First Look: AVES (Second Edition) Playing Cards by LUX Playing Cards



The AVES (Second Edition) Playing Cards are now LIVE on Kickstarter!

Inspired by birds from all over the world, artist Karina Eibatova and LUX Playing Cards meticulously designed the gorgeous AVES Playing Cards. The original AVES was launched on Kickstarter back in 2014 and successfully raised over $23k. After more than 12 months, LUX Playing Cards have just announced a new version of AVES after the first sold out.


Like the original, each individual cards is a work of art by itself and face cards are amazingly detailed and meticulously illustrated by hand. The new version has been remodeled with a new card back as well as tuck cases. According to Bryan Sloan from LUX Playing Cards,
The card back retains its individuality and gives more space to make the main features and colors pop off of the cards. I've had requests for this card back when I showed both versions. Also, the tuck cases are remade, with both a Bicycle branded tuck and an unbranded tuck, called "Perspective." 
We asked Bryan to tell us more about the Perspective deck,
The Perspective deck tells two stories. I was able to do this by exacting the illustrations onto the tuck. From the front, top, and left of the tuck case, you'll see the black background and the white swan. By turning the deck opposite, you'll see the white background and the black swan from the back, right, and bottom of the tuck case. I don't know of any other cards that employ this technique in the design of the tuck.
