Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal; bad poets deface what they take, and good poets make it into something better, or at least something different.

Possibly. At least he treats us with some respect, so we should give him also a fair chance. The first selected sentence isn't wrong, an "illumed elite" somehow existed in each time. About the second sentence ... it isn't my taste, but this also could be said of a lot of these old objects. They all tell us something about an old time, well, one could assume, that such items cause "initiations".

New Acquisition: The Bowes Playing cards of 1590

The Map Library is pleased to announce the acquisition of no less an item than the earliest recorded set of geographical playing cards, and the first playing cards to have been manufactured in England, engraved, printed and published in London in 1590.

... This treasure, purchased with the help of the Friends of the British Library, has now been catalogued and digitised (You may also have seen it on display recently in the Treasures of the British Library gallery). The set contains 53 cards without suit markings, each containing a tiny engraved map of an English or Welsh county, plus a general map of England and Wales. They are the second earliest engraved county maps after the maps of Christopher Saxton, whose atlas was published in 1579 and later. They were probably copied, in fact, from Saxton’s general map of England and Wales.

... the cards’ craftsman, the author is more shrouded in mystery. The imprint (on one of the text cards) reads ‘Englan: Famous Plac (which we take to mean London) : W.B. inuent,1590’. The identity of W.B. has long been debated, but it was discovered (by Mann and Kingsley) that a William Bowes is associated with a later pack of playing cards produced in 1605, who was the brother of a Ralph Bowes, who was granted a license to import playing cards in 1578.

A movie to a playing card exhibition near Prague 2016 (muzeu v Roztokách u Prahy)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utj5Yd-g45k

One doesn't understand much. Probably this had some context to the IPCS meeting this year, at the same place, reported at ...
http://www.i-p-c-s.org/

A new chairman was elected: Gejus van Diggele
http://www.e-s-g.eu/spiele-sammler/priv ... n-diggele/

Franz Braun (1923-2016) has died this year, as I learn from the list of past honorary members of the IPCS.

He had worked as a hobby-magician, occasionally. From this he started to collect playing cards. For a very long time he traded with them. He had a very large collection. I visited him twice.

I got a title-picture of the "Economist" as a Christmas present, which I combined with a Santa-Claus and a wine bottle opener.

Well, it relates to a 3 pages article with no word about the Tarot artist. The most remarkable pictures might be this Trump as Angel of Judgment and a Wheel of Fortune with 3 European political leaders.

The title page found meanwhile attention of 3 longer youtube-movies (and possibly more):
