TACOMA — They’re cool, they’re made by local artists, and you can play with them! They’re Tacoma Playing Cards. They were created as a art exhibit that you can hold in your hand.
The cards serve as a souvenir, artisan gift, and positive representation of the city and Tacoma artists. The poker-grade deck of cards showcases locations and legends of Tacoma that are iconic, representative, and weird. They tell Tacoma’s unique story. Some were designed and hand-lettered by Chandler O’Leary. 13 other local artists illustrated various Tacoma locations on other cards.
This deck is blue, but a second deck, the Red Deck, is in the works with new artists and new Tacoma locations, icons and stories.
