A pack of 52 hand-drawn Jokers by an unknown artist with the monogram B or β. Each one imitates a well-known joker playing card from around the world. For some collectors the joker is the most interesting card because it is different from the rest of the pack. It is the ‘wild-card’. Thus it is an opportunity for creativity and humour.
