52Aces is a deck of playing cards with a difference.
The premise of 52Aces was to have a standard deck of playing cards with each card revived by an international designer or illustrator in their own signature style. The broad mix of styles would form an interesting piece of limited edition artwork or the fanciest set of playing cards money can buy. We think it's both.
Limited to 999 sets - 52Aces contains work from a global star line up of illustrators and artists including Pete Fowler, Greg “Craola” Simkins and RekaOne to name but a few.
The thing that excites us the most about this is project is that grabbing a limited piece of work from some of the artists involved is not the easiest (or most affordable) task in the world, but getting 52 individual shots of challenging, visual pleasure in one go is almost too good to miss.

Whilst you may have a card of a similar suit or number in this pack - they certainly won't look the same!
So if you have been thinking about starting to collect art or illustration - you have a chance of bagging 52 artworks in one go! Talk about a starter kit...
Limited edition two is available here.
