Bēhance: Red Hot Chili Peppers Playing Cards by Gurleen Kaur

Red Hot Chili Peppers playing cards (project) designed by the Indian artist Gurleen Kaur. There are illustrations based on famous songs by the band Red Hot Chili Peppers on these playing cards.

Red Hot Chili Peppers (also commonly known as the “Chili Peppers” or abbreviated as RHCP) are an American rock band formed in 1983. The group’s musical style primarily consists of rock with an emphasis on funk, as well as elements from other genres such as punk rock and psychedelic rock.

Each number card or court card of all four suits has almost the same picture. Pictures of “black” suits have black backgrounds and pictures of “red” suits have red backgrounds.

Bicycle Samurai Playing Cards by CC Éditions & Marchand de Trucs

Bicycle Samurai Playing Cards [First Edition] are the heroes of this blog today. I was able to find them on JP Playing Cards site (find a 10% discount below). This deck is dedicated to defenders of persons in the upper ranks of Japan society – the Samurai (the middle and upper echelons of the warrior class).

Playing cards were produced by the French company CC Éditions & Marchand de Trucs and printed by USPCC in 2011.  The deck was available on a special site. Now it is sold out and can be found only on the secondary market.

Playing cards were designed by the English artist Sam Hayles (DOSE Productions). Readers of this blog should know him as this is the fourth his design featured on pages of the blog. This deck was designed for magic practice. So it has a minimum of customization (a custom tuck case, the Ace of Spades, Jokers and backs).

The deck: 52 playing cards + 3 Jokers (two of them are identical) + 1 blank card. Poker size. All court cards and number cards are Bicycle standard cards. Playing cards were printed on Bicycle Stock and have Air-Cushion Finish.

the pictures of the tuck case are clickable
