Heritage_Playing_Card_Company_logo2Founded in 1992, family owned Heritage Playing Card Company (UK) has created a beautiful range of illustrated playing cards to entertain and educate. Each their deck has its own thought-out theme. They found a nice compromise between visual and textual information on playing cards to make them suitable for games, educational purposes and playing card collecting. Their playing cards are sold in more than 20 countries around the world. Many of the decks were printed in three languages (English, French and German).

The Famous Wild Cats Playing Cards [Chats Sauvages (French), Großkatzen (German)] is the deck of playing cards dedicated to different wild cat species living in our world. Heritage Playing Card Company produced these playing cards under licence from Trioview Ltd.

The deck: 52 different playing cards with images of wild cats + 2 different Jokers + 1 information card. Indices and pips are in all four corners. Bridge size. Playing cards were printed in Belgium, supposedly by Cartamundi. They use casino cardboard and have a smooth finish.
