Shogun Playing Cards are borne out of a passion for Japanese history and playing cards. Inspiration has been taken from the Edo period, which boasts a rich 260-year history. The deck itself is based around the life of Ieyasu, one of the most significant figures in Japanese history; Ieyasu was a warrior, statesman and founder of the Tokugawa dynasty of shoguns.
What started off as an idea in 2015 has stemmed into a beautiful piece of art and journey of expanding horizons.
