Dinosaurs Playing Cards feature 54 original illustrations by genre-defining artist William Stout.
Steven Spielberg, Walt Disney Imagineering, and Ray Bradbury have all sought out William Stout for his singular expertise in bringing dinosaurs to life. Stout’s paleontological drawings have been showcased in museums around the world, including the Smithsonian and the British Museum.
Throughout his legendary career, William Stout has inspired millions with his vivid renderings of mighty pre-historic lizards, and now, for the first time, his artwork is available in the form of luxury playing cards.
A custom back design playfully references the traditional “Rider Back” aesthetic, and 54 different dinosaurs (some peeking out from Diamonds, Hearts, Spades and Clubs) were drawn especially for the faces of these cards. The indices are written in Stout’s own hand.
Printed in rich colour on fine linen paper by the U.S. Playing Card Company, each deck of Dinosaurs comes packaged in a letterpress-printed tuck box adorned with comic book-style art.
