“De Kloof” Advertising Playing Cards
De Kloof of Bergen op Zoom publish advertising playing cards with original designs by Walter Hagenaars, printed by N.V. Drukkerij van Gebr. Juten (a commercial printing firm who also print matchbox labels), c.1969. The Aces, in the tradition of Dutch scenic Aces, are black silhouettes of famous Dutch castles. The reverse of the cards appears to be designed in such a way that different advertising could be inserted into the decorative frame.
