Kickstarter: Sawdust: Circus Playing Card by Emmanuel Jose



Acrobats, animals, death-defying stunts, dancers and clowns makes an appearance on Sawdust, the third deck of playing cards by paper-cutting maestro, Emmanuel Jose. The deck features the beautiful, strange world and a celebration of the people who make the circus their lives.

Emmanuel is well known for his transformation decks (Clipped Wings and Curator Playing Cards), which incorporate the suits into a design. Like its predecessors, Sawdust is a fully custom transformation deck featuring 55 unique works of art, all entirely cut by hand.


Emmanuel use just scissors and an X-acto knife to cut paper and create the images. Here's a look at the paper cutting technique for Sawdust's Six of Hearts:





Sawdust is now available on Kickstarter and will be printed by the USPCC with air-cushion magic finish. Pledge starts from $11 and there are multiple add-ons available such as uncut sheets, art prints, and art book.

  1. Please check out the Kickstarter and bring this charming deck into existence. Emmanuel Jose is a genius. For me, this is his best work yet! The video that displays the whole deck is not to be missed. Go take a gander, you will not be disappointed.
