After many requests, I've scanned my collection of antique Logomachy game cards and collected them to share with you. The graphics, colors and illustrations on these cards make them memorable - everyone who sees them wants their own!
This alphabet game originated in 1874 and continued to be popular up to 1900. There are multiple versions of the cards; I have 4 different styles in my collection, each is included here.
Three of the sets follow the same pattern - one style of card for each letter, except for 6 "prize" cards which each have their own design. Two of the sets have a framed bird image; one in black and white, the other is beautifully colored. The third set pictures a little girl watching a bird on a branch outside her window.
The final set has different Victorian images on each card, many children and couples, very pretty.
There are 114 images in all: each alphabet letter from each of the 4 sets, plus images from the backs of 7 different decks. You'll also receive altered versions of both framed bird styles, each with the letter removed.
This collection of images shows the actual cards in my collection. Most are in excellent condition, some are a bit faded and you may find an occasional smudge or worn edge visible, just as if you had the card in your hand.
These images show items in my personal collection, which belong to me. You may sell individual creations made with these images. The individual images and the file should not be copied or forwarded to others; and may not be resold or redistributed in any form.
I hope you'll enjoy using the images, and that you'll forward links or pictures to me of your creations. I'm eager to show them on my blog.
I scanned each page at 300 dpi.
Any lines or text on the pictures shown here will not be on the images you receive.
