Playing Type

The deck of 52 French playing cards is the most common deck used today. It includes thirteen ranks of each of the four French suits, clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades, with reversible "court" or face cards. Some designs have done away with reversible face cards, but I kept them anyway. Unlike classic decks, where the numeral ones get an appropriate number of dots and the flashy illustrations are reserved for the higher ranking cards, I designed numbers and letters as illustrations for each card based on it's suite. Each suite get's it's own visual style based on the geometry of the suite's icon.
