Deck of cards: 16th centuary cards

2 new packs of cards arrived in the post last week, i ordered them for inspiration for my Cards project.
They are printed by rose and pentagram designs and they are replicas of a 16th century french deck of cards which is a very similar design to cards we still use today except without the numbers and a !6th Century German pack of satirical playing cards, which is a 48 card deck (is has no ACE cards) and each cards is a detailed picture card.

The cards are lovely, here are some scans
