Richard McGuire Playing Cards


PLAYING CARDS THAT TELL A STORY: Love. Conflict. Money. Work.

Iconic illustrator Richard McGuire presents a playing card deck where each suit tells a story. From tales of epic and everyday love, to wars won and lost, to endless cycles of work and fortunes that come and go, these thought-provoking cards inspire reflection on the most enduring aspects of human nature, prompting us to question, explore, and wonder where the heart of each story really lies.
