Nine Lives Illustrated Playing Cards by Annette Abolins

This week I decided that instead of a book review I would post some information about Annette's Nine Lives Illustrated Playing Cards.

Many of you would already be familiar with Annette's Nine Lives Tarot Cards, which have proven to be astoundingly successful. The playing cards - or, at least, the royal cards in each suite - are based on the same images as she used in the tarot cards. The design work is exceptional, and the cards themselves are beautifully printed and presented.

On both her blogs (links above), Annette has posted a lot of very interesting information about the creation of her cards as well as information about tarot cards and playing cards in general. Both these sites are definitely worth a visit.
