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!
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 !
