Beautiful and charming deck of cards made by Handa of Denmark c.1965, with designs by artist Axel Orn on all cards. The wonderful artwork portrays common humanity. It is gently satirical, reflecting an awareness of human foibles, but with warmth and compassion. There is artwork on all cards. The backs are plain red.
The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus an unbacked insert card in English describing the artist. The cards are large and wide, measuring 92mm x 62mm, and are housed in the original box.
The cards are in superb, pristine condition, and the box is “as new.”
There is another set of these cards for sale in this shop, but a card is missing and the box is in pieces (T00002848). That other deck is priced with those shortcomings in mind.
