This minimalist poster represents the typical ace of clubs. In the Cartomancy the Ace of Clubs was defined as, "The Ace of Clubs is the card of marriage. In olden days, marriages were often arranged based on money and prestige. You could lift your social status by marrying your daughter off to a noble family, or to a wealthy landowner. In many cultures the girl was expected to bring along a dowry as well, to add to the husband’s holdings.  Based on the marriage contract she was usually considered to be the property of her new husband.

Today very few marriages are arranged this way in the western world. It is perhaps for this reason that the Ace of Clubs in modern cartomancy has lost the meaning of marriage. These days, most marriages are based on love and may be better represented by cards in the suit of Hearts" (written by J. David Arcuri, on https://cardseer.wordpress.com/)

Recently linen-backed, this poster is in excellent condition and would look beautiful framed.
