Ben Jones is the man behind Elephant Playing Cards, a small publishing company which has produced numerous popular decks of playing cards, including the innovative Prism series (link) and the creative Pipmen series (link), which includes a remarkable polyptych (link).

Currently Elephant Playing Cards is launching their newest deck on Kickstarter - which is appropriately called Elephant Playing Cards, and indeed features elephants as the central motif on the artwork throughout the deck. This branded deck of cards is intended to be a flagship for the Elephant Playing Cards (EPC) brand.


While Ben's Prism decks and Pipmen decks are arguably his most innovative and creative, he's previously also produced the Medieval Playing Cards by collaborating with Anomaly World Studio's Egor Klyuchnyk. This collaboration is also responsible for this new project, with Egor Klyuchnyk being the designer.

Shown here is the Desert deck:


The tuck boxes feature embossing plus foil, so it is immediately evident that these decks are going to be another quality product, and a worthy bearer and ambassador of the EPC name!


While the number cards have a standard look that is very functional, the court cards are entirely customized, with the colour scheme of the Desert deck shown here featuring warm pinks and yellows.


Besides the Desert deck pictured above, there's also a Tundra deck planned.


In contrast to the warmth of the Desert deck, the icy blues and purples of the Tundra deck reflect a frosty wasteland landscape.


All the customized and over-sized Aces have elements that incorporate the designs of elephant heads, while the Jokers also feature elephants.

If you're interested in supporting this, or to see more images and find out more information, head to the Elephant Playing Cards Kickstarter project.
