Playing Cards and Literature: Bicycle Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde Decks by Alakazam Magic

20 Aug

I don’t remember any significant role of a fly in the novella. So I can be mistaken but I think that the fly (Cynmoyia mortuorum) one each court card from the Bicycle Mr Hyde Deck just underlines air of death as well as blood stains on all cards from this deck and its tuck case. At the same time the fly makes all the court cards one way.

Bottles on the court cards from the Bicycle Mr Hyde Deck are explained on Jokers from both decks. These are above-mentioned special potions helping Dr Jekyll to keep his Mr Hyde inside himself.

Backs of both decks are strictly dedicated to the “split personality” of Dr Jekyll. In combination they demonstrate the transformation of Dr Jekyll into Mr Hyde.
