Jane Austen Playing Cards
Inspired by Jane Austen's well-loved novels and characters, and rich in authentic period detail, the Jane Austen Playing cards are full of romantic energy and create an excellent atmosphere for Cartomancers interested in Love and Romance readings.
For design inspiration the artist relied on fashion plates found in Ackermann's Repository of Arts-an influential British periodical published from 1809-1829 that featured articles and images on art, architecture, fashion, furniture, needlework patterns, and politics. It is likely that Miss Austen would have been familiar with this publication.
Illustrated by John Eric Ligon and printed by the United States Playing Card Co. Packaged inside a beautiful letterpress-printed tuck box featuring gold foil accents and embossed scrollwork.
