So to many sailors throughout history, the lighthouse has come to signify a sense of great safety and reassurance. Their proliferation across the world during the last 400 years has led to a rich architectural and social history where the beauty of these structures is matched by the respect with which they and their keepers have been afforded. This fascinating pack of 54 illustrated playing cards details a rich selection of the world's lighthouses and their deep relationship with the development of maritime navigation.
