Bara JA-JA. A deck to laugh your head off

 

 

 

All his life dedicated to comics, illustration and graphic design, Carlos García Valverde created over thirty years ago (1980), as a gift to a friend in the military service, a Spanish deck of 40 cards full of comic situations. It was completely handmade and manually plasticized.

 

 

Social networks reconnected both friend after many years, and they remembered old times, including that almost forgotten exclusive deck. and made a digital scan. After publishing the images on his blog, the raising interest among collectors and fans prompted the artist to create a 200 decks limited edition.

 

 

Carlos has even another unique deck he created as a gift to his girlfriend (now his wife), which could also use to create a limited edition.

 

 

You can visit Carlos’ blog to view more info about the deck and some links to buy it.

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 ...
