My favourite cards from the deck were hard to choose, but my first pick would be the King of Cups. Here we see a crowned penguin sitting on a rocking chair on ice, cup in the hand and an egg cradled in the right. The Knight of Cups of delightfully mad; a flower-wreathed hare walks on two legs, looking drunk or dazed, eyes to the heavens. The Queen of Cups is also well-chosen, showing a swan lounging languorously o a lake-side bench seat, dressed in pink ruffles, with an attitude of extremely languid relaxation. I also liked the Four of Swords and its image of two lizards lying indolently, smoking a tobacco pipe in the sun.
