Visionaire 21. Deck of Cards/The Diamond Issue

New York: Visionaire. 1997.

Limited edition of 3000. Dark blue vinyl case with a pack of large playing cards inside. All inside a white card box. The images on the cards were each designed by individual art directors including Fabien Baron, Mario Testino (who photographed John Galliano as the King of Diamond while Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin photographed Iman as the Queen. The 3,000 issues of Visionaire 21 were packaged in individual jewellery boxes, each with its own lock and key, and offered a real diamond for one lucky subscriber. Sadly no diamond with this one. And it is missing the key but otherwise, a very nice example of Visionaire's louche and stylish work.
