Summary of Project:

Playing the hand is a diary. Each week I laid objects on my grandmother’s card table to represent the happenings of the week just gone (the ‘cards’ I’d been dealt).

Each week I took a photograph.

Each week I wrote some words to go along with the image (and to jog my memory). These prompts can be read on my website.

This publication is a full deck 52 cards/52 weeks and includes:
