“The Queen of Diamonds depicts Agnes Sorel, mistress to Charles VII. Agnes Sorel was the first woman to introduce the fashion for wearing diamonds. (Diamonds were typically only worn by men until Miss Sorel decided she wanted some bling around her neck).These playing cards were inspired by the The Visconti Tarot (also know at the Cary-Yale deck), one of the oldest set of playing cards in existence.” ~ Carlyn Beccia

Tiki Series of digital art prints by Michael L. Marland. Digitally-colored drawings using a combination of tiki images and playing card art.
Tiki are large wood and stone carvings which have humanoid forms and take special place in Central Eastern Polynesian cultures of the Pacific Ocean. This term is also used in Māori mythology. In accordance with this mythology Tiki was the first man created by either Tūmatauenga or Tāne.
This playful, colourful and rather wonderful series of cards designed by Dan Adams are shaped like playing cards and they feature a bunch of rather funny and talented characters: there is an elephant, a seal, a dog, a monkey and a lion. And there is also something more sweet and lovable in the winning ace of hearts!
The full series of designs is now available at twenty21 (these are only greeting cards!)
