The prolific Collectable Playing Cards is going to offer several releases this year with a new strategy. The decks will be produced and offered for pre-sale or sale exclusively through its official website at least 30 days before making them available to any wholesaler or store.
CPC will be producing new decks and limited reprints of popular sold out decks. Find here the most recent ones you can already get before anyone else.
The original Bicycle Gnomes deck was released in 2015 via Kickstarter and completely sold out in less than 3 months.
Designed by Alan Vadell, the artist behind Robotics and Pin-Up, the court cards show us different interpretations of these small beings with different jobs and skills. The deck is completely customized and an aged background and natural motifs integrate seamlessly into the whole idea.
CPC has made a reprint with the USPCC in a limited edition of 2388 decks with a special seal. You can you want to get it in this link (don’t forget your discount code available at the end of this article).
Bicycle Still Life is the latest CPC deck funded through Kickstarter.
The designs are inspired by the works of the great Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who since the 16th century has managed to tease the viewer’s senses with his portraits constructed from flowers, fruits, plants, animals and other objects. With hand-drawn illustrations, artist Johnny Whaam has played with the shapes, volumes and proportions of different fruits and vegetables to create pareidolias on court cards that inevitably lead us to the perception of human faces.

The hand-drawn illustrations by Johnny Whaam play with the shapes, volumes and proportions of different fruits and vegetables to create, in the court cards, a pareidolia that inevitably lead us to the perception of human faces.
The entire deck has been completely customized, extending this game of shapes to aces, jokers and numbered cards.
The USPCC has printed a limited print run of 1136 so, after fulfilling to original backers, it will probably sell out soon. If you want to get it, you can do it in this link (don’t forget your discount code available at the end of this article).
This is the sixth edition of the successful Starlight series, one of CPC’s most popular series with tens of thousands of decks printed. Earth Glow is inspired by the atmospheric glow that illuminates our planet and provides it with a unique beauty from the outer space.

It has been printed by the USPCC with their traditional high quality Bicycle stock. The deck is offered exclusively on the official CPC website until March 2022, so you can get it before anyone else in this link.
