Jenny Craig: "This is a 16th century inspired handmade card deck. The cards are all portraits of friends who are medieval re-enactors in the Society for Creative Anachronism. Each card was designed and drawn by Heather Morgan and then carved in linoleum and printed by Jenny Craig.
"This is a 52 card deck, and can be used just like a modern one; however, it is based on the extremely common German style in the 16th century, where you have a Unter (Under), Uber (Over), and a King, instead of the common modern Jack, Queen, King."
The artists invite you to color the images using watercolor paints, markers, or pencils.
