Art of the Deal: 1960s Japanese Playing Cards

Well here’s a super-cool discovery: a pack of 1960s playing cards using cover art for the magazine Heibon Punch, by artist Ayumi Ohashi.

The cards, our translator tells us, depict a wide range of social situations and leisure activities and the proper attire for each.
