Those are wonderful, but how many artists designed each card?

Stranger & Stranger also curated a custom-made deck with each card having a unique piece of art from various artists.

The cards seem to have 10-11 entries each, on average.
I’m not sure I like the idea of getting hundreds of people to work for free on a product that will be sold commercially. The contest page says 3 of the artists get prizes worth a few hundred bucks each. The other 51 “winners” get a deck of cards, and that’s it.


That’s a very good point, I hadn’t looked at the labor angle. How can ten artists draw one playing card? Committee?
