EQUALITY and JUSTICE Playing Cards. A fair relaunch

Only two months ago, Passione Cards  launched a set of cards that were intended to be a hallmark of their quality and hard job over the years and for the future. Unfortunately the project didn’t reach the funding goal so along the last few weeks they have made some changes to achieve the success deserved in the EQUALITY and JUSTICE Playing Cards. For the relaunch, two key changes have been made: a new printer that would allow a better scalability…

HUSTLING JOE and YE WITCHES Playing Cards. Interesting reproductions of the late Nineteenth Century

After achieving a fantastic success with the reproductions of Vanity and Faro decks, Will Roya strikes back with an exciting project with two new reproductions: HUSTLING JOE and YE WITCHES. Hustling Joe No.61 deck was first produced by the USPCC in 1895 and modified later in a second edition to correct some mistakes. The designs are comical and inspired by the relationship between playing cards and the scams, represented by the character “Joe” in the Ace of Spades. All the…

THE BOX AND LINE Playing Cards. A different deck, contemporary and with a retro touch

I have always said that one of the greatest satisfactions in my work on this website over the years is to have been able to meet new creators (and the great people behind them) and do my part in making their dreams come true, especially in their very first deck project. A few days ago I met Steven Summers, an explorer of art in motion who has been working in the creative video world for many years. Now he is…

WILD WEST Playing Cards. Decks with authentic Far West flavor

Although he has not stopped working and collaborating in playing cards design, it’s been a year since Randy Butterfield (Midnight Card Company) launched his latest solo campaign. He’s back with a fabulous success: WILD WEST. A good friend of Max Playing Cards for years, I have always recognized my weakness for Randy and his personal style. Inspired by the Wild West, Randy has used a traditional pencil-on-paper technique to capture a historical vision of one of the many episodes of late-nineteenth-century…

TRIANGLE Playing Cards. An equilateral deck

Michael Scott (Home Run Games) surprises us with a truly original deck: TRIANGLE. After releasing a good number of restoration decks, this new and fresh campaign offers some absolutely different cards with a triangular shape. The aesthetic fits the latest Home Run’s creations with that well-known vintage look. This curious shape of the cards and also of the tuck case have required a very curious design of the faces where the symmetry is not double but triple.     Two editions…

EPHEMERID PRECIOUS METAL Playing cards. Letterpress technique at the service of creative beauty

A year ago, an exceptional person (both from a human and creative point of view) appeared on the card design scene.

Now, after fulfilling his first campaign, he has launched a new one: EPHEMERID PRECIOUS METAL. This campaign takes advantage of all…

The engraved hand-colored design style of the two previous decks is also present in this one.     The court cards are decorated with carefully chosen masks (female and male masks for queens and…

BICYCLE LADYBUG cards. Small and lovely bugs are everywhere

A new and fresh deck breaks into the scenario of the cards: BICYCLE LADYBUG. This creation is the result of the collaboration between Will Roya (PlayingCardsDecks.com) with the artist Artur Rajch. The ladybug is undoubtedly one of the most endearing insects, always related to color and childhood. This time, the charming bug has been the inspiration for some amusing cards full of polka dots. The customization is complete in each and every one of the cards in which, obviously, red and…
