Any fan of contemporary playing cards will find familiar the name of Brendan Hong. Illustrator and designer, he has always been associated to the work by Jackson Robinson and Kings Wild Project thanks to his constant collaborations and his fantastic job in the design of THE HIVE cards series.
Now, after a period of reflection, Brendan has embarked on his first solo adventure: DYNASTY Playing Cards.
With a very personal style, Brendan uses his oriental roots to create a very peculiar deck full of references to the Chinese culture. These references are wisely mixed with the traditional cards creating a really interesting set. The court cards depict characters taken from any epic tale carrying weapons and other complements with strong cultural and historical connotations. The suits have been completely customized with a stylish and unique look.
Two different editions, both printed by the Expert Playing Card Company, will be created: the Jade Edition with the tuck case and back in green, and the Imperial Red Edition, with a more elaborated tuck case, embossed and red foiled inside and outside, limited to 1000 units and with some differences with the Jade edition as the border design, jokers or the ace of spades.
