Introducing the Third in the fig. 23 “Storybook” Series of Flip-Book Animated Playing Cards!
Following the “Wonderland” and “Looking-Glass” decks, fig. 23 is proud to present “The Wizard of Oz” deck, featuring the original illustrations by W. W. Denslow from the 1900 book by L. Frank Baum. Designed and animated by Stephen W. Brandt.
This deck, as with all of the other fig. 23 decks, has two different jokers. It is of the same design and pips as the two previous “storybook” decks. The flip-book animation depicts Dorothy’s house being tossed-around within the tornado, transporting Dorothy and Toto to the land of Oz. Of course, being true to “The Wizard of Oz,” the diamonds have been replaced with emeralds (same shape, different color – easy-peasy). Keep in mind that this deck is based upon the original book, not the movie – so the slippers on the backside are silver, not ruby!
