Posada Playing Cards
Every Card a Work of Art
New deck celebrates the distinctive art of Jose Guadalupe Posada (1852-1913), the Mexican political artist whose work has influenced many with its satirical use of skulls and bones to make political and cultural critiques. Posada illustrated all kinds of characters: revolutionaries, politicians, drunks, elegant ladies, bull fighters, and workers, among others. His skeletons portray the sorrows and joys of a wide variety of people.
