Wonderful set of cards published c.1978 by Edition Arts et Lettres with the delightful designs of J.M. Cuny based upon a conception of Yvan Woodcock, celebrating the cuisine of the Lorraine region of Eastern France. The suit symbols have been designed to incorporate cooking features (i.e., diamond inside a cooking dish, heart with a fork through it, etc.). The World Web Playing Card Museum indicates that the cards were made by Grimaud, but I cannot find anything on the box or cards to indicate it. The cards are accompanied by a small booklet in French that explains what is shown on the court cards, Aces and Jokers.

The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus a card announcing the deck. The cards are wide, measuring 88mm x 63mm, and come in the original box.

The cards are in excellent condition, “as new” or very nearly so. The booklet is also in excellent condition, though very slightly “pinched” at the bottom. The box is in very good condition, quite clean but with an abrasion at the top that mars it.

Reference: Fournier, Playing Cards, France 1978
