Clipped Wings Transformation Playing Cards by Emmanuel José

02 Apr

Using papercutting techniques, Emmanuel follows a centuries-old tradition of transforming the suits and pips of a standard deck of playing cards.

His personal challenge: Create 1 playing card a week, culminating in a complete deck of transformation playing cards***. More read and see here

He decided to create a transformation deck dedicated to birds in 2012 – Clipped Wings Deck. I hope this deck will be printed.

***A transformation playing card (sometimes referred to as a transformation deck when assembled into a complete set) is a type of playing card where an artist incorporates the pips of the non-face cards into an artistic design. In a classical transformation playing card, the pips retain their standard position and coloration on the card. In some variations, the pips may be different in size, location or color. There is some debate as to whether these cards, often referred to as semi-transformed, should be considered true transformation playing cards…more
