Pin Up Illustrations

This section of the girlie section features illustrations and drawings, not really photography. Here's my favorite which is really elaborate. It is from a famous French deck: "Le Florentin" by Draeger Freres - Editions Philibert. France 1955. There were a limited and numbered set of edition playing cards designed by Paul-Emile Becat. 12,000 decks where printed. Could this be an original or a copy?

I have the two jokers from this set. They are from a French deck: "Le Florentin" by Draeger Freres - Editions Philibert. France 1955. Limited & numbered edition playing cards designed by Paul-Emile Becat. 12,000 decks where printed. Each deck was numbered. Blue and red backs. per Tom van Berkum on the Facebook Joker Collectors Group. Thanks Tom!  These are probably a reproduction of the original deck.

And a nice Vargas, a famous illustrator of pin-ups.


Here is a set of illustrations by the renowned Alberto Vargas.










Here's my old overview of Pin Up Girlie Glamour Jokers (ie erotica and porn). It's now split into bikini girls (the essentials covered), girlie illustration jokers (this one), old fashioned, Asian, and harder core pornographic jokers.

Or, to change topics, here are jesters standing, juggling, performing with cards, or clowns.
