Playing cards are ephemeral; they are used, become worn and then just get thrown away. Good quality examples of playing cards featuring the graphics of the past are hard to find in sufficient volume and variety to make an interesting collection. The 300 cards collected here were printed during the 1930s and 1940s. The subjects are as varied as the graphic styles, and for that very reason, all of these cards provide the opportunity to look back through a well-focused window into the inspiring and colorful past of playing card graphic design.
