Promotional playing cards

Well, the folks at Ivory Graphics seem to have done a good job, and I finally have 200 decks of playing cards to give away.

These are somewhat limited edition - being the first attempt at drawing the court cards, and with a Jack that has the wrong coloured hat... I doubt that will make them valuable, but who knows, in 150 years :-) Ask the sales guys at A&A nicely and they'll send you one...

The designs are also on my web site - with options to allow you to make about 20,000 variations, released under Creative Commons CC0 Public Domain licence. Enjoy.

P.S. I have even included an interactive picker for the different decks and yet more options...

    Many thanks, Ian

    1. Not intentional, I’ll have to take a look.

    2. My apologies - I should have looked harder :-(
      There is a "Subscribe" option at the bottom of the page that gives the RSS feed page.
