"As the title suggests, this oversized deck of cards, containing 52 chapters based on the interactions of five characters, can be shuffled and dealt (read) in any order. The loose sheets are cut to resemble a deck of playing cards and are printed with the text on the obverse and illustrations on the reverse in playing-card fashion. The illustrations, done in collaboration, have their own shuffled collage-like look." References: Johanna Drucker, The Century of Artists' Books, 1995." Printed Matter
