Typographic playing cards is a classic. Nevertheless, this is one of the most elegant typography designs I have seen: The Type Deck.
The design created by Chris Cavill mixes elegant typography and stunning backgrounds in a very cool way. The final aspect of the deck is pretty interesting.
You can also visit the deck homepage to vote your favorite card design to become the tee front design.
If you like the deck and want to contribute to print it (by the USPCC), go to the project website and raise your pledge. Enjoy the gallery of images.
PS: see other typographic playing cards at my friend Collector’s website.
