Inspiration and/or artwork came from a number of victorian era printed sources including Cheselden’s Osteographia (1733), The Rime of the Ancient Mariner (1798), Under the Waves: Diving in Deep Waters, A Tale (1876), Bilder-Atlas zur wissenschaftlich-populären Naturgeschichte der Wirbelthiere (1864), Gustave Doré’s “Death on a Pale Horse” & "Achan Is Stoned to Death", Dictionnaire Infernal (1818), Osteographia - The Anatomy of Bones (1733), Traité de phrénologie humaine et comparée, accompagné d'un magnifique atlas in-folio de 120 planches, contenant plus de 60 sujets d'anatomie humaine et comparée, d'une parfaite execution (1832), misc victorian era advertising prints and other sources. These collections of art were updated, even modified in some cases, and broken out into categories by suit: Hearts - Victorian Era Anatomy, Spades - Victorian Era advertising, Clubs - bizarre Victorian Era story telling, Diamonds - Victorian Era nature illustrations.
Agenda Redux is all about the colours and details, in contrast to the monotone and minimalism of V1. Subtle enhancements are added to the card back, court cards, aces and jokers to for a more balanced and organic look and feel. The elements that represent change and transformation from V1, the serpent, the flower, the waves, the triangles, the sun, moon and stars, the eyeless monarchs and the mandala, are all present in Agenda Redux.
The Redux Go Deck is a new, exciting and ultra portable deck that is part of Flagrant Agenda's Kickstarter Project, Agenda Playing Card Redux. The main idea for Redux Go Deck is about making a move and being mobile, settling in nicely with the core concepts of Agenda Redux on change and transformation with change, and transformation as signifying moving from the present to an ideal future. The Redux Go Deck is partly inspired by other portable deck projects, as well as Chinese playing cards, which feature such strip-like dimensions prominently in various forms.
Redux Go Deck is produced and distributed by Flagrant Agenda and features:
Custom pressed tuck case printed with premium blue uncoated paper and white and gold hot foil stamping
