Cartes Infernals

April 27th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

If you’re someone who enjoys devilish art, especially in the form of pack of oversized cards, this Kickstarter project by Ariana Osborne might be just the thing for you.

Osborne is illustrating the 69 demons from the Dictionnaire Infernal, a 19th Century compendium of demons by Jacque Auguste Simon Collin de Plancy.

Demons like Abraxas and Cerberus, Bael and Alastor. Very magical, and despite their grusomeness, quite beautiful.

Not only is she making an absolutely gorgeous deck, Osborne’s also put together a PDF featuring all the cards and a more detailed description of each demon.

Take a look at the video below to hear what the artist herself has to say about her project, and visit her Kickstarter page to see the gifts she’s offering to those who donate.

She’s already raised at least five times what she was looking for, so the Cartes Infernals is definitely going forward. It’s not too late though, to get in on the action yourself.
