Computer House of Cards from 1970 by Charles and Ray Eames
3.75" x 0.75" x 0.75"
The Computer House of Cards, designed by Charles and Ray Eames, date back to the IBM Pavilion they created for the 1970 World’s Fair in Osaka, Japan. The decks were created for guests as souvenirs and they were printed only once, by the Otto Maier Vertag company in West Germany. This copy is N.O.S. (new old stock) and has never been opened. There are fifty-six cards are in the deck as well as a pamphlet identifying each card.
Each image exhibits a part of the inner workings of a computer in stunning detail and clarity, in a time when the skeleton of computer technology looked much different. The Computer House of Cards stand as a record of what a 1970 pre-microchip computer looked like.
