You may recall when I gushed about Jonathan Horn's hand-printed Supramystic Saga trading cards a few months back. He recently sent me a few packs from his splendid new series, "Luminaries Vol. II," which features such fine folks as Maria Sibylla Merian, Johannes Kepler, and other sci-mystic geniuses throughout history:
The saga continues...
with sixteen new hand-printed scientist cards from Aglaonike of Thessaly to Anders Angstrom. These luminaries from the history of human inquiry feature original illustrations by 5 Seattle artists including Eisner-award winning David Lasky, Eroyn Franklin, Max Clotfelter, Owen Cursinger & Jon Horn.
This third installment in the Supramystic Saga was screen printed in June & July at Fogland Studios in the SODO neighborhood of Seattle, WA.
The cards are printed on paver red 100# poster stock from the French Paper Co. in Niles, MI. They were cut down at 112 Printworks in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle.
Each pack is sewn and sealed with burgundy thread and a gold-on-kraft label & includes a random selection of 5 cards in 3 rarites denoted by the gold, silver or natural border color.
Four super-rare Easter egg packs with custom gold packaging were pressed that each include all five rare cards.
Each pack is different, so collect them all! You can order your own set(s) of these beauties here.
