Very cool ace in that Cutler deck Jase!
Mad capering figures everywhere, and touches of colour. Nice find.

And the antique decks....and the round Fournier :drool: ... it's always a pleasure viewing your thread .

**update October 1
Forgot to mention that your Comedia del Art set looks like prints made from the engraved plates. You can see an indent in the paper around each image. I also love the courts in the Jeu Henri IV. Great find.

I`ve been eagerly waiting for this very cool kickstarter to arrive. Cryptic Cards designed by Immy Smith and Printed by Carta Mundi. :drool: i originally backed for a 66 card deck ,but with the change of printer (due to the original printer trying to pass inferior tuck boxes onto Immy :evil: ) that didn`t do 66 card decks, i choose to get a book (which has pictures of the extra cards from the 66 card deck) and an extra deck instead.
