Inspired by the quirky humor of eras past, the retro card deck design by Jonathan Burton features whimsical characters with a classically vintage feel.

Created as gifts for members of the Folio Society with Sheri Gee working as the art director, this playing deck has already won a silver medal at the Society of Illustration in New York. As the packaging states, the graphic illustrations on the card encapsulate some very "odd bods" including a scuba-diving king who wears a childish floaty, a cowboy Jack who has managed to lasso himself and a hyena-riding, tea-sipping Joker to name a few.

Jonathan Burton's retro card deck captures a vintage-inspired hilarity with bizarre designs and pleasing personalities.
