The World Of Playing Cards

Playing cards have been with us since the 14th century, when they first became a part of popular culture. Over the centuries packs of cards, in all shapes and sizes, have been used for games, gambling, education, conjuring, advertising, fortune telling, political messages or the portrayal of national or ethnic identity.

Their popularity is undoubtedy due to the imaginative artwork and graphic design which is sometimes overlooked, and the 'then & now' of how things have changed.
