Playing Card Art: Alice and Wonderland Playing Cards by Caroline Halliwell

I have to think that Alice in Wonderland is the most popular theme for custom playing cards. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, primarily known as Lewis Carroll, predestined this with his choice of some of the main characters for the book.

It’s amazing how many different interpretations can invent people. Playing cards can absorb all of them. Unfortunately, not all of them can be produced. Below you can acquaint yourself with familiar characters designed by the British artist, Caroline Halliwell. With the exception of the Queen of Hearts, she sees them as agreeable personalities. The Queen of Hearts is always so displeased. It’s because she can’t understand that radical actions do not guarantee better mood.

Bēhance: Alice in Wonderland Playing Cards by Adam Mordecai

These a little bit crazy but symmetrical playing cards were designed by the American artist, Adam Mordecai, and are dedicated to Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. This theme is quite popular for playing cards. These are a working project, so they can be produced some day… in colour.

Fournier: Alice in Wonderland Playing Cards

These playing cards were printed by Fournier (Spain) in 2010. They are dedicated to Burton’s filming of the famous Carroll’s novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (pseudonym Lewis Carroll) was an English author who wrote the novel in 1865. Playing cards are among heroes of this novel. That is why it became quite popular for designing different custom decks (Nicole’s Alice in Wonderland deck, Bicycle The White Rabbit deck).

Timothy Walter “Tim” Burton is an American film director, film producer, artist, writer and animator. He has his own specific style of horror and fantasy movies. As a rule his films are full of dark, gothic, macabre and quirky elements. So Tim’s Alice in Wonderland (2010) happened to be a quite unique interpretation of the novel supported by Walt Disney Pictures and some other companies.

The deck: 52 different playing cards + 3 Jokers + 1 ad card. Poker size. Playing cards are printed on casino cardboard and have a smooth finish. The box has Fournier’s traditional design.

Alice in Wonderland Playing Cards by Nicole Jackson

“This charming deck of playing cards is “Alice in Wonderland” themed and features illustrations drawn by John Teniel from “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass” by Lewis Carroll. Each illustration was then digitally painted by me and placed on lovely coffee backgrounds (also painted by me). Each letter/number features a different image from the books. (15 different images total including the back of the cards.) The symbols for the club, spade, heart and diamond were designed by me.

Each deck is professionally printed, contains 54 cards (A-K plus two jokers) and comes in a clear plastic box. The cards are hard to crease industry quality bendable card, same as what casinos use.

I try my best to match the colors shown on the screen to the actual colors of the cards but because every screen is different the colors shown may vary slightly from the actual colors of the cards.” ~ Nicole Jackson
