Cambridge Playing Cards

Cambridge playing cards deck

Almost a year ago Simon Wincott approached me with an interesting concept, to use my Cambridge photographs on a pack of high quality playing cards. 54 different images across the deck. This was an interesting and unique project and I was keen to be involved.

After a number of prototypes to hone both the colours and design we settled on a supplier who could produce a really nice quality pack of cards. The cards not only felt nice in your hand, but the colours really popped in the photographs.

The first few stockists have been signed up and include: City Hotel, Heffers, the Round Church and the Holiday Inn. More to be added soon.

Simon who heads up British Culture Cards plans to roll out a series of themed packs including Great Cities, Great Counties, Great Estates & Great Regions. The Cambridge pack was set to be the first. I'm also hoping to be featured in a Lake District set soon so watch this space!

Why not buy a pack for Christmas or as a great long lasting souvenir of Cambridge. Heffers are selling the cards for £5.99 per pack.
