Two wonderful decks that feature poster art. Each is available separately for $15; both are for sale for $30. Each is described briefly below.
• Mint set of charming cards made by Grimaud, called “54 Affiches Retro” (“54 Retro Posters”), featuring an historic French poster on each card, most of which seem to me to be early advertisements relating to remedies for various health issues. The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus an extra card announcing the deck. The cards are wide, measuring 88mm x 63mm, and come in the original box. The cards are mint, having been removed from their wrapper to be inspected and photographed for this listing. The box is in excellent condition, except for an abrasion on the top flap where a tag has been removed.
• Mint set of very interesting and frequently inspiring cards published by Phillip Lewis Agencies of Britain, featuring a poster from World War II on each card, most of which celebrate and urge support for the Allied war effort. The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus 1 extra card identifying the artist and source for each poster. The cards are large and wide, measuring 98mm x 68mm, and come in the original box. The deck was mint and sealed in the box when I purchased it, and I broke the wrapper of the box to inspct and photograph the cards for this listing. Thus the cards and box are mint.
Thanks for visiting.
