The Dutch Card House Company introduces you with pride to our new brand Secret Tale Playing Cards. A new series of fully custom luxury playing cards with stories about legends that have never been told before.
We are all familiar with the Arthurian Legend of the young son of King Uther Pendragon, raised and educated by the sorcerer Merlin, who ascends to the throne of Great Britain after drawing the magical sword, Excalibur, from a sacred stone. But what if there was another story-a secret story-that told even more about Arthur’s fate?
That is the story the deck explores. The absolutely fascinating storyline and concept idea by Jannieke van Geet and beautiful narrative by Elizabeth Romeril. The deck showcases old folk art combined with antique colors from the Middle Ages making these decks of cards the perfect stage for the Secret Tale of King Arthur: ‘Merlins Confession’. The artwork is detailed with a clean modern design on the back, faces, and tuck case. Here you have a closer look at the design
