The Supramystic Saga cards, a hand-printed run of science trading cards is the brainchild of designer and printer Jon Horn, whom I’m blessed to be buddies with. Each card has a little biography of a scientist as well as his or her ‘rank’ and a colored border denoting how rare they are (try and get a Tesla!). I illustrated several of the scientist portraits (Archimedes, Darwin, and Marie Curie, to name a few), but most of the illustration and design credit is owed to Jon, who has made each deck of cards painstakingly beautiful, down to sewing the stitches that seal each deck in a screen-printed wrapper. I’ve got about twenty decks right now; we’re selling them for ten dollars, which is a great deal for such an awesome work of collectable and educational and trade-able art. Email me if you’d like a deck and we can arrange shipping.
