Bicycle Emperor Playing Cards. The nicest Chinese cultural heritage


Joanne Lin, the manager of this project, decided to nicely combine her father’s big passions: playing cards and Chinese opera. The result is a stunning deck inspired in the Chinese cultural heritage: Bicycle Emperor deck.

The deck has been designed by Jheng-Chang Chen, a fantastic artist and assistant Professor of Department of Visual Communication Design, Shu-Te University in Taiwan.

The decks are already close to production with the US Playing Card Company and Joanne only offered 700 decks in the project website. The decks were all out in some days so she decided to release an unlimited red version for the deck, and it is great too.

I am sure you will enjoy the images and, although you haven’t had the opportunity to get the blue deck, you can raise your pledge for the red version visiting the project website.

Good luck!
