This beautiful deck of typographic playing cards celebrates the notion that, similar to the Zodiac, we each have a card assigned to us based on the date of our birth. The Black Book of Cards is a full deck of 54 where each card has a different distinct typographic design suggesting personality traits and characteristics.
The Black Book Of Cards – Vol. 1 is a deck of playing cards that is timeless, modern, and unique to each one of us. Each card is its own custom piece of artwork with a meticulous typographic design focusing on form, pattern and type.
Printed by the United Sates Playing Card Company on premium Casino Quality Bee® card stock, the cards are enriched with a sophisticated back design representing a silk moiré book cloth. Each card is not only extremely unique but it’s the start a movement where each card is collectible, distinct to each one of us, and a piece of artwork in its own right.
Examples of some of the face cards and suits:
The Black Book Collection comes encased in a lavish soft touch tuck box embossed with an intricate leather like texture to give the look and feeling of a leather bound book.
