    Well done! Really rather brilliant! Figured out a themed card game to go with 'em?

    And now for today's card:

    Three of Cogs

    I know- not as exciting as yesterday's knave, but, well, they can't ALL be face cards.

    Definately on my to-get list. Because it's pretty in the way I find things pretty.

    @Dimitri I was wondering if you had a reason for putting the numbers in the upper right corner? As far as I can recall, every deck of playing cards I've seen has the number in the upper left.

    @arcaner- No reason beyond aesthetics- I simply liked it there rather than on the left, where they ended up bleeding into the background a lot more.

    @rootfireember- My god. I so hadn't noticed that. Now I can't get it out of my head.


    Anyways, time for today's card:

    The Four of Bones

    How do you determine which suit a card belongs to?

    I see on your website that you've named the suits. Have you ranked them?
    Also, these cards seem to be designed for display, rather than play, with the ranks of the cards pushed up into the square corners. Are you considering a modified design for a set with rounded corners?

    @howyadoin- typically, by what's on the card- cogs and bones are fairly obvious, circles will always be occult sigils of one kind or another, and sea will always have sea life of some kind.

    @MrMonk- I have not as yet set any kind of official ranking for the suits- that's typically determined by the game played, not by the deck.
    As for the printing, they will be printed on round-cornered cards- the current images show (pointy points? What's the technical term here?) as they do because: 1)setting up rounded corners across multiple layers in photoshop is an absolute bitch. 2) because I'm also offering large-scale print versions of these via DeviantArt, which would print with blank corners on fully rectangular paper- which in my own opinion, looks tacky as all hell. Anyways, I'm over-explaining stuff, but the biggest and most important part is this- the numbers have already been placed properly, and will print just inside the rounded corners- we've checked, measured, and test-printed that part already.
