Kickstarter Digest #3: New Playing Card Projects Waiting for Your Support

New playing card projects are popping up on Kickstarter regularly. RJ Tomlinson (Titanic Playing Cards, Gettysburg Civil Unrest Playing Cards, etc.) presents Pompeii Playing Cards. His custom poker playing cards are inspired by the novel, The Last Days of Pompeii, written by Edward Bulwer-Lytton in 1834. Mr. Bulwer-Lytton was an English novelist, poet, playwright, and politician. He devoted his novel to the tragedy of the city of Pompeii, the ancient Roman town-city near modern Naples, Italy. It was destroyed and buried under ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.

See the playing card project on the “Kickstarter Projects” page.

Bēhance: The Queen of Hearts by Kerri-Jane Mitchell

Kerri-Jane Mitchell, an artist from Cape Town (South Africa), designed the Queen of Hearts as some symbiosis of two epochs in the life of this lady. Different ages, different moods – different dresses, different friends 🙂

Playing Card Art: Playing Cards by David Kapah

An Israeli artist, David Kapah, designed this set of playing card artworks devoted to fantasy worlds. Some demons, servants of the Death, ghosts, and cursed warriors were prisoned in one deck of playing cards. A sinister company, but interesting art. Number cards are the worst part of this pack. The back design could be also better. But aces are really stylish.

Bēhance: Dragon Playing Cards by Pedro Felipe Giraldo Mejia

Pedro Felipe Giraldo Mejia is a Colombian artist. He decided to create playing card artworks devoted to different incarnations of dragons. These cards look like artworks affected by different cultures because they have different stylistics. Dragons are symbolic not only in Eastern mythology. Quite often mythographers mark out two main cultural traditions of dragons: the European dragon, and the Eastern dragon. The first one comes from European folk traditions based on Greek and Middle Eastern mythologies. The second one is a composite creature combining different dragons from East Asia countries (Chinese dragon, Japanese dragon, and other dragons from appropriate countries which have their own peculiarities). So, the artworks look like a collection of both “draconian” cultural traditions.
