london-based studio hat trick design has created their own set of playing cards using only typographical elements. the deck of cards features the usual 52 cards and 4 suits each reinterpreted using letters and numbers. each card is completely different representing the suit in a different way each time using the number of the card. so the seven of hearts is represents using the number 7 arranged in a heart motif, while the queen of spades is represented using only the letter q arranged in a spade motif. you can see the full deck in the video below and you can purchase the deck through their online shop.

    Tiger says:
  • Yes, I agree with the fact that those cards are great looking but not really usable on [url=http://www.un-poker-gratuit.fr]poker[/url] games, since it’s hard to recognize them quickly 🙂
