41 Decorative Playing Cards

From Feudalistic Poker Decks to Decadent Game Designs

— June 4, 2012 — Art & Design
Nothing beats a good game of poker and what better way to spruce up your hand than with these decorative playing cards. Although card sharks love the nostalgia of classic casino cards, they will appreciate the playful designs on these distinctive decks.

Cards are a universally played pastime and the number of possible games are seemingly endless. Whether you are looking for a geek-inspired ace or a peculiar personified joker, there is likely a deck suited for your personality. Some gaming designers are forgoing plastic and paper all together, creating brilliant bronzed and metallic trumps. Others are maintaining the classic English style design, but putting a pop culture twist with hipster glasses and Alice in Wonderland characters.

If you are looking for a way to liven up your usual gin rummy nights, take a look through these decorative playing cards.
