The 2016 United Cardists annual deck is NOUVEAU by Karin Yan of Bonafide Playing Cards in Barcelona. The NOUVEAU playing cards are inspired by the historical and mythological heroes and heroines traditionally featured in the French playing cards in the 16th century.
The art style and design are a tribute to the philosophical and artistic trend Art nouveau, promoted and popularized in France. As such, Karin's art nouveau deck was picked to carry on the tradition of having a wide variety of styles and artwork for the UC series.
She is the first female artist for the UC annual deck series, as well. She joins a list of world-renowned deck artists who have contributed to our annual deck series, such as Randy Butterfield, Lotrek and Giovanni Meroni.
[Update] NOUVEAU Playing Cards are now LIVE on Kickstarter!
NOUVEAU will be available on Kickstarter 19th September. Don't miss out!
