Stacked Decks - The Art and History of Erotic Playing Cards

stacked_decks.jpgNow this might be a stretch to call this book poker-related, but I think it'll be interesting to card players of all sizes and shapes. I remember my first time seeing a deck of adult playing cards, at an age when I was younger than I probably should have been, and this book looks pretty fascinating.

They've been called wolf decks, stag decks, and plain old nudie playing cards. They're older than poker, older than blackjack, and they offer a fascinating window into society's ever-changing views of female beauty. Stacked Decks features images of hundreds of erotic playing cards from 1807 to the present day, all illustrated with nude or seminude models, burlesque singers, flappers, 1950s pinup girls, and international superstars.
