Playing cards have existed for 11 centuries but they've never been as fun and colorful as this. Housed in a sturdy box with foil stamping, these cards feature a full spectrum of colors on their faces and a uniform black and white pattern on their backs. Comes with a mini booklet on the history of cards with game instruction.
|Fredericks & Mae is the art/design team of Jolie Mae Signorile and Gabriel Fredericks Cohen. These two makers of handmade toys, games, and other beautifully designed products met through shared love for materials; they founded their studio in 2007 amid piles of feathers, thread, bamboo, ink, paint, and paper. Their collaborative practice produces lovingly crafted objects for the home, garden, and sky. They call their work "a material anthropology of objects with confused origins." Games for them are tools, rituals. In creating their designs, Fredericks & Mae trace historical arcs of research, not unlike the arcs of balls, kites, and darts as they fly through the air.|
