My Goodness my Guinness

“My Goodness my Guinness” playing cards (Gilroy Special Edition) to commemorate the centenary of the birth of John Gilroy (1898-1985), the famous designer of almost all of the Guinness posters and publicity items. I don’t think however, that the court card inserts were designed by the famous man but the animal characters holding the courts on each card are obviously the real Gilroy originals.
