Delta playing cards #03675

Delta playing cards are a modern art concept deck invented by Professor Manzoom R. Ali, an anti-war campaigner, poet and artist operating under the company name of Artology International. Professor Ali, who has published several literary works, is originally from Iraq but currently resides in UK. The deck was created around 1988, and printed in Germany. According to the information card accompanying the pack, the cards are one of three games produced by the company: The design of these playing cards has been inspired by Sir Isaac Newtons concept of the Delta and by the work of Picasso on Cubism. Instead of depicting human figures, the courts of all four suits have the same primary design, while each suit has a different deltoid design in the center of the card. Each ace has a single image based upon the traditional English suit index but modified in Professor Alis own Deltaism style. The deck was produced in an olive-green and in a burgundy based colour background. Cubism (Fr. Cubisme) - modernist trend in art, especially in painting, which originated in the early XX century and is characterized by the use of pointed Geometrized conventional forms, the desire to "crush" the real objects on the stereometric primitives. Cubism - is the direction in painting, characterized by the desire to highlight the structure of the volume, show the subject from different points of view, the generalization forms of objects to simple geometric forms, the division into components. The emergence of cubism is traditionally dated to 1906-1907 and was associated with the work of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. The term "cubism" appeared in 1908, after the art critic Louis Vaucelles called the new pictures of Marriage "cubic cranky." (Fr. bizarreries cubiques).
