Parallel Playing Cards

London-based visual artist Ryan Gander has, in collaboration with design collective Europa, designed a set of photonegative playing cards especially for playing Parallel Black Jacks, a blackjack variation especially developed for the parallel cards. The cards were originally created by Gander and Europa in 2006 for the Standard Hotel in Miami. They are printed on both sides (with different denominations on each side), which is necessary for the tournament game they were designed for. However, it also means that these fairly pricy cards ($60/~R425) can thus only be used to play a limited amount of games. But don’t they look just amazing…
