The Ace of Clubs (Phoenix of Clubs) designed by the Canadian artist Catherine Maguire (ImperialWhiteDragon). Indices and pips need improvement. Some “clubs” can be incorporated into the picture. But her style is quite interesting, especially for aces.

Custom52.com is a Canadian site representing an online design community using playing cards as the canvas. People use compact format of playing cards to showcase many artworks in one deck which is still convenient and functional. All artworks featured on the cards are entered by individual artists. The artwork is voted on and chosen by members of the community (the membership is free). Each deck of cards is referred to as a Cycle. The Cycle closes when enough designs are submitted. After that the public vote begins and the chosen design for each playing card goes to print.
This post is dedicated to the second deck produced by Custom52.com in 2008 – Cycle II Deck.
The deck: 52 different playing cards + 2 different Jokers + Information card. Bridge size. Playing cards are printed on quite soft cardboard and have a glossy finish (as well as the tuck case).
