Palladin Parlour & Playing Cards by Laura Sutherland, published by Palladin Paperworks, Santa Cruz CA., 1983. This is a sort of “transformed” dack, and the cards contain hidden puns, stories and wordplays, as well as ingenious use of the suit symbols. See the box and info card

According to the artist, “there were two editions of this deck. The first edition was called Sutherland-Brown Playing Cards and the cards were pretty crude as they were cut by a round corner machine – that was in 1977. The second edition was printed a few years later and in a slightly larger edition – Palladin Playing Cards – which is what you have. They were manufactured by a regulation card printing company so the decks were cut as a whole deck by a machine and they are the proper size, etc.”  Source here
