playing with a full deck...

352800_Detail

ac is a big poker player and while i try to play along i'm probably more interested in what the cards look like than the actual game (though i've been known to play a few rounds at hollywood poker when i'm really bored). a d*s reader emailed to ask for some advice with cool looking cards and while i searched these two were among my favorites: preppy cards from kate spade ($19.95) and these limited-run collage-style cards at wexner books ($13.45). my hunt continues so if you have any great card suggestions feel free to drop them below- there seems to be a niche to fill for well-designed cards.

hmmm...timely post...if anyone is in the San Francisco Bay Area, I noticed that the Center for the Book is having a special event this Friday - all about playing cards and artists will be selling letterpress sets and other limited edition cards.

Just ordered the deck of cards from gigposters.com. Anticipiating getting each of the unique artists - 56 poster designs in all - in the mail any day now!

They have two different sets, and both are awesome. The card designed by Sara of Cricketpress comes as a larger print, and I ended up ordering it I loved it so much.

Beautiful cards... but more exciting to me: you cited the Wexner Bookstore... at the Wexner Center for the Arts, in Columbus, Ohio!! YAY Columbus! We're finally cool enough to get on d*s!

I just bought a Caspari bridge set with a lattice pattern as a gift -- Caspari has some dreadful patterns, but also some chic ones, like the lattice, the butterflies, and the stripe. The Paris and paisley ones are fun.

And they're ridiculously pricey, but both Hermes and Tiffanys have elegant cards.

I've seen a new style of playing cards - while it is not technically style/art design, it is a totally different look.

Quite different, and they do have a slick design!
