Two playing card decks with works by female artists have been produced by the Konstkortleken Association (Art Card Deck).
This playing card deck has been realized by initiative of Kerstin Diedrich, through courtesy of Ulla Nordenskjöld, Bitte Richardson, Lea Ahmed-Jussilainen and Eva Trolin who also have compiled the material for print.
The idea is an extension of Kerstin Diedrich's and Barbro Werkmästers' wish that more people should learn about the artistry of women.
Profits from sales of the deck are to form a fund to support women's future art projects. The Fund is managed by Swedish bank Ekobanken.
This art deck has come about through the initiative of Kerstin Diedrich in collaboration with Veronika Brovall and Sandra Schmidt.
The theme for the German deck is art, women and democracy.
