Le dessous des cartes. 350 ans de cartes à jouer au département des Estampes et de la Photographie de la BnF

Abstract : The Prints and Photography department of the Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF) manages a remarkable collection of 2,000 series of playing cards. Its lavishness and diversity make it one of the foremost collections un the world, but its history is interesting in itself: it was assembled over more than three centuries, fuelled by art as well as popular productions, and is inextricably linked to the origins of both printmaking and the Prints department. Today this prestigious collection is entering a new era: after complete and detailed cataloguing it is now being entirely digitised so its almost 58,000 cards can be accessed online in Gallica, the BnF's digital library.
