Card Radar: Odd Bods Playing Cards


A brilliant deck commissioned by publisher The Folio Society. Illustrator Jonathan Burton has designed these custom playing cards in a beautifully nostalgic style. The Odd Bods Playing Cards feature amusing characters, quirky illustrations and playful imagery.

The deck has been designed to have the look of ‘aged’ Victorian lithographs with limited colour and slight printing errors. A brilliant mix of surrealism, twists on the traditional icons and chucklesome juxtapositions in this deck.


Jonathan’s work has gone on to win a silver medal at the Society of Illustration in New York, an award of excellence from Communication Arts and overall professional winner at the AOI illustration awards 2013. The judges commended this commission for its delightfully inventive imagery and highly skilled draftsmanship. The drawings are sophisticated and indicative of an illustrator who is working at the top of his game.

Jonathan is based in Bordeaux, France and you can see more of his work at jonathanburton.net
