i agree with you the deck should be more cohesive overall, more interaction between the artists could have made this deck very nice, although said that each suit has their merits and bad points i think.
Thanks for the links ,the jeu de Marseille looks cool very Picaso. I love the Rixdorfer deck,what you said about the effect of artists collaborating yet still doing their own thing really shows on this deck, Very nice will look out for it
"Forest" Playing Cards designed by Yama Zhang.
I found this deck on Etsy.com, Very expensive at £18. This pack is made up Plastic cards,There is an option for cardstock but you need to message her as she plans to sell only 50 of the card ones.
The postage on these cards is £2 local and £5 international. The cards are cellophane wrapped and comes in a clear plastic box with a ripple effect down the sides. My deck was wrapped in bubblewrap ,then placed in a cardboard box then put in a Jiffy envelope and sent to me.
The number cards is what drew me to this deck,the courts could be better, but nice all the same nothing really bad. The back is one way ,to be honest whichever way you look at it it looks upright to my eyes
Thought i`d show these cards because the young lady who designed the deck is pretty local ,about a half hour drive away. i got a note with the cards saying i was her first customer on etsy
with that price i`m not suprised
i got a couple of cheap waddingtons to even the score out a bit
Thanks for looking at the cards and if you like what you see check out Yama`s shop on Etsy.com
