Karl Gerich No.20: Rouennais A

Karl Gerich No.20: ‘Rouennais A’
Return to Gerich homepage

Karl Gerich's “Rouennnais A”, first published in 1990, is a 32-card double-ended pack with one joker and an additional card showing a sun/moon motif and the number '20'. The Aces are highly decorated with the pip in a central circle and two different figures at each end of the card including Adam and Eve, Pierrot and Columbine, Punch and Judy and Moses. The courts are lavishly illustrated and reminiscent of the Russian VP/XP design, but all are original.
