Typography Playing Cards with 52 Typefaces: Hat-Trick Design

These wonderful type-based cards come to us from Jim Sutherland of Hat-Trick Design in London. Each card features a differenet typeface (yes, that's 52 faces), and though combining that many typefaces would normally be the stuff of design taboo, it makes for a beautiful card deck and poster design.

He also used the respective numbers and letters on each card to cleverly form and illustrate the suit (diamond, heart, club, spade).

The Hat-Trick Shop is selling the deck in a limited edition of 500.
