Bicycle 4 Elements

<p> <strong>Bicycle ® 4 Elements</strong></p> <p> <strong>By Yoan TANUJI &amp; Guillaume BIENNÉ</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> You are a player, a collector, a magician or you love fantasy artworks... Come with us into the <strong>Bicycle ® 4 Elements Project.</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><u>The Tuck cases :</u></strong></p> <p> The tuck cases look like miniaturized old books as if each deck could tell you a story.</p> <p> By collecting the 4 <strong>Bicycle ® 4 Elements </strong>you will get a complete small library of 4 tomes.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="4elements" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51832/4elements.jpeg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Boitierpique" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51909/boitierpique.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Bicycle-book-heart-elements" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51910/bicycle-book-heart-elements.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Bicycle-book-diamond-elements" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51912/bicycle-book-diamond-elements.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Bicycle-book-clubs-elements" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51913/bicycle-book-clubs-elements.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><u>The suits :</u></strong></p> <p> We worked very hard on each suit to make them correspond to one element:</p> <p> Spades become symbol of AIr, Hearts represent Fire, Diamonds reflect Water and finally Clubs the Earth.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><u>The crown Characters:</u></strong></p> <p> King and queen become God and Goddess of their own element. They are a powerful and rich character protected by their respective jack who is a fantasy creature.</p> <p> The artwork design on each card is colourful and full of small details which remind us of the Magic of the 4 Elements.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Jacks" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51817/jacks.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="4" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51856/4.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="4" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51849/4.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Queens" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51818/queens.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="3" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51852/3.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="3" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51851/3.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Kings" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51819/kings.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="2" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51857/2.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="2" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51858/2.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><u>The point cards :</u></strong></p> <p> Compared to an ordinary deck, all the aces have a special design full of details and not just the Ace of Spades.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Aces" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51820/aces.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="1" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51859/1.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> To make this deck more original, we broke the classical codes. Each point card has a design which differ from the regular disposition.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="1-to-4" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51862/1-to-4.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="5-to-8" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51866/5-to-8.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="9-10" height="189" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51868/9-10.jpg" width="274"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <u>The Jokers :</u></p> <p> In the <strong>Bicycle ® 4 Elements</strong> the jokers won't be men as they are used in 95% of all playing cards.</p> <p> Here you will find two beautiful women. They are magicians who are twins linking the power of four Elements. </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Joker" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51882/joker.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><u>The Backs:</u></strong></p> <p> Each deck of cards <strong>Bicycle ® 4 Elements </strong>will have a specific back design around with its own element.</p> <p> The 54 playing cards based on the Air theme will have a back side tone inspired by clouds.</p> <p> The backs about the Fire topic will be shaded of red and  orange, the Water deck will have a blue colour, and the Earth deck will be vegetal green colorized.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Dos" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51891/dos.jpg"></p> <p> <strong><em>Air back design.</em></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Dos" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51894/dos.jpg"></p> <p> Fire back design</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="5" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51898/5.jpg"></p> <p> Water back design</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Dos" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51899/dos.jpg"></p> <p> Earth back design</p> <p>  </p> <p> Who are we?</p> <p> We are two professional magicians, card collectors and art lovers.</p> <p> <img alt="70" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51888/70.jpg"></p> <p> <em><strong>YOAN TANUJI</strong></em></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Img_0295__1600x1200_" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51907/IMG_0295__1600x1200_.JPG"></p> <p> <strong><em>GUILLAUME BIENNÉ</em></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Eyvie" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/53148/eyvie.jpg"></p> <p> <strong>Eyvie the Artist drawer</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Cards-collection" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51835/cards-collection.jpg"></p> <p> <strong><em>Our USPCC playing cards collection.</em></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> Our common passion in these domains gave us the opportunity to launch many projects:</p> <p>  </p> <p> - The first magical comic book.</p> <p> <img alt="Sample-2" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51822/sample-2.jpg"></p> <p> <em><strong>COMIC BOOK TEST</strong></em></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Coul-38-fr" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51823/coul-38-FR.jpg"><img alt="Nb-39-usa" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51824/NB-39-USA.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> - With Jean Charles BRIAND, the <strong>Bicycle ® Fast'n'Genious </strong>playing cards </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Set2jeux-fg" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51825/set2jeux-fg.jpg"></p> <p> <img alt="Fastngenious-planche" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/51826/fastngenious-planche.jpg"></p> <p>  </p>
