Collective Art Project (CAP) Deck: 52 Aces Playing Cards by Zeixs [2nd Edition]

Zeixs (Germany) is the fusion of online and print media – the portal for interactive Books for Designers. It was founded by the publishing house Feierabend Unique Books and the design agency 12ender in 2007. Zeixs is about all forms and fields of graphic design – from typography, illustration and photography to animation and industrial design. Their concept “Submit your works and we will include them in our books which are distributed all over the world”.

So from time to time they organize artists from different parts of the world for creating a deck of playing cards as a collective art project. The process based on their concept and free competition. Artists submit their artworks to Zeixs and Zeixs selects final artworks among them for their deck. Read how to collaborate with them.

The basic idea was to have each of those cards individually designed by an international designer or illustrator in their distinct style. Then the unique ensemble, in which a variety of illustrations in many styles come together to form an interesting compendium, was to be presented in high-quality packaging and sold in a limited editions.

This is the second “52 Aces” deck of playing cards produced by Zeixs. The deck includes 54 different artworks: 52 playing cards + 2 Jokers. Poker size. Playing cards are available in two editions: Deluxe Edition in a special tin and Light Edition in a foil laminated cardboard box. The declared run of each edition: 999 decks. Playing cards are printed on high quality casino cardboard.

Black Rock Collective Playing Cards Vol. 3

The Black Rock Collective hurried to get this deck out as the end of the world was, according to it’s sources, the year 2012, right??.

This beautiful deck, with artworks of mass destruction lovingly created by 30 artists of the BRC, pays homage to all those various myths, legends and conspiracy theories about how our little blue planet might meet its demise. Each artists, some more than once, has interpreted the end of the world differently. There’s horsemen, meteors, floods, pandemics, and more than one skull in this deck. 

As always, the styles are as varied as the BRC’s nationalities. What IS different about this deck (masterfully named ‘Version 3’) is that every BRC artists started with a completely black background, with the black suits reversed out in white.” ~ BRC

Black Rock Collective Playing Cards Vol. 2

Black Rock Collective Playing Cards Vol. 2 is another beautiful deck, lovingly created by over 30 artists of the Black Rock Collective.

The feel, overall brilliantly printed card size and box design are the same as the first deck. As is the varied styles (and nationalities) of the BRC. What IS different about this deck (ingeniously named ‘Version 2’) is the limited palette of classic Black, White and Red. Almost every mix of these three colours artistically designed for your card playing pleasure.” ~ BRC

Black Rock Collective Playing Cards Vol. 1

This Black Rock Collective Playing Cards Vol. 1 deck was lovingly created by 36 artists of the Black Rock Collective.

A rather crass yet brilliant Australian member had the idea of doing a card deck – a perfect medium to utilise the BRC’s mish mash of styles and techniques. One of the New Zealand members ran with this idea (such is the way down there in the Antipodes) and ‘by crikey’, here it is.

The result of hours of doodling, squabbling, and sanding every card by hand has produced this diverse and beautiful card deck. It feels amazing, and deserves to be fondled as much as possible.” ~ BRC
