IOTA is a deck of regulation playing cards by Joe Doucet that dallies with the idea: how much you can take away while still maintaining a playable deck?

Simple geometric symbols are reductive versions of hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades. While it’s necessary to mark the back of regulation playing cards, Joe’s done so with a minimal diagonal line instead of the overly ornamental versions used at your granny’s bridge club. LOVE. So. Much.
