Description

It is uncertain if time travel is physically possible, nevertheless, we welcome you to pre-Victorian, early 19th century, and the precisely restored deck of "HODGES" Astronomical NEW ROYAL PLAYING CARDS. Originally published by mysterious bookseller and stationer Charles Hodges of Portman Square, London in the year 1828.

In collaboration with the producer Will Roya at PCD, these decks were painstakingly digitally hand-restored by AZURED OX. Great care was taken with regard to each detail, breathing fresh new life into this historical deck. Together we strive to recreate beautiful but yet forgotten pieces of playing cards from the past and bring them back to life.
