Get It: With a bit of ferriting on eBay, you should be able to find a similar pack of cards for $50 – $100.
When my grandfather passed last year away, he left behind a treasure trove of curious that have given me no end of pleasure. One of which, is a set of (circa) 1940s illustrated playing cards from the renowned pin-up artist Heinz Villiger.
I don’t know much about them, or where they came from but Heinz was a renowned Swedish artist whose wares proved popular at poker games. 60 years later, and their irresistible curves, coquettish poses and naive sexual charms are still as sensual and provocative as ever, even by today’s hyperbolic standard of sexy.
