You See What They Did There?

From Wikipedia:

A transformation playing card (sometimes referred to as a transformation deck when assembled into a complete set) is a type of playing card where an artist incorporates the pips of the non-face cards into an artistic design.

There are some very cool transformation decks.  This one isn't as seamlessly artistic as some, but it's incredibly charming.  It's called the "Vanity Fair Transformation Deck No. 41" and it's from 1895.
