Looking Back At 2013 on The World of Playing Cards

2014 will be the 18th year of the World of Playing Cards, since we launched our website in 1996 the site has grown to over 1,500 articles and informative pages about the history and culture of playing cards. Here's a brief summary of 2013's highlights:

We're looking forward to adding more educational and informative articles in 2014. If you have anything to contribute feel free to contact us through our contact page. Special thanks to Barney Townshend and Rod Starling for contributing many items from their collections.

Over the years we have also improved the website over many iterations and design changes, here's a highlight of some of the homepage designs.

An early version of the site's homepage from the late 90s. The website had no database or search engine.
Here in 2010 the website has the search engine and still keeps the red stained glass border around the content.
In 2011 we decided to simplify the page's design by removing the elaborate border, a step towards a more minimal site design.
Another iteration in 2011 which brings more of the site's content onto the homepage, adding Editor's Picks as well as other selected articles.
This is how the site looked towards the end of 2013. With content from all of our topics and countries, as well as the blog.
