Global Unrest Playing Cards by RJ Tomlinson

Earlier in 2013 RJ Tomlinson successfully funded the Civil Unrest playing cards, a deck of cards inspired by the American Civil War. This time RJ Tomlinson has launched a new Kickstarter project to raise funds for the manufacturing and distribution of Global Unrest, a limited edition deck of playing cards based on World War II.

Global Unrest uses a traditional playing card style mixed with a WWII military twist. This deck features two tuck boxes, an Allied version which uses a 1940s style and an Axis version which uses a war torn grunge style. The cards when laid out will form a map of the world. The court cards will show various styles of military dress from the WWII era.

In all, the Unrest Series will feature Civil Unrest about the American Civil War, Global Unrest about World War II and Colonial Unrest about the American War of Independence.

Tomlinson, who studied graphic design at the Pennsylvania College of Technology in Williamsport, PA, wanted to create a project that would bring attention to remembering those who lived during World War II.
