Friday Fun! – Jane Austen Playing Cards

Prospero Art has a set of playing cards inspired by Jane Austen’s works.

Here’s what the website says:

Jane Austen Playing Cards ~ Favorite Characters & Quotes 

Illustrators featured in this deck are Hugh Thomson & Chris Hammond 

These beautiful cards feature quotes from Jane Austen, English novelist whose works, though satirical, realistically depicted the gender inequalities in inheritance laws that made women dependent on marriage for their economic security. 

The card suits correspond to these novels:

  • Hearts ~ Pride & Prejudice 
  • Diamonds ~ Sense & Sensibility 
  • Clubs ~ Emma 
  • Spades ~ Persuasion

 To order a deck please visit Prospero Art or Amazon.
