NoMad Playing Cards were produced in collaboration with The NoMad Hotel in New York City. In the 19th century, The NoMad District of New York was the meeting place of the era’s elite - from Oscar Wilde to Charles Dickens, Mark Twain to Nikola Tesla.
Designed by Chad Micahel, our vision was to create a deck of cards that would serve as a monument to The NoMad. The result is a timeless blend of beauty and elegance. The back design, when rotated laterally, forms the shape of an eye - a gentle nod to the Latin phrase at the top and bottom of each card: "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." Even the interior of the box has a pattern branded with The NoMad logo.
