The cards come in a sleek cigarette-style box, not a box of foil-wrapped packs as I expected.
The top slides right off.
The checklist art.
So, the set has 31 subjects with 2 cards each; one drawn by a man, the other by a woman.
Puzzle cards. There are 3 sets of 3. Here’s how my first box turned out.
All 31 cards in the base set, which you get in every box. You only get half of the women’s cards. 😦
Some of the women’s art.
Black and white variants of both A and B variants come mixed in. Here are a few I got.
I do like that they featured many women in the set, and provide modern info like websites for all the artists.
Here are the two unicorn cards.
A sketch card! This card is 100% hand-drawn.
I lucked into a double sketch card! It’s bad-ass!
An acquaintance of mine, Kat Laurange, works as a professional artist. She has done work for Marvel and Cryptozoic Entertainment. A few months back she posted about a set of cards coming from Braiiinz Publishing in Mexico, called Beauty & the Myth.
It’s been about 15 years since I last collected any non-gaming trading cards, but Beauty & the Myth interested me, and I try to support my artist friends when I can.
So, here are some pics!
