You like skeletons? How about mariachi? How about wicked souls being flung to into the gaping mouths of giant devils?

If you answered yes to any of the above, you’ll love this deck of playing cards with engravings from 19th century illustrator José Posada! A dark yet playful deck of playing cards for chuckling at your own mortality.

José Guadalupe Posada (1852 – 1913) was a Mexican political printmaker and engraver whose work has influenced many Latin American artists and cartoonists because of its satirical acuteness and social engagement. He used skulls, calaveras, and bones to make political and cultural critiques.
