Minim Playing Cards

A deck of regulation playing cards re-imagined by NY-based designer Joe Doucet for the minimalist lover. Made with sustainably harvested card stock and vegetable based inks, the familiar shapes of hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades are beautifully reduced to minimal geometric symbols. The requirement to mark the backs of regulation cards has been fulfilled by a single diagonal line instead of the traditional ornamental patterns.

  • PVC cards and paper box.
  • Available in matte black and white.
    • Size: 3.5" x 2.5" x 0.75"

    Wipe clean.
