Sforza Castle World Card
Looking at this card, yet again, I'm struck by how some of the picture seems to be cut off around the edges. It seems very odd to me that the artist would have intended this, why wouldn't they put the full faces of the animals?
When I first saw this card, I assumed it was an Italian style card that had the edges folded over it covering part of the front, and that the number had been added on top of where the fold was. Ross confirmed that that was not the case, that the card wasn't wrapped, but had been printed this way.
I have to wonder though, why does it look like part of the image has been cut off? In the Vieville and Noblet, the full bodies of the animals are there, it's hard to imagine that whoever created this card would purposely cut off parts of the image in this way. Very odd.
