Playing cards, quite a history !  1st April to 30th September 2023

People of all ages and from all walks of life enjoy playing cards.

Decks of cards are found in all sorts of places: in stories, paintings
and films, in living rooms, cafés, casinos and gambling dens.
We use them to perform magic tricks, and to build precarious
houses of cards. The faces of playing card are fine figures. It is
said that cards can predict the future as well as entertain.

The design and form of cards have evolved along with traditions,
society and manufacturing methods, making them a mirror of
human history.

Playing cards tell quite a story !
