Nouveau BIJOUX Playing Cards is a redux version of NOUVEAU Playing Cards (UC 2016 Deck).
Nouveau BIJOUX is a custom deck of playing cards (poker size) designed by Karin Yan from Bona fide Playing Cards and manufactured by Expert Playing Card Company.
Nouveau BIJOUX stays true to the original idea behind the NOUVEAU Playing Cards: A design inspired by the historical and mythological heroes and heroines traditionally featured in the French playing cards since the 16th century. The art style and design pay tribute to the philosophical and artistic trend Art nouveau.
BIJOUX adds an extra touch to this inspiration with a design that reminds us of the intricate nouveau jewelry. With a redesigned tuck, back, aces, pips and significant changes on the courts, BIJOUX brings the jewelry feel with each and every card.

Like the original deck, BIJOUX is inspired in the historical and mythological characters some believe were used for the creation of the first decks in Rouen during the 16th century. As for the art style, it was inspired by Art Nouveau jewelry. Art Nouveau is a style of decorative art, architecture and design promoted and popularized in Paris in the late 19th century and characterized by intricate linear designs and flowing curves based on natural forms.

Risks and challenges
Like my previous project, Nouveau BIJOUX will also be printed by Expert Playing Card Company. All the artwork will be submitted once the campaign is over and if everything goes smoothly, all backers should receive the decks and add ons on time. However there can always be unforseen situations and delays, either during the printing or the delivery process. Taking that into account and based on the previous experience with NOUVEAU UC2016 deck, we've left a generous amount of time to ensure the production and delivery of all items without delay.
Note: the renderings show the best true colors intended, but slight variances between the RGB (computer pictures) and CYMK (printing process used for playing cards) may occur. The artwork may be subjected to slight changes during and after the campaign to improve the deck, in which case all backers will be notifiedLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
