The suits in the deck are each loosely connected to a theme. In Acorns, pigs figure into five of the cards. (In popular culture, pigs were equated with lust and gluttony.) In Leaves, several scenes depict the drunken and licentious behavior of the lower classes. Hearts are primarily concerned with the pastimes of the bourgeoisie, some innocent, others less so... And a number of scenes in Bells seem concerned with the futility of vain and foolish behavior.
There are three or four different surviving examples of this deck. The cheapest versions were simply black & white, but we have hand-colored our version inspired by a watercolored version, but left the backs blank as was most common with early playing cards in order to keep the price most affordable.
