John Littleboy’s playing cards are a miniature treasure trove of visual nutrition. His Pack of Dogs depict our furry friends as we imagine them to be: coy, heroic, aloof, comical and, as always, lovable. A dramatic ballerina, a heroic soldier, a love-struck troubadour are each presented with great wit and good humor.
In 2017, John’s creation went viral on Reddit, Bored Panda and Twitter. In no time at all, Pack of Dogs Playing Cards were flying across the world and into the mailboxes of thousands of eager customers. Ever since, these cards has been a go-to gift for dog lovers worldwide.
Pack of Dogs is printed in the USA by the United States Playing Card Company.
