Inspired by the works of William Shakespeare, these decks are based on the themes prevalent in his work: Life and Death. The themes of life and death are represented with the motif of Thorns and Roses. Thorns embody the pain of loss and death found in these works, and Roses the sweetness of love and life.
The decks feature four of Shakespeare's best known works: Hamlet, Romeo & Juliet, Macbeth and King Lear. The Roses deck interprets these characters with an item of significance while the Thorns deck depicts their method of death. This unique set is a must for any fan of great literature and great playing cards.
The tuck boxes and the cards were printed by the USPCC, so quality is assured. The tuck boxes feature intricate foil and embossing, as well as foil deck seals. The cards are covered in metallic inks for added shine and elegance.
