Ryan McGinness’ Blacklight Nudie Cards
Ryan McGinness and The Standard have released the Blacklight Nudie Cards, a full deck of poker-sized playing cards designed by McGinness and based on vintage nudie cards.
The cards are best enjoyed under blacklights that emit only a frequency in the invisible range of 350-370 nm. The fluorescent inks used in the printing of these cards absorb this ultraviolet light and then re-emit it almost instantaneously. Each card in the deck of 56 has a unique face designed by the artist.
The deck is being sold exclusively at The Shops at all four Standard hotels in NY, LA, and Miami as well as online for $35.00 per set.
