We came across these playing card illustrations earlier this week and they are certainly satisfying our rather obsessive love of anything ‘playing card’ related. Aren’t they just delightful? The designs were created by Jonathan Burton for members of the Folio Society, and (not surprisingly) the work has gone on to win a silver medal at the Society of Illustration in New York. We think they’re just gorgeous. Richard has had his work admired by many; TIME magazine, The New York Times, New Scientist, The Times, Plansponsor, The Wall Street Journal and many more magazines and newspapers. Additional clients of note include BAFTA, The Folio Society, Penguin Books, Orion Books, The Royal Mail and The BBC.
