There are some things that points towards playing cards was existing in Asia around 1000 A.D or even earlier. These were the seeds on what would later become the poker art of today. Those cards are believed to have been thin pieces of paper. The art or symbols rather where more like dominoes with dot patterns representing twenty one different combinations.
Like today’s poker art they also had different suits, represented by coin emblems. It is likely that the coins where chosen since coins were often what was at stake.
Eventually around the thirteenth century, the use of various playing cards had moved on and reached towards the Middle East. The art on these cards where hand-painted and some of them where discovered in Egypt. These card had values represented by military ranks, already growing more similar to the poker art of today. There were also symbols like swords and chalices etcetera.
These cards reached the southern parts of Europe in the middle of the fourteenth century.
The symbols being used where Swords, Cups, Coins and Sticks in various formations. They were still quite a distance from contemporary poker art.
Most of the early development of poker art in Europe was done by the Germans. They were very clever in producing a multitude of symbols and courts. The art on these cards were often in a caricature style. Eventually the Germans settled on four suits which were the following, Hawk Bells, Hearts, Acorns and Leaves. The Queen was removed from the deck when this standard was settled.
In Italy they kept the Queen along with other nobles on their card art. These cards turned into a new game called Tarocco, and yes this was indeed an early variant of today’s Tarot cards.
They also introduced a type of wild card, the fool, which we now commonly know as the Joker a common element in the poker art of current date.
