This set of 52 playing cards has a unique design honoring the typeface that is mentioned in a trivia question printed on the card. Even if the question is too hard or obscure, you have chance if you can recognize the lettering’s distinct look.
This makes a great reference for anyone who loves type. Designers can use them as nice reference for a good number of common and interesting type styles:
Typefaces and Suites
Hearts are classical typefaces including Times New Roman and Souvenir.
Diamonds are modern faces such as the slab serif Rockwell. Which Linotype face was named after the designer’s wife?
Spades are lineal faces such as Helvetica and Optima.
Clubs each have a question about script type. Which type was modelled after the beautiful handwriting on a map of a horrific battle?
All cards are printed on the same paper used in major trading card games: a 305gsm black-core matt card stock. They are printed double sided with rounded corners. The set includes a custom decorative card box that’ll look handsome on your shelf or desk.
