Bicycle ELEMENTAL Playing Cards. The Four Elements series

 

The idea of ??the elements as the foundation of life and nature arises in ancient times and in many cultures from east to west. These elements have traditionally been linked to philosophy, medicine or astrology and its relevance has been highlighted by famous people from Thales of Miletus to Shakespeare. Based on this ancient idea, Collectable Playing Cards launches a series of cards called BICYCLE ELEMENTAL.

Each deck is inspired by one of the four basic elements in Western culture: Earth, Air, Fire and Water. Back, pips and aces have been customized while the court cards keep the traditional poker aspect with new color combinations and some design variations.

As parts of a series, all have a uniform aesthetic, with a choice of colors according to the element each one represents: brown for earth, gray for wind, red and yellow for fire and blue for water.

They will be Bicycle branded printed by the USPCC. The one dedicated to Water wil be an exclusive deck made for the well-known CPC 1000 Deck club, so only the backers of this project will have the opportunity to get up to two Water decks in their pledge. After that, only Club members will be able to access to them.

The gallery shows a selection of pictures for each deck. If you like, visit the project website and raise your pledge.

Good luck!
