I spotted these on Twitter earlier today… After months of imagining and looking for a deck of cards that would be all about dogs yet look modern, not something that was painted for kids and metaphorically dipped in every kind of sweet substance to give you visual diabetes…
Oh, the Pack of Dogs, the most artful, whimsical deck, that appeared before my eyes was the dream come true!
Each card is a gorgeous little sketch created by an American artist John Littleboy. The sketches feature different breeds either as nature intended or all dressed up as historic characters from different eras and destinations.
I ordered mine from Etsy a few minutes ago. Not that I am good at pocker – or any card game except the Russian “Fool” (oh yes, I was good at this one as a kid!)… But I love any form of dog art and will probably end up framing some of the suits because they are way too good to be hidden in a drawer.
