The Gambler

Of course, there are Steampunk cards! For fortune telling, Bezique and magic tricks...


These little delights are made by Bicycle, famous American card-makers since 
1885 and the card of choice of magicians and card-sharps.

Are we still sure Steampunk isn't going mainstream?

  1. Mainstream or no, they're pretty dang cool - or at least HE makes them so! ;o) Robin

  2. What if steampunk were to lose its elegance and sophistication due to over-publicizing? It's a question I often ask myself.
    But perhaps elegance needn't die out.
    It may be we can sustain it along with the finer quality goods the steampunk arts community is famous for.
    I guess we'll have to hang on for the ride!
    Interesting feature.

  3. Going mainstream...possibly but then it will die out and the existing culture will continue on as before. Cood cards:)

  4. I went and ordered a deck.. I just couldn't resist when I saw it here on your blog. I think steampunk is safe from going mainstream here in Nebraska.I have yet to meet anyone who knows what I'm talking about when I say I make steampunk jewelry.Try to describe steampunk to a farmer sometime!:o)
