The Deconstruction of the History of Playing Cards.

Some question on the make up of a poker card deck:

Why 52 cards?

Why 4 suits?
Why Clubs Hearts Spades Diamonds?
What is the origin of the Ace card? What about its high/low value?
Why 2-9 but then J K Q?

2 red suits vs 2 black suits?

Origin of the Joker?

Observations:

Beveled edges

180 rotatable cards
