DESCRIPTION 

At the request of my youngest daughter, we are including these gorgeous Jane Austen playing cards.  She is convinced me that mamas and older siblings should get something special too when shopping for the little ones and this deck of cards is a simple add on she says she loves and thinks other Austen fans will too.

She uses these pretty playing cards with characters dressed in Regency styles to play cards with her college friends, with us, and even with her young nephews and nieces, albeit different games, of course! 

Play cards with Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet as King and Queen of Hearts, Henry Crawford as Ace Rogue, and many more of Jane Austen's most memorable characters. Add some 19th-century drama to your favourite card games or learn to play one of the five regency popular card games featured in Austen's stories with the help of the accompanying booklet.
