Flush Fatale highlights 54 influential women from history. Spanning women of countless eras and professions, the deck of cards shows the importance of women throughout the ages, and tells their stories via stunning full colours illustrations. Listed below are the Clubs in the deck of cards.
Accompanying each woman is a short biography of her life and achievements. A longer biography will be included in the Flush Fatale Booklet that is available in our Kickstarter. Check back often! These images will be updated with sketches, colour studies, and eventually the final art for each woman from history!
