Back in the halcyon, pre-Internet days of desktop computing, solitaire was the gem of the ubiquitous juggernaut that was Windows '98. It provided hours of distraction, uncomplicated glee and head-to-desk frustration in an era where "angry birds" were little more than the subject of traumatizing horror films. With his latest project, graphic designer Evan Roth has not only recreated that iconic game, he's made it real— producing a limited run of actual playing cards inspired by one of the decks that appeared in the computer game.
You can get your own set, printed on classic Bicycle playing cards, for $20 from Cooper-Hewitt. There were only 500 made, however, so if you want to get your digital nostalgia on, act fast.
