A translucent playing card is a card that, when held up to the light, reveals a hidden image in the card. Historically, the hidden image has been a XXX erotic image – obscene even by contemporary standards. This is a book written and apparently self-published by playing card authority Trevor Dunning in 1976. As far as I know, it is the only book on the subject of translucent cards; certainly it is the only book in English. It was printed in a limited edition of 300, of which this is no. 190.
The book has 51 pages, and as one might expect some of the XXX revealed images are shown in the book. The book measures approximately 8” on the vertical dimension and 12” on the horizontal. The book is in exceptional condition for what is essentially a paperback publication, albeit one with a dust cover.
Thanks for visiting.
