Cambridge playing cards – a pack with the Corpus Clock on the backs of the cards

The novelty here is not the cards, but in the picture on the backs. The picture shows The Corpus Clock or, as its inventor John Taylor has christened it, the Chronophage (literally “time eater” from the Greek word for time, chronos and to eat, phage). If you have any interest at all in clocks, it is worth looking up the Corpus Clock on Wikipedia. The clock was unveiled in 2008. The cards are normal and still in their wrapper. Published by Galileo with The Cambridge Portfolio. Made in Austria by Piatnik.
