There is an underlying element of subtle humour in these cleverly designed playing cards… gently questioning the issue of legality. The cards are collages of various images, juxtopposed and merged together, with vibrant and colourful patterns. The suit signs and pips are gold-edged. Overall, a superb piece of work. The more you look the more you'll see, and in the "History & Memoirs" there's also some fun stuff…
