Hand-made replica 17th century English playing cards, based on museum originals.
Decks are made up on two-ply pasteboard which reproduces the tactile quality of antique cards. Suits are Coins, Cups, Swords and Batons.
Around 1987 I decided to make a pack of playing cards from woodblocks and coloured with stencils. I imagined I was carrying out my 'apprenticeship'.
