This new set of Blue Blood Playing cards by Peter Dunham and Linnea Gits from the Uusi design studio pays tribute to the ancient history of card games that goes all the way back to the Chang Dynasty. The classic 52-card poker deck is composed of unique, hand-drawn characters each with their own authentic personality and story.

The Diamonds are known for their court politics and shrewd business dealings while the Clubs are known troublemakers, notorious for their art of deception. The face cards of each suit exudes characteristics that outline the history and characteristics of that particular suite. The Jacks are all assassins, the Kings are cunning and pensive and the Queens are exquisite creatures of beauty and finesse.
