English illustrator Arthur Rackham (1867-1939), premier illustrator of the early 20th century, is most famous for his illustrations of children’s books. But he spent most of his adult life as an illustrator, and thus produced a rich and varied array of art. Among the most notable are his illustrations for Richard Wagner’s Ring, a cycle of four operatic works based on Norse mythology. Each of the 55 cards in the deck has a full size Rackham illustration of this Wagner work, with captions describing the characters and scene, such as "Siegfried crosses the fire and reaches Brunhilde," and "The Wanderer Wotan in disguise."

Standard 2.5" x 3.5" plasticized playing cards, 55 cards per box (4 suits of 13 each, 2 jokers plus a "dummy" joker. Published 2010 by Prospero Art.
