Pplaying cards and their characters by Jonathan Burton

Illustrator Jonathan Burton has decided to swap boobies for a more tasteful approach, creating an illustrated pack of cards that look back to the golden age of board games when everyone was rosy-cheeked and wholesome. Commissioned by the Folio Society, these playing cards are wonderfully nostalgic with no short supply of amusing characters decorating their faces – in particular a scuba diver who cannot swim posing as a king and a gentleman drinking tea whilst riding a hyena.
