Odd Bods Playing Cards - magic

When they first appeared in 2012 for the exclusive enjoyment of members of the prestigious Folio Society, the design world fell in love. Odd Bods were playful, charming, elegant, and above all else, a joy for the eyes.

Today they are so much more.

Presenting the new Odd Bods featuring an all-new back design and gold-foil embossed box. Each playing card, hand illustrated by Jonathan Burton, is nothing short of stunning. Every image proves its own quirk and oddity, but is never ostentatious - Odd Bods are the epitome of refined indulgence.

SUMMARY: A playful deck from Art of Play

I love the decks available from Art of Play, and this is one of their more artistic and playful ones.

The Odd Bods deck is exactly that - odd, but artistic! The artist is Jonathan Burton, who was commissioned to design these cards in 2012 by the Folio Society. The deck was later re-released by Art of Play with a new back design. It is definitely one of my favourite decks, because Jonathan Burton has given each character its own unique and quirky personality. The number cards feature pips that show a range of activity and movement. The Joker also clearly shows that one never knows what to expect in this imaginative world! People quickly fell in love with this quirky deck when it first came out, and it's not hard to see why!

The back design is a homage to the classic Bicycle Rider-back design. The card quality is also high, and exactly what you'd expect from a US Playing Card Company deck.

If you're in the market for something creative, unique, unusual, memorable, and hard to find or duplicate, it's hard to think of a better place to look than the decks from Art of Play, and this is a fine example of their quality and creativity.
