With a coming-to-life puppet as the protagonist, this deck depicts a parallel universe on paper where the once manipulated is now the manipulator. It invites you to rethink your relation with the quickly evolving society and the differences between invisible control and self-imposed shackles.

All 54 cards are singly drawn with storytelling details. When viewed in succession, the number cards within each suit appear to simulate some forms shapeshifting or the puppet's hands moving. Each ace card is truly the node from which the artist's vision branches into a dozen more bizarre drawings.

My second order

I have bought from vermillion before and the cards were awesome! So I came for more. My son in law collects playing cards and I had bought him the Lovecraft cards for his birthday last year. These cards have incredible aer work, and according to him, the cards themselves, are exceptional quality. I have just recently bought him a 3rd deck for another birthday. These cards are good quality!
