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: Playing Cards by Lizzie Harrison

Lizzie Harrison is an artist from New Zealand. She was ordered four playing cards for a game of snap. The cards had to be connected with the word Lethiferous which had the definition – Deadly; bringing death or destruction. Lizzie visually interpreted the meaning of the word by creation of the four cards.
