Alexander Girard
Playing cards.
Braniff International Airlines.
Circa 1968.

A fantastic set of playing cards designed by Alexander Girard as part of his extensive work for Braniff Airlines. Each card includes an illustration by Girard relating to an english phrase. Spanish and Portuguese translations are included for the international jet set to use in conversation or as a learning tool.

Very good vintage condition! Minor edge wear to the box. Missing one Joker.

High resolution scans of all the cards are available for inspection. Please convo me if you are interested.

About Alexander Girard:
While best known for his textile work with the Herman Miller company, Alexander Girard was a versatile designer fluent in many design media. In addition to textiles, Girard designed an expansive identity and collateral system for Braniff Airlines, where Emilio Pucci was also contracted to design airline staff uniforms. In 1961, Girard was hired to design the iconic La Fonda del Sol restaurant in New York City. He also worked with Georg Jensen and John Deere, among other clients.

Girard was an avid collector of Folk Art, and his collection, much of which was an inspiration to his own work as a designer, is now housed at the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Girard's work is included in the permanent collections of many of the world's top museums.
