Playing Card Art: Alice and Wonderland Playing Cards by Caroline Halliwell

I have to think that Alice in Wonderland is the most popular theme for custom playing cards. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, primarily known as Lewis Carroll, predestined this with his choice of some of the main characters for the book.

It’s amazing how many different interpretations can invent people. Playing cards can absorb all of them. Unfortunately, not all of them can be produced. Below you can acquaint yourself with familiar characters designed by the British artist, Caroline Halliwell. With the exception of the Queen of Hearts, she sees them as agreeable personalities. The Queen of Hearts is always so displeased. It’s because she can’t understand that radical actions do not guarantee better mood.
