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.
