We like cards. The old ones especially. And the ones the little guy makes, especially too. The colourful ones, they are regular cards for a common card game that every little kid knows here. You get them at the tobacconist's for a few crowns. I tried to find out where the pictures come from, or what era, they are reproductions of old woodcuts, 19th century and backwards. And I wish we bought the cards we saw in Verona in an antique store, they were small and completely mysterious. Oh, and in Barcelona, in the museum of Frederic Mares, there were old and forgotten cards on display. Domik is making Schwarzer Peter here, or Old Maid card game, this one is called Old Sock (in the middle).
