Idea & story
Do you know who is a king of con artists?
Who sold the Eiffel tower? Twice
He convinced the scrap metal dealers that the upkeep of the Eiffel tower was too much for Paris and that the goverment wished to sell it for scrap. He sold them the Eiffel tower. TWICE
The history of playing cards is closely connected with con artsits, gamblers and scammers. Playing cards were often used to make money fast.
The idea of creating these cards is to combine the system of marking cards on the back side and portraits of famous con artists, gamblers and scammers of the 16th-20th centuries on the court cards
