Lovecraft Playing Cards

The fine folks of the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society have produced a little something something for the shopping season in the form of Lovecraftian Playing Cards.

It’s a standard 52 card deck (plus 2 jokers), but and this is where things get spicey, the face cards depict Cthulhu, Shub Niggurath and Nyarlathotep; the ace of spades has an Elder Sign and Lovecraft himself is the joker.  Holy moly I want a set of these cards.

They were created by the team of illustrator Darrell Tutchton and graphic designer Andrew Leman.  And all for the low price of £9.99.  Unfortunately, the cards were linked to by Boing Boing this morning and they are already sold out.  No word on when additional sets will be available.
