My wonderful friend and Renaissance woman Kirsten Rian has once again amazed me with her versatile talents.
Kirsten and photographer Lauren Henkin just produced Deck of Chords, a full deck of offset-printed playing cards. Each card front features an image of Lauren's from an unpublished portfolio titled The Lines Between Us, and on the back, a poem by Kirsten. There are 52 cards in total plus a signed cover card.
The set is completed, the prototype printed, and the final product is expected in a few weeks. Until then, Kirsten and Lauren are offering a pre-sale price of $14, which includes shipping to anywhere in the US. Order on Lauren's website.
After November 1st, the price will go up to $24. Please email Lauren for shipping costs outside the US.
