MIDDLE KINGDOM BICYCLE deck. Chinese culture and tradition in beautiful monochrome designs

Doug Frye is an old friend devoted to playing cards and mythology. After his Aesir decks, he works again with Deveo Media in his latest creation: BICYCLE MIDDLE KINGDOM.

This time, the cards are inspired by the ancient China, its origins and its deities. With a line engraved style in a monochromatic design, court cards and aces depict relevant characters in the Chinese history, tradition and mythology.

 

 

The stunning back shows a dragon coiled in the popular Yin-Yang symbol, where the opposites are represented as a whole.

The tuck case combines the back designs with popular architectural elements.

 

 

Apart from the white deck, a black version has been designed and it will be unlocked as a stretch goal, as will other extras including custom seals and embossed tuck boxes.

The decks will be printed by the USPCC in Bicycle stock and brand.

 

 

 

Furthermore, a quite interesting golden edition could also be unlocked later.

I'm Max, a collector and passionate about playing cards. Since 2012 I try to spread this passion to everyone who goes through Max Playing Cards. In my articles I do not just talk about cards, as I try to look for the stories and the human beings behind them.

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