Harold Apples - Playing Cards

Design nerds - pay alert! It doesn't get much better than this! This set of playing cards was designed by Harold Apples, an art director for Lonely Planet by day and a freelance illustrator by night. With attention to detail like you've never seen before, these letterpress cards feature foiling, embossing and spot colours galore. Drawing inspiration from the symbology of older playing card decks, with a modern twist, these cards are a design object you've got to have in your life.

And if you want to buy yourself a set of these cars, they can be bought here for under ten dollars!
