Featuring a series of energetic stick figures, the Richard McGuire Playing Cards have a touch of whimsy and a flair for the dramatic. Inspired by his illustrations that appeared on the cover of The New Yorker, McGuire, an artist in MoMA’s collection, has created a deck of cards where each suit tells a story—tales of love, war, money and work. The Richard McGuire Playing Cards inspire thought-provoking reflection on the most enduring aspects of human nature while cheekily highlighting the similarities between the narratives of our lives and that of our games.
