Grid Playing Cards Series Two Blue 2nd Edition Typography ~ Signed Deck
This deck has been personally signed by the artist Luke Wadey from the UK. Signature is on the cellophane, deck is in Brand New condition.
Designed by Luke Wadey, the Grid Playing Cards is a three-part collection based on the design principles of the International Typographic Style, otherwise known as the 'Swiss Style' of graphic design. Its main principles are readability and cleanliness, with most creations adopting an asymmetric layout, always based on the use of a grid.
These grids, usually made up of hidden columns and rows, are used to align words, numbers, pictures, and patterns, so each series in the Grid Collection adopts these principles.
Grid Series Two really is part of a unique collection of designs. A 'must have' for collectors and performers alike, cardistry users are finding ways to use the Grid Series to bring a new dimension to their performances. With a onetime print run limited to 2000 units, printed by USPCC, these 56 poker-size playing cards are printed on linen stock with air cushion finish.
With Grid Series Two, as well as vertical and horizontal alignment like in Grid Series One, Luke has introduced the circle to create a dial effect and explore how different grids can be used on playing cards. Each card has a set of alignment with the numbers and letters that sit on the edge of the circle so that they appear to have the same alignment, whilst not always sitting in exactly the same place on each card.
