Our Penny Dreadful Trading Cards Season 1 contains four chase sets. We commonly create Quotable chase sets, but creating one for this set proved particularly challenging because so much of the series dialogue is poetic and quotable.
As I mentioned in the previous blog entry, the Penny Dreadful team has been very supportive of our trading card product. When we kicked off production, we communicated a few wish lists, one focused on screen-used props.
By a wide margin, the best days in the Product Development department start with deliveries. Style guides, unit photography, copy from show writers, sketch cards, wardrobe and props. It's always exciting to open the deliveries because we're never sure what's inside.
In Showtime's Penny Dreadful, Vanessa Ives is clairvoyant and an expert medium. Among her tools is a set of tarot cards. For our trading cards set, the studio supplied her screen-used deck to be inserted as authentic prop cards.
