A few days ago, the latest campaign by Ben Jones (Elephant Playing Cards) ended successfully funded with a unique deck, Pipmen World, the last deck of the Pipmen series. Ben has launched an “express campaign” to create a complement to the previous one: PIPMEN WORLD FULL ART.
Apart from the original semi-transformation style used in all the previous editions, Pipmen World not only shows the popular characters of the saga but also reveals the entire pipmen universe. Each card is a small piece of a huge puzzle in which we will see more than 150 little men in 16 different environments.
Each suit depicts a different environment: the city, the air, the ocean and the earth. Like in previous decks, the court cards show reversible pipmen with their own story to tell, all related to their own environment. While the jokers represent two epic heroes that paint the stars and bear the weight of the world on their shoulders, the back of the cards show the entire world in a one-way style.
In this campaign Ben offers a borderless version of the PipMen World deck, something that his backers asked for in the previous campaign but had no time to offer. Otherwise, the designs of the cards are the same as in the original deck.
The tuck case is also different, like wrapped by the pipmen universe. If it reaches funds enough, it can include silver foil.
The deck will be printed by MPC in a very limited print run so they will be available even before the LPCC edition.
The campaign is already funded so if you’re a PipMen fan or just like the idea, visit the project website and raise your pledge.
