christmas house of cards...


this little hand made christmas card is one of my favorite things i own. it's probably from the late 1950's, simply made by gluing an original photograph to some green and red construction paper. of course, the wonderful thing is the construction made using the house of cards set designed by charles and ray eames. the eames house of cards is one of my favorite toys ever created, and i have numerous different variations on the sets as they were released - originally through tigrett in the 50's, and later through creative playthings and ravensburg in the 70's. the cards were one of the eames best realizations of their own creative process resulting in a situation of new creative process for the user.
