Gaia Playing Cards
Sold as a set or individually
In the 1970s, James Lovelock's groundbreaking Gaia Hypothesis proposed that our planet could be viewed as a single, self-regulating system, in which animals shape their environment and vice versa. His metaphor forever changed how we see our world, with every plant and animal forming a vital, interlocking piece of the whole.
Now UK illustrator Ben Sinclair celebrates these interconnections with his magnificent and colorful GAIA Playing Cards, packed with exquisite animal sketches and "biome-themed" suits. Slip through the thick growth of the rainforest, sleep beneath the stars of the savanna, or shiver in the tundra as you watch a snow leopard... This is your world. The world of GAIA.
