Playing Cards – Ukrainian Style

0 Posted by - September 4, 2010 - Illustrations

Ukrainian artist Vladislav Erko created an absolutely amazing deck of cards with authentic Ukrainian ladies, witches, jack-Cossacks and kings-Hetman. Some of the critics, it is true that saw the influence of books by Paolo Coelho (their Erko illustrated). But I guess it all from a lack of knowledge of Ukrainian culture.
