These card patterns are adapted from Under the Sweetgum Tree by Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007), who created delightfully clever illustrations of the natural world.
Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007) loved animals and nature but was quick to remind folks that he was an artist, not a naturalist: “I think flat, simple, and funny.”In a style he called “minimal realism,” Harper used geometric shapes, patterns, and vivid colors to simplify nature’s complexities and bring out each critter’s personality. With the cheeky tail end of a deer or the chubby cheeks of a squirrel snacking at a birdfeeder, Harper’s artwork makes viewers smile.
Includes two shrinkwrapped decks of bridge-size playing cards in a sturdy reusable box. Bridge decks include score cards and jokers.
Box size: 5⅛ x 3 ⅞ x 1 in.
Perfect gift for nature loving card players on your list!
