Bicycle Sky Descender Playing Cards. Chinese fables and tradition

 

In ancient Chinese fable a Dragon had supreme power. He also had 9 decedent who helped him rule the world. However, the Dragon disappeared one day, leaving with 12 powerful creatures who claim that they are the Dragon’s decedent. Nobody knows which 9 of them are truly the sky descender

This is the amazing story behind this deck based on a group of Chinese creatures designed in a simple and at the same time detailed style: Bicycle Sky Descender.

The court cards represent each one of the 12 powerful creatures of the story and all the cards have been customized following an elegant and almost monochromatic but quite bold design. The deck will be printed by the USPCC and Bicycle branded and will have a couple gaff cards (blank and double back).

The project is almost finished and already funded. You have just some hours to get this deck during the campaign so if you like the cards, visit the project website and raise your pledge.

Good luck!

I would like to complete my collection of Bicycle decks some day, but now I know that is impossible ...
