The Planets is a collection of decks representing the planets in our solar system, starting closest to the sun and moving outwards into the surrounding universe. This is the most luxurious Vanda deck series to date. The sixth deck of this series is Saturn.
Saturn is considered to rule Capricorn, which is symbolized by the goat, hence the goat-like beings represented in the Saturn court cards. The Jacks allude to Saturn, and its Greek counterpart Cronus, being associated with the passing of time and relevance to the harvest seasons. Notice that the hats worn by the Jacks are shaped like the planet itself. Look closely and you’ll find other symbolism woven into the illustrations of the courts.
The tuckboxes will be printed by Clove St. Press, producers of gorgeous letterpress printing. The decks will be printed by the United States Playing Card Company (USPC), makers of Bicycle & Bee brand decks and supplier to casinos around the world.
