Aztec Codex Playing Cards. The Ancient Culture with a fun and colorful touch


Emmanuel Valtierra is a versatile artist in love with design and music. One of his latest projects is a deck of cards just released: Aztec Codex.

Born in Texas, Emmanuel lived and grew for 15 years in northern Mexico, where he could drink from the sources of such a rich artistic culture. Inspired by the ancient Aztec civilization, the artist has given these cards his own personality with fun and colorful designs that find their sense on the deepest roots of the Aztec world (kings, gods, warriors, …).



It is a fresh proposal inspired by an ancient art. A very special deck that will be printed by Make Playing Cards.

Enjoy the images and visit the project website to raise your pledge.

Good luck!
