Product Overview

This 52-card deck cleverly incorporates the suit marks into the charming artwork. Each state card features an illustration and informative caption about the state's history, products, or natural beauty, and identifies its capital and abbreviation. Key cards make it easy to find your state, by suit mark or alphabetically. Includes cards for Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico. This colorful deck, suitable for most card games, is also perfect for collectors or gift giving. Playing card decks come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and provide a wonderful medium for creative design and artwork. Beginning in the early nineteenth century, a series of nonstandard cards were published in Europe with the suit marks integrated, or "transformed" into the face of each card. The innovative designs, some based on historical figures, were often quite humorous, and exhibited a great deal of creativity. It wasn't long before American playing card companies followed suit, publishing the first transformation decks to include jokers. Many of the smaller format playing cards, issued as tobacco and candy insert cards, also featured original transformational art. Artist Wendy Bocuzzi has created a new transformation deck, State by State, that celebrates the bounty and beauty of the USA. You'll enjoy searching for the cleverly hidden suit marks among inspiring landmarks and landscapes, as you play your favorite card games.
