The printed pieces remind me of Nestorgames, and of the Bauhaus chess aesthetic. I thought abstract players might appreciate it...

What... no Sittuyin?
I wish they taken more closeups of the pieces.

Thanks for posting!

Sittuyin is included. Also, there is a link where you can download hi resolution versions of the photos.

I find it especially interested how they implemented Shogi--the movements of the pieces are indicated by the shape of the base, and the movements of the promoted versions by the shape of the top of the piece. The pieces are promoted by flipping them over so that the base becomes the top and vice versa.
