Extremely rare and brilliant deck of cards that was published by Editions B.O.A., featuring the superb designs of artist Edouard Pastor. I recently received an email from Pastor's daughter, and she advises that the deck was was self-published by Pastor in or about 1972, and subsequently published by B.O.A. Her email does not give a date for the B.O.A. edition, but I have dated it to the same decade.
The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus a Frontispiece card with a quote from Jean Cocteau. The cards are bridge size, measuring 87mm x 57mm. They came to me in a plastic Modiano box that is not related to the deck, but fits the cards well; it will travel to the buyer in the same unrelated box.
The cards are in excellent condition, “as new” or very nearly so. The unrelated Modiano box has a crack and is scratched and clouded.
Thanks for visiting.
