2-Foot Hand-Cut Playing Cards

Paper artist Emmanuel Jose is working on a year-long project that I highly suggest you keep an eye on. He is hand-cutting a 2 foot tall deck of transformation playing cards out of paper, 1 card each week for 52 weeks. Even more amazing than his skills with an X-Acto knife are the brilliant concepts he incorporates into the cards. When his deck is completed, Emmanuel hopes to get it printed as a regular deck of cards (I’d buy one!) and have a show to display his papercut designs. You can follow his progress on his Tumblr blog, Ncyclopedia. And if you’re curious about his process, take a look at this slideshow detailing how he makes his 2 foot tall cards.
