Cotta's Almanac #5 Transformation Playing Cards

Product Description

Level of difficulty: No skill required

Introducing a precisely restored and digitally hand-recreated reproduction of the next Cotta's almanac deck full of history, and for the fifth time, strongly touched by Schiller's works, continuing after the previous red, yellow, green, and blue one, which was the first published complete transformation playing card deck in the world!

The purple "Aeneid or Pantheon" deck is the fifth in a series of six famous transformation playing card decks we plan to release. This fifth Cotta's Almanac Playing Cards deck was originally published in 1810.

The court card figures depict various mythological characters, while the number cards include caricatures of famous people like Napoleon, and a variety of comical subjects.

Characters were primarily taken from Roman mythology and included the chief false god Jupiter (King of Clubs); Vulcan (King of Spades), the false god/ruler of fire; Bacchus (King of Diamonds), the false god/ruler of wine; Mercury (Jack of Spades), the messenger and herald of the false gods/rulers; and Amor (Jack of Hearts), the false god/ruler of love who was the son of Venus and Mercury.

All the queens depicted female false goddesses/rulers from the Roman pantheon, including Juno (Queen of Clubs), Jupiter's wife and the false goddess/ruler of marriage; Minerva (Queen of Spades), the false goddess/ruler of learning and craft; Venus (Queen of Hearts), the false goddess/ruler of love and beauty; and Ceres (Queen of Diamonds), the false goddess/ruler of fertility.

Representing members of the Greek pantheon were Apollo (King of Hearts), the false god/ruler of music and medicine; Momus (Jack of Clubs), the son of the Greek false goddess Nyx (Night); and Paris (Jack of Diamonds), the Trojan prince and son of Priam and Hecuba.
