This pack was designed by the Japanese artist Kumi Sugai (1919 – 1996) in Paris in 1972 and edited by Nouvelles Images in 1973.

There are two Jokers and two extra cards with explanations in four languages (French, German, English, and Japanese), not shown here.

The special thing about the pack shown here is a presumably serigraphed extra card signed and numbered (110/150) by the artist. These packs were distributed by the art gallery Brusberg, then in Hannover, as a New Year’s present for 1974.
