Tauba Auerbach, Playing Cards, 2009
Artist Tauba Auerbach has designed a series of playing cards which builds on her 50/50 work. The series One Deck of Playing Cards consists of two different decks, one based on mathematical functions and the other on geometric shapes, typical of the artist’s highly acclaimed visual arts. Auerbach created original art as well as three new typefaces, king, queen, and knave, for the project.
Decks come with an informational fold out and are encased in a hand numbered, blind-de-bossed, linen slide box with ribbon lift and pull-tab.
Each of the two decks is produced in an edition of 250 with 10 artist proofs.
Dimensions: 2.75 x 3.75 x 1 in.
Price per deck: $ 200 (non-members)
Price per deck: $ 135 (members)
