Jack White's New Las Vegas Gig Poster Is One Of Rarest Produced
Poster size deck of playing cards by Chicago designer Matthew Jacobson is a world's first
Each deck of 18 x 24 double-sided silkscreened poster size playing cards contain the standard 52 cards plus 2 jokers and 6 other variants for a total of 60 cards per deck. The jacks were drawn to resemble Jack White, and the kings take on the guise of Nicola Tesla.
This concert poster is the latest in a series of inventive gig posters Jacobson has created for White. Jacobson is also the designer behind the "Triple Decker Poster" and "The Coolest Gig Poster Ever".
"My approach to designing concert posters is to find a perfect union between the musician and the concert's location, with each taking on attributes of the other," said Jacobson. "In the case of this particular poster, designing a custom deck of Jack White playing cards seemed a good bet for Las Vegas!"
As an added Vegas element, two full decks of the poster size playing cards were dealt from the merch table on the first night of White's show. The following day, White drew the 5 of Diamonds on his @officialjackwhitelive (https://www.instagram.com/
Concert fans have been buzzing since White posted about this project on his social networks (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter) just prior to this first show. 21 images and the video can be downloaded via this link.
