Political Figures

54 Welsh Politicians on a deck of playing cards...

Welsh Political Figures playing cards

An original portrayal of Welsh politicians from the mid 19th century until 2011

Welsh Political Figures playing cards feature 54 portraits of famous and popular Welsh politicians from the four main political parties in Wales: Conservatives, Labour, Welsh Liberals (Lib Dem) and Plaid Cymru, primarily those members elected to Westminster, Cardiff Bay and Strasbourg-Brussels. The full colour drawings were created by Welsh political artist Dan Peterson. This is probably the first pack of political playing cards emanating from Wales and so is doubly historic.
