Stig Lindberg Playing Cards

Here’s my absolute favorite set of playing cards designed by the Swedish ceramic designer, Stig Lindberg. He was not only a ceramist but a glass designer, textile designer, industrial designer, painter, and illustrator.

This set is absolutely amazing. Each suit set (clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades) has a different illustration with a great amount of detail. I really love all his work and specifically fond of this particular set which took me a while to get a hold of. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did.

If you haven’t seen the El Al playing cards designed by Jean David I’d recommend you take a look.

  1. Hi Simon. That’s great that you have a set still sealed. One of my decks is sealed too. Unfortunately, I don’t know how much they are worth.

  2. These are wonderful ! Haven’t seen them before. I love EVERYTHING Stig did. I look forward to exploring your site further. Thanks for archiving design and sharing. Betty
