Britain's fascination with sport and leisure activities is legendary. We invented football, cricket and golf, and standardised many other sports. Artist Sylvie Jones takes a fresh look at our sporting institutions: A Wicked Pack is the ideal vehicle for her delicate, almost miniaturist, style, packed with witty observation and irreverent detail, as well as being a must for all cardsharps. The 'Royal' cards and aces of each suit, plus two jokers, have a separate designs; the numerical cards, on the other hand, follow a pattern: the number on the card relates to the number of figures in the composition.
From the intimate and piquant two of clubs to a positively orgiastic ten of diamonds, each pack contains fifty-four cards and delivers twenty-seven different scenes - alike only in their explicit, erotic excellence.
