Les Géants d’un Mythe

The world of playing cards owes a great deal to the art of cinematography. “Les Geants d'un Mythe” playing cards were created by François Poulain celebrating legends of the silver screen and manufactured by Grimaud in 1983. The 12 court cards show caricatures of movie stars, arguably more interesting than photographs, and who are mostly American. The pips are morphed cinema equipment (microphones, clapperboards, etc). while the four aces feature different pieces of vintage film-making equipment. See the Key Card
