La Española Classic

Founded 1945

‘La Española Classic’ by Gráfica 2001

La Española Classic’ is Gráfica 2001's traditional ‘La Española’ Spanish-suited pack based on the designs published by Igor Domicelj and Vigor S.R.L in the 1940s and 50s, which were in turn copied from ‘Naipes El Heraldo’ by Segundo de Olea. It is produced in four sizes (standard, round, pocket and small). The original logo can be seen on the Fours of Cups and Coins and the two Jokers. Several alternative Jokers have been published and in these cases the logos are omitted so packs appear to be completely anonymous. An alternative version named ‘Barcelonesa’ is also produced (see below). This style of pack is found with advertising backs and also as the basis of special editions with customised artwork (see example →)
