This new deck by Joe White follow the Contraband one. You know Joe and his amazing detailed design as we work together on the (sold out) 2015 edition of the calendar and he designed the front cover. Every single playing card within the High Victorian deck was designed from scratch - even the Aces, Jokers, and court cards exude the grand excess of ornamentation quintessential to the Victorian era. In a word: breathtaking. Antler is a deck designed by Tom Lane, who also creates this year edition of the front cover of the letterpress calendar! This Tobacco Brown back design features two Twin Bucks enshrined within beautiful flourishes that mimic the lush forest of Yosemite National Park. I contact Jeff Trish as I love his design of this deck, and I am pleased to say he participates in this year edition of the calendar too! As both Tom Lane and Jeff Trish participate in this year calendar I propose you 2 packs with the calendar (Deluxe or Normal) and their decks.

the johnson banks thought for the week The man who gave Michael Johnson his first job, Wally Olins, died yesterday. In this piece Johnson remembers some of Olins’ famous foibles. I first met Wally nearly thirty years ago, when, as a nervous student, I took a train down to London from the soggy shores of the North-West, clutching a box of slides of my final project. I’m not sure how my slightly hapless tutor had managed to swing the already world-famous Olins as my external project examiner but there I was, in the ubiquitous eighties design consultancy reception, perspiring furiously. My precise memories of the next two hours are unclear. Some things remain mercifully fuzzy, such as the mad search for a slide projector and usable carousel, and what, precisely, Wally said.
