Just Type Playing Cards

Art of Play


Just Type is a modern reinterpretation of classic playing cards and a tribute to the vast potential of typography. Paula Scher, a titan of the graphic design world, collaborated with fellow Pentagram designers Jeff Close and Kristin Huber to deconstruct the classic French design of traditional cards, removing all extraneous elements. What's left is Just Type.

"Typography is painting with words," Scher says. With this deck, she demonstrates once again why she's one of the most influential and respected graphic designers in the world.
