We love books. We think reading is important and that play is integral to life. Our hope was to make a fun, great-looking game that celebrated some of the most important writers of the 20th century.
All of the authors in the deck have made valuable contributions to literature, helped define the modern novel and influenced generations of writers. Many of their novels, essays and short story collections appear on "top 100 books of the 20th century" lists. Many are Pulitzer, Nobel and National Book Critics Circle Award Winners.
To give the game a timelessness, we only chose authors who are deceased and wrote the game in such a way as to include as many authors as we could. With a 54-card deck, we couldn't include everyone we would have liked, however we are considering offering additional Literary Sets for sale to augment the deck. Let us know who you'd like to see included.
Best wishes and have fun,
Gina Manola, Nick Rudd & Townes Durbin
