Banjo Playing Cards!
The cards tell a brief story of the banjo - its historical roots in Africa and the numerous styles that it has developed into. Each suit is dedicated to a particular family of Banjo: Hearts shows the banjo predecessors - Gourd banjos from Africa and the early instruments that were brought by slaves to the United States. Diamonds are the open back banjos used for old-time music usually played with claw-hammer/frailing styles. Clubs relate the various four string instruments that were very popular in the first half of the 20th century - plectrum, tenor and Irish tenor banjos, used in jazz and various folk styles. Spades represent the 5 string resonator banjos that have become widely known for bluegrass music, but are used in many genres today.
Every card was hand designed by me, front and back. They are done in the tradition of standard playing cards, in Poker size, with all of the intricacies you would expect, including one-eyed jacks, suicide kings and many other details that playing card aficionados will appreciate.
