Solitatre, by David Schlater, c.1995. A deck of 52 (unbound) playing cards with a playfully punning twist: the card faces are filled with chilling quotes from an Arkansas prisoner perhaps alluding to the many faces of schizophrenia or the random encounters we readily collate to form our individual realities. When playing a hand the seemingly dependable boundaries of reading, the card game, social decourum and mental cohesiveness quickly unfurl becoming inextriucably linked and forever blurred.
