Perfect Playing Cards for Parrot Lovers

Love playing cards? Love parrots? Webcomic artist Renee LeCompte’s beautiful Parrots of the World playing cards will be funded on March 27, 2014, but it’s not too late to claim a deck for yourself. 
For those unfamiliar with Kickstarter, it’s a site that allows creators to propose their projects to the public. Those interested in making the project a reality can pledge money to the cause. Different pledge amounts correspond to different reward tiers that the creator gives to the “backers” should the project be fully funded. In the case of Parrots of the World, a pledge of $12 is needed to be rewarded a deck of cards. There are also bigger rewards for bigger pledges. These extra rewards range from an uncut sheet of cards up to a full-size portrait of your bird.
