible object to evoke the feeling of motels and keycards frequently seen in road-trip movies. This set contains the both the red and silver editions of Room52.
For the illustrations, Lunzi utilized water-based pens commonly used in early card designsto create the physical art before scanning. He aims to present authentic historical design elements, and drew inspiration from the Dexter indexes, a classic introduced around 1878 which lasted until about 1890.
The embossed tuck boxes are crafted from deluxe specialty paper and hot foil both inside and out. Linen finish and thin stock ensure superior handling that was important to Lunzi, being a cardist himself. The red deck has a red color scheme while the silver deck has a more silver-gray tones, and also comes with a custom deck seal.
