EPHEMERID playing cards
Did you know the origin of playing cards? It was a kind of calendar, with 4 colors for the 4 seasons, with 13 cards for the 13 weeks of each season. 52 cards in total which are the 52 weeks of the year!

Following the success of the letterpress calendar and after having designed the 36 days of type, it was time to bring this project to life ! 
EPHEMERA: any items such as tickets or cards that were originally meant to be discarded after use but have since become collectibles.

EPHEMERIDE: French name of a paper calendar that gave you daily information all over the year.

From this idea and my collection of Ephemera over the years, I get the idea of the EPHEMERID playing cards: each card comes with a unique design based of my thousands of hand-letters, invoices, bills, tickets, and photos! 
The deck will features the 52 cards and 2 jokers. All the cards design will be different, and done during the campaign (and probably a little bit later too). The creative process will be shared here on instagram via images and stories. 
I will also print a set of 4 coasters, because with if you want to use the cards for your next poker, you will need to put your beers somewhere !
