Vanda Violet Playing Cards. The minimalist design in purple blue

  Vanda decks pioneered projects of minimalist decks in Kickstarter. It was a great success and the starting point of David GoldKlang as a playing cards designer.

This version joins its predecessors Golden and Crimson which, by the way, is sold out at the official store and you can get it only in the secondary market. I admit my predilection for these…

Bacon Cards by Vanda Playing Cards. The crispy deck is here

  Over a year ago, David Goldklang (Vända Playing Cards) tried to print a deck in collaboration with Baconery, a well known company specialized in food made with bacon.
