Online magazine Digital Abstracts has unveiled their latest project called Playing Arts. Starting out as a Kickstarter campaign, Digital Abstracts was able to meet their funding goal and now have this gorgeous deck of playing cards available for pre-order.

Playing Arts is a 54 card deck where every card is accompanied with incredible art, from the lowly two of clubs all the way to the ace of spades and of course those dastardly jokers. If that wasn’t awesome enough, every card is drawn by a completely different artist. Digital Abstracts managed to get 54 of the world’s best designers, painters and illustrators to collaborate with them on this project and encouraged the artists to design each card according to their own unique style.

I always wondered why only face cards got to have art on them; it appears Digital Abstracts was thinking the same thing.
