DeviantART: Pin-Up Playing Cards by Jeff Chapman

These are Pin-Up playing card Queens created by an American artist, Jeff Chapman (Jeffach). He is a big admirer of women proceeding from his artworks. The queens happened to be vivid with substantial tattoos. Bathroom is quite intimate place to meet them. But don’t be sure that you have been able to catch these ladies unawares :) … and the Queen of Diamonds is such a queen of diamonds – she doesn’t part with her diamonds even in her shower.

Kickstarter Relaunch: Nouveau Playing Cards by Bona Fide Playing Cards

Bicycle Nouveau Playing Cards was the first playing card project by Bona Fide Playing Cards on Kickstarter. They decided to print it with the United States Playing Card Company (USPCC). Unfortunately, people misappreciated this interesting deck, and it wasn’t funded. Bona Fide Playing Cards has taken into account some organizational and financial peculiarities of the Kickstarter playing card campaigns and restarted it… luckily without detriment to art and meaning content of this nice deck (only Eleanor of Aquitaine substituted Celtic Queen, Boudica – the Queen of Clubs).

Nouveau decks are inspired by the historical and mythological heroes and heroines traditionally featured in the French playing cards since the 16th century. As for the art style and design, Bona Fide Playing Cards wanted to pay tribute to the philosophical and artistic trend Art Nouveau, promoted and popularized in France and contemporary to the birth of the first Bicycle Playing Cards in the late 19th century. There will be two limited (this is about the first run) editions of the playing cards: Nouveau and Nouveau Turquoise Playing Cards

The decks are planned to be printed by the Expert Playing Card Company (EPCC).

Kickstarter: Bicycle the Lumberjacks 2nd Ed. Playing Cards by Vadim Smolenskiy

Vadim Smolenskiy designed his second version of Lumberjacks deck – Bicycle the Lumberjacks Playing Cards 2nd Ed. The first edition of Bicycle the Lumberjacks Playing Cards was successfully funded and produced in 2013. This time playing cards will be full of colours. This word comes from a bygone era (before 1945 in the United States).  It names workers in the logging industry who perform the initial harvesting and transport of trees for ultimate processing into forest products.

The deck is planned to be printed by the United States Playing Card Company (USPCC).
