A toss of the dice will never abolish chance. Take advantage of Jeff Encke’s “fire sale” of this amazing poem published on playing cards. Jeff writes:

During the spring and summer of 2004, I wrote, designed, and printed a book of poetry on a deck of stylized, casino-quality playing cards. Design-wise, I took my inspiration from the multitudes of art card decks I found on the Internet from artists throughout the world. The wealth of deck variety and obvious intelligence and creativity that went into the design of the cards I found astounded me. Hoping simply to approach the level of quality I had seen, working collaboratively with a friend in Boston on the design, I took four months to research and create all 55 card faces.

Might I suggest that this is one of the best ways you might spend $7.50 on a book of poetry. But then, if you’re reading this, I’m pretty sure you’ll be as excited as I was. (I bought two decks and have been shuffling one. The other is still in the plastic wrap.)
