PANNONIA - 1998
In 1998 the IPCS had its annual meeting in Kecskemet, Hungary. The organizers had a small art contest to which several local artists contributed. Renowned Hungarian artist Szemadam Gyorgy won the contest and I commissioned him to design a pack of playing cards. This non-standard "Pannonia" deck (the Roman name for Western Hungary) was the result with its stylized birds, insects and reptiles of the region in which the artist grew up.
There was a limited run of 300 packs each with 52 card + Joker + Artist signed certificate of authenticity with the number of the pack + Box. Beautiful gilded trim. Mint condition.
