If you are interested in the history of playing cards you might find the following 3 links to be a good read!

I conducted a forum search before listing these and only found a History of Magic (check it out if you haven't already) post. So, please forgive me if I missed something and these have been posted before.

http://www.wopc.co.uk/

http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/playing-cards/faq.html

http://www.pagat.com/ipcs/history.html This link was listed in the History of Magic post. I relist it here in the card section in case it was missed.

It's very interesting and enjoyable to know a bit about those little things we become so intimate with.
