Here you can see the decks that are stored in the collection of the Siberian Museum of playing cards. We will pay special attention to modern decks of Russia. Since modern decks are produced, sometimes very small editions and remain unknown to a wide range.
Gradually, the site will become a kind of catalog in which it will be possible to easily find the products of various publishing houses, the work of certain artists, or even individual characters on postcards. If you type the word Snow Maiden in a search engine, you will see all the postcards on which there is a Snow Maiden, if you are interested in images of Santa Claus, then you can only see such postcards.
We appeal to the publishers of playing cards, to the companies that have released their promotional decks with a request to report their deck. We, with pleasure, will get it for the collection of our museum.
Postcard publishers, if you want your publisher's products to be reflected most fully - send them to us!
We also appeal to artists and designers, who in their work dealt with the theme of playing cards. We will post your work on the site, help to publish a deck.
In the collection of our museum more than 4,000 decks, all of them gradually appear on the site. How many cards - not even considered. Postcards will be mainly greeting with characters. An exception will be made only to some artists whose work is most in demand among collectors.
