Kickstarter: Bicycle The White Rabbit Playing Cards by Albino Dragon

30 Jun

Inspired by the works of Lewis Carroll, this is the newest Bicycle deck from Albino Dragon (Shane Tyree – the artist, Erik Dahlman – CEO). Printed by the USPCC.

Bicycle-The-White-Rabbit-Playing-Cards

The deck:

  • Unique tuck box with a custom seal;
  • 56 poker-sized cards with custom faces that bring Albino Dragon’s vision of Lewis Carroll’s tales to life;
  • Two custom Jokers;
  • Unique gaff card;
  • A double-backed gaff card;
  • Bicycle Stock and Magic finish;
  • Limited Edition (about 3000 decks).

The unlimited edition of this deck (without the custom seal and with a different card back – probably black & white) was available as a stretch goal for this Albino Dragon’s Kickstarter project: http://kck.st/16HhSlm. That deck hasn’t been printed yet so I think there is a chance to contact Albino Dragon and to find out about availability of these unlimited White Rabbit decks.

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832 – 1898) is better known by his pen name Lewis Carroll. He was an English writer, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon and photographer. His most famous writings are Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass. These are examples of the genre of literary nonsense.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was published in 1865. The illustrations were by Sir John Tenniel (a British illustrator, graphic humorist and political cartoonist whose work was prominent during the second half of England’s 19th century).

It tells of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic which gave the story lasting popularity with adults as well as children.

The deck was printed. So let the journey begin. Welcome to the Rabbit Hole:

The custom seal and the flap of the tuck case can substitute each other in some way.
