1720's Love Cards

Originally, these cards were printed from copper plates engraved by John Lenthall in 1720. Reproduced from the original deck, the cards have a heavy Greek mythological influence in the images and the captions are all little sayings to do with love. The value of the cards is depicted in the upper corner by a normal suit card image. 

These make a fun deck to read through or play with. Take turns drawing cards and reciting the catchy prose.
