Welcome To The Curios

The Curios have been gathered from near and far. They may be common-as-muck or one-of-a-kind. They may be worth a pretty penny or a dime-a-dozen. They may be horrifying, captivating, loathsome, or scintillating.

Whatever the cause of their creation, hopefully they bring enjoyment to someone out there.

Tim Burton's Playing Cards

I picked these up while visiting the Tim Burton exhibition held at the Australian Centre of the Moving Image earlier this year. I was told by a friend that all of the cards had their own individual pictures, and was a bit disapointed when I found out that only the face cards had Burton images and the same images were replicated across the suits. Also, I'd seen all of these sketches before in Burton's book "The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy". I think a really impressive deck could've been made using a larger range of images, e.g. character sketches of the Penguin, Beetlejuice, et al, but I guess there would've been some significant licensing laws to struggle through.
