May 29



When I first saw this deck in 2008, I was immediately attracted by the style and technique of the designs and I still am. It also always reminds me of Han Janssen (and his wife Toos), from who I bought it at that occasion. Two lovely and kind personalities.
So today's lockdown deck: a non-standard variation of the Bohemian pattern, printed by the Obchodni Tiskarny Kolin (OTK) from Prague and published as a Costumes and Folk Art deck in former Czechoslovakia around 1950. The artist was J. Kušička.
