Pinocchio Vermilion Playing Cards (Red) by Elettra Deganello
Centuries ago there lived a king! My little readers will say immediately, "Children, you are mistaken. Once upon a time there was a piece of wood."
That's the beginning of one of the most famous children's novel in history, written by Carlo Collodi (nom de plume of Carlo Lorenzini, born in Florence, on the 24th of November, 1826) and translated into 240 different languages.
Pinocchio Vermilion focuses on the figure of Fire-Eater and sees a predominance of red. Moreover, Fire-Eater is the lead of the back design.
The moments illustrated in the deck are the darkest ones, especially those intimately connected to the puppeteer and to the circus scenario.
The tuck box and the back of Pinocchio Vermilion are decorated with highly detailed and balanced graphics and illustrations.
