Sturdy keepsake box—These one-of-a kind playing cards stay safe in a sturdy keepsake box with foil stamping and a mini-booklet with interesting history and lore of card decks, game instruction, and information about the artists.

 

Fredericks & Mae is the art/design team of Jolie Mae Signorile and Gabriel Fredericks Cohen. These two makers of handmade toys, games, and other beautifully designed products met through shared love for materials; they founded their studio in 2007 amid piles of feathers, thread, bamboo, ink, paint, and paper. THeir collaborative practice produces lovingly crafted objects for the home, garden, and sky. They call their work "a material anthropology of objects with confused origins." Games for them are tools, rituals. In creating their designs, Fredericks & Mae trace historical arcs of research, not unlike the arcs of balls, kites, and darts as they fly through the air.
