Artist Tauba Auerbach has designed a series of playing cards which builds on her 50/50 work, an exploration of opposites and language. 50/50 culminated in a book published by Deitch Projects in 2009 titled 50/50, 100 pages 100 patterns, 50% white, 50% black.
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.
