Antique Playing Card Designs

This striking treasury of playing cards, reproduced from designs used on cards between the fourteenth and early-twentieth centuries, includes nearly 500 images from a rare French volume. The elegant illustrations, approximately half of which are in full color, graced both European regular and tarot card decks and display such motifs as stylized versions of king, queen, and other face cards; musical instruments; fantasy figures; and wild fowl. For personal use.
