The Blue Crown: Nautical Playing Cards

Nautical playing cards are produced by The Blue Crown in 2013. The deck was designed by Edo Huang. It is reminiscent of a classic bordered Bee design. Everything about the deck is inspired by the sea. From the rope-like pattern & life preservers integrated into the back design, to the rope border on the court cards, and the ship joker.

The Nautical Deck has been created in Red, Blue and White (limited edition) backs. Playing cards are printed on a thin, flexible, and durable stock that’s manufactured and hand-finished in Shanghai. They have an embossed texture (finish). Tuck cases have custom seals.

The White version of the deck has a different tuck box design and different designs for the Aces. There were printed fewer than 2,000 White decks.

Theory11: Rarebit Playing Cards

Theory11 helped to produce a deck of playing cards printed by USPCC for a vintage, speak-easy type restaurant called The Rarebit. Playing cards were designed by J Fletcher Design (Jay Fletcher). The deck was supposed to be used exclusively in The Rarebit’s lounge. But Theory11 was able to acquire a small quantity for themselves (500 decks) and decided to use it for promotional purposes. To celebrate their sixth birthday, they are “giving away” Rarebit Playing Cards from now until next Friday (September 6th) while supplies last.

Fournier: España Imperial Playing Cards

España Imperial Playing Cards were printed by Fournier in 1983.

Playing cards were designed by Ricardo “Serney” Summers (Discovery and Colonisation of America Playing Cards). Backs were designed by Tapicerías Gancedo.

Modern Spain was originally composed of a number of independent kingdoms and it was not united until 1479 when both Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand ascended to their thrones. Their marriage in 1469 joined together the royal houses of the Kingdom of Castile and the Kingdom of Aragon. Imperial Spain was born from this “Union of the Crowns”. These playing cards are dedicated to the period of the formation and develpment of the Imperial Spain, to main persons who played a historic part in this process.

The deck: 52 playing cards + 1 Joker + 1 ad card. Bridge size. The set consists of two decks with two different backs (different colours).

Collective Art Project (CAP) Deck: Digital Art Masters (Vol.6) #1 Playing Cards

3DTotal_LogoDigital Art Masters is the project originally launched by 3DTotal in 2005. The main idea was to create a catalogue-tutorial dedicated to 2D and 3D artworks. It should showcase the work of some of the finest 2D and 3D artists from around the world collected during a particular year. As a result the project turned into the series of such annual catalogues.

3DTotal itself was founded in 1999 as a simple 3D resource website. Over the last decade the site has evolved into one of the premier CG art websites in the world, offering a variety of training products, an inspirational gallery, a free texture library and hundreds of free tutorials on a variety of subjects.

Digital Art Masters: Volume 6 welcomes another 50 up-and-coming and veteran artists and follows the tradition of taking readers beyond the breathtaking images with detailed breakdowns of the techniques and tricks each artist employed while creating their stunning imagery.

But 3DTotal decided to make something special for this volume of Digital Art Masters. They produced a pack of limited edition playing cards to celebrate this volume (a free addition to the volume). Playing cards have appropriate artworks from Digital Art Masters: Volume 6 on them. So the deck can be counted #1 in the series as 3DTotal went on with supplemental playing cards. Three decks have been produced (for Volume 6, 7, 8). Some of them were available for purchase separately from the books.

This article is dedicated to the deck #1 (Volume 6). The deck: 52 playing cards with different artworks + 1 Joker + 1 information card. Bridge size. Playing cards were printed on quite soft cardboard and have a glossy finish.
