Last year Playing Arts project released a deck of poker playing cards showcasing the illustrations of 55 top illustrators and designers. This year brings a new edition, even more eclectic and powerful, with 55 artists from all over the world involved. Since the beginning of April, one card design appears daily here, following by process insights and short interviews with the artists.

Each card in this deck reflects the vision of its creator and shows his particular style and technique. Freedom to express, variety of methods and instruments, unlimited imagination – that what makes this deck of cards so outstanding. You won’t be able to find two identical illustrations in Playing Arts deck. The only thing they have in common is a colorful backside that was carefully designed by Danny Ivan.
