Kodiak Playing Cards
Kodiak playing cards are a tribute to the last frontier, honoring adventure and the great outdoors. Inspired by our affinity for Kodiak, Alaska, we drew inspiration from one of our favorite decks, ‘Outing Playing Cards’ by Andrew Dougherty, ca 1895, and packaged them in a box reminiscent of old fairy tale books. Although they honor our personal connection with Kodiak, we hope they might inspire your own call to the wild.
Printed by The United States Playing Cards Company on a thin-crushed stock. Features include a custom ace of spades, jokers, and subtle modifications to the face cards. The box is stamped with gold foil and embossed, completing a distinguished look and feel.
First Edition, limited to 2,250 Standard Decks and 250 Gilded Decks (gold seal).
“When we first discovered Kodiak a few years ago, it was love at first sight. The small island town—charming in itself—is a welcoming gateway into the unknown: a vast wilderness, much of which is only accessible by floatplane, to be explored. In the last few years, we have watched the great brown bears, the Kodiak, gorge on salmon, and majestic bald eagles soar between craggy coastlines. We have kayaked through misty fiords, hiked along deep glacial valleys, and camped in the trails of the island’s earliest human inhabitants, places very few people have been. It is no wonder they call it the last frontier. And for us, it is a magical place with bountiful wonder yearning to be explored. North to the future.” —Dan & Dave
