We’ve featured playing cards on the pages of The Coolector with some regularity in the past but it’s been a good long while since we last had some on here so it’s high time to change that and there are few better candidates than these excellent looking, albeit slightly bonkers, Art of Play Into The Weird Playing Cards, which will add more than a touch of vibrancy and eye-catching appeal to any of your poker, blackjack or other card games this Christmas.
Art of Play are billed as at the “most elegant curiosity shop in the world” and they support sustainable production practices in collaboration with non-profit organisations dedicated to protecting the earth so you can feel good about purchasing their wares. The Art of Play Into The Wild Playing Cards ($15) are one of their most visually vibrant decks and we’re big fans of the crazy aesthetics on show with this first class collection and if you’re after a new deck that will turn heads aplenty, look no further.
Weird & Wild
This cracking deck of Into The Weird Playing Cards from Art of Play takes its design inspiration from the brand’s fascination with the strange and unusual and they invite you to open a chamber of secrets and step Into the Weird with this latest custom deck of playing cards that will make any game of poker or blackjack that good deal more entertaining. The deck has been designed in collaboration with Jenny Gebhardt and this unique and striking deck boasts an adventure that unfolds as you shuffle the cards and deal.
The Art of Play Into The Weird Playing Cards are quite unlike any deck you’re likely to have seen before and you can follow along or create your own story with the 54 unique illustrations that are printed on each card within the deck. They are packaged inside a matching letterpress-printed tuck box which adds a tangible sense of excellence to this product and will ensure your cards stay in good condition and always ready when you need them.
Limited to just 5000 decks, this Into The Weird Collection of playing cards from Art of Play won’t be hanging around for long because it is undoubtedly one of the coolest looking decks we’ve seen in a while here at Coolector HQ and will be sure to appeal to card art aficionados out there. Each deck is made in the United States and printed by the U.S. Playing Card Co so the quality is there to see.
We love playing card artwork here at The Coolector and we’re always finding ourselves gravitating towards the unusual in this regard. The fantastic artwork of Jenny Gebhardt is what really brings this deck to life and with each suit and card treated to some wonderfully eye-catching illustrations, it’s hard not to be won over by this fun and visually unusual deck of playing cards.
When the time comes to update your current deck, you’ll be hard pressed to find a cooler more vibrant deck than this Art of Play Into The Weird Deck and the $15 price tag is a small one to pay for a deck this eye-catching. With only 5000 decks being made available to purchase, it’s a good idea to secure yours now if you’ve liked what you’ve seen to make sure you don’t miss out.
