William Stout Dinosaur Playing Cards!

William Stout wasn’t just sitting around during COVID — he illustrated an entire deck of playing cards with a dinosaur theme for Art of Play. 54 brand new, never-before-seen dinosaur images (52 card images plus 2 different Joker cards).

Bill also designed the stunning Letter Press packaging (see above) and the card backs, a stylistic nod to the famous Bicycle deck card back (see below).

You can find them on this site’s shop. Go to Store>William Stout Bazaar>Uncategorized.

Each deck is just $30 + $5 shipping (save on multiple deck shipping — still just five bucks no matter how many you buy). If you want Bill to sign the package, he will break the cellophane seal and sign your deck box at no extra charge.

  1. hello William, my name is Colin Monteath from New Zealand , a polar & mountain photographer . I am currently writing a Portrait of Mt Erebus…Sarah Krall is helping me with a chronology/Appendix…so your name came up. There will be a chapter on The Art of Erebus so wondering if you did any paintings that specifically feature Erebus as a volcano…perhaps with dragons.? Many thanks – Colin

  2. I couldn’t make the convention but the playing cards are gorgeous. I like how you stay busy. I hope ComicCon was fun.


  3. Howdy Mr. Stout,

    Yes, the T-Rex would be the ace of spades! Beautiful work on these. God bless you and yours.
    Your friend, Aaron

  4. Hi Colin!
    Your name is so familiar. I’m guessing I have some of your articles and/or books in my Antarctica book collection.

    I did a few field studies of Erebus (and climbed it, too). E-mail me ( your e-mail address and I’ll send you the images. I brought back some rare Kenyite crystals I acquired at the top of Erebus (it’s allowed). The only other place they are found is on top of Mount Kilimanjaro (which I climbed in 1982). The ice caves around the rim of the volcano were absolutely incredible and magical.

  5. Oops…it could be interpreted that the ice caves were on Kilimanjaro. They were at the top of Erebus.

  6. I ordered my cards as soon as I saw this post, then worried that they might not make it to my house. I’m an American living in Slovakia, and at one point in time it was illegal to import playing cards from the US. I don’t know why. Maybe a holdover law from Soviet days? Anyway, I was ready to get a message from the Slovak post office that my package had been confiscated, but to my delight, they arrived at my house in one piece. (Slovak post had obviously opened the package to inspect the contents—there was their tell-tale re-taping on one side of the package—but I guess they had no problems with what they found inside.)

    Anyway, the cards (and box) are gorgeous. “Fest diky” as they say here—many thanks!

  7. Colin! E-mail me. I just re-read your comment. I have a couple of plein air pastel landscapes of Mount Erebus.
