Commissioned for a wedding in 2016, these Alice in Wonderland inspired 'Save The Date' cards are individually hand-printed on both sides to replicate a working pack of playing cards.
The main back image and 'Ace' cards are designed by me and the King, Queen, Jack and Joker cards have been adapted from the original John Tenniel illustrations to work in a classic 'playing card' style. Everything has been cut from lino and printed using linseed oil based ink.
I made 3 packs for the betrothed, so at a total of 162 cards (plus a few that needed re-printing), my hands were a little worse for wear afterwards! They absolutely loved the final outcome though, so it was definitely worth it.
