Now that the update of the DXPO site has been done, I'm organizing the decks for the renovation of the "War On Cards" xpo on that site. So no surprise that today's lockdown deck is again a WW I deck. Again by F. A. Lattmann from Goslar, Germany, but completely different than the WW I deck by Lattmann that I showed here a couple of days ago.
This deck has French suits and ranking, the courts are done in simple line drawings and give the deck a modern look, printed in offset. The designs were done by Ferdinand Herwig and the 36 cards deck was published as "Vaterländische Spielkarte" (Patriotic Playing Cards) in 1915. No research for this was necessary, all the basic info is on the 7 of diamonds.
