Playing Card Joker Collecting. I started to pay attention to jokers and have found them fascinating. I work in education and sometimes say that from anything, we can learn everything. I have particular fun trying to organize jokers, it's like the proverbial challenge of herding cats. Start with my organizational system . Truly. Amused by the jokers I am.

Musical Jokers and some Dogs
The top two jokers are a simple line drawing of a jester with a trumpet. It's from a very beautiful custom deck created by Wayne, a Baltimore music teacher. The other cards in the deck are illustrated with images of different instruments and have encoded in musical notation the number of the cards. It's an interesting idea. He sells them under the name Nana-Pie.
The bottom two jokers are of man's best friend and the art exxagerates the difference in perspective when you look at dogs' noses from different angles. The deck is copyright artist International and is called: The DOB Artist Collection.
