This Listing is for 1 Deck of Bicycle No. 17 Playing Cards

" No.17 Playing Cards " is a custom designed deck of playing cards (poker size), printed by United States Playing Card Company with the Bicycle® branding.

Designed by Lorenzo, who lives and work in Stockholm, Sweden. He design custom playing cards and Stockholm17 is the name used for projects.

Designing and illustrating playing cards are his passion.

This is his 3 rd deck of custom playing cards, feel free to take a look at Requiem Playing Cards and Heretic Playing Cards

There is no specific theme in this deck, it´s quite eclectic and he lets his fantasy run when illustrating the courts.

The diamonds have clearly an Egyptian resemblance, but overall they belong to a parallel world.

There is a thing that connects all the court cards: the text circling the background is a part of the Aeneid, a Latin epic poem written by Virgil between 29 and 19 BC, that tells the legendary story of Aeneas, a Trojan who traveled to Italy, where he became the ancestor of the Romans.
