Mose was the nom de plume of the French cartoonist and illustrator Moïse Depond (1917-2003). He was a prolific artist and is known to have created at least 5,000 drawings. His work was appreciated in Japan (where this pack was produced) and from 1992 he taught at the University of Kyoto. This fully illustrated pack is about the game of golf – in all its forms and making fun of many of its peculiarities. There is even a nod to Scotland being the home of golf (on the Ace of Spades). Mose himself appears in caricature on two of the Jokers. The back design shows the difficulty of a shot to the green when there are two enormous trees in the way. The cards are both all plastic and gilt-edged. See the outer sleeve►
