Bēhance: “Indianie” (Indian) Playing Cards by Katarzyna Fus

Hardly these playing cards can be practical in their current form, but I couldn’t omit them. Created by a Polish artist, Katarzyna Fus, these are really cute pieces of art devoted to Indian culture. I really like her style for this prototype deck. Court cards represent people. Totem (a spirit being, sacred object, or symbol that serve as an emblem of a group of people) is in the aces. Number cards and the back design contain imitation of some petroglyphs (arrows and horses). Unfortunately, all number cards have only different appropriate quantity of arrows in their pictures.

Playing cards haven’t been produced. I think they will become more functional with white frameworks around the coloured pictures. Letters and numbers of cards can be also moved outside the pictures. Horses are better to use for number cards instead of backs. Tomahawks (a type of axe from North America) and calumets (a ceremonial smoking pipe used by some indigenous American nations) can vary pictures of number cards of different suits. Different totems for aces will be also nice.

Playing Card Art: Native Playing Cards by Sean Voegeli

An American Bachelor of Science in Graphic Design (Cum Laude from California State University, Sacramento), Sean Voegeli, designed playing card artwork devoted to the Native American culture. He combined patterns found in it with some modern design and illustration. Some queens have very stylish decollates 🙂
