Collectors of Playing Cards, Lovers of Pin-Up & Fun Photography-Welcome!

  Jim Balent and I have been working together in the same studio for 20+ years! And in that time we've snapped a few photos. Some for art reference, some for fun but always inspired by the lovely ladies that set the style of pin up years before. You'll see the influence of Bettie, Marilyn, Elvira, Lucille and more in the photos we chose to create this deck of cards. Each and every card IS UNIQUE! You'll even find a few pin up illustrations by Jim and I included.
    The photos are burlesque in nature and only tease nudity but our art is for Mature Viewers. But with your support, I promise it will be a 52 pick up of Pin Up Playtime!

I've Created, what I think, are some very exciting bundles below. I hope you enjoy looking through and choosing from them as much as I enjoyed fashioning each one Exclusively for this Kickstarter Campaign. 
 
          Please have a gander at the buffet of cheesecake below!
           C'mon and play with ME!
                                Holly G!

Jim and I with our Pangur Ban.
