The original AVES Playing Cards were a huge hit. Illustrated by the incredible artist Karina Eibatova, the original AVES were printed and sold out.
These custom playing cards are printed by USPCC, the same company who prints the Bicycle playing cards that you've played with for years.
The name for this deck, "AVES" comes from the proper scientific classification for birds. "AVES" is also Latin and Spanish for "Birds." These fine art playing cards were hand drawn by a world-class artist before being turned into digital art prior to being transformed into gorgeous playing cards, just for you.
These new AVES cards have all of the intricate art featured on the original card faces, but with a new back and tuck case. The new card back takes advantage of space to make the colored feathers pop. Instead of feathers covering each millimeter of the card back, there is now more breathing room. It was a close decision on whether to extend the feathers all the way to the corners on the original back, and after many requests, this new edition takes the other approach. It's a luxurious card back that you'll love to have and share with others.
The new Bicycle tuck case removes the feathered spade from the front of the box and is replaced with the elaborate and sophisticated Owl.
