Editorial Reviews


"Though its title refers to your average set of cards, Shuffle is filled with photographic images taken from everyday life and decorated with a series of musical notes. Like John Cage's chance compositions, Marclay's set of 75 cards will entertain its owner with any number of musical revelations." -- Laura Allsop & Ruth Lewy --ArtReview

"...Shuffle preserves a feeling of immediacy, of Marclay stumbling upon these fragments of music lurking everywhere in the world." -- Martha Schwendener --BookForum

"The sole rule of the game: Shuffle the deck and draw cards to create your own improv musical score. The best part? With an endless number of combinations and sequences, no two ditties will be alike." --WWD Scoop

"Marclay's new photography book, 'Shuffle,' packaged as an oversize deck of cards, is an invitation to play along with his view of aural and visual potentialities. Literally." -- Lynne Heffly --Los Angeles Times

The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more

Format: Cards
Great example of yet another false market value as one, very confused Amazon seller sets a price at an absolutely ridiculous amount ($299) for their "Shuffle" card set, and subsequently the other sellers blindly use that price as a base for their own sales price, with approximately zero research going into the thought. Offered for sale here is a fairly common Aperture publication, readily available on that famous auction site right now for less than $75 sealed as new. So, therefore, if one wishes to patronize Amazon.com, one must pay 6 times (or more) the fair market value of the piece. Caveat Emptor, friends.

Anyway, it's a lovely set of photographs on card stock of music staff and notation-based public design applications in many contexts.
