The Maxwell Library will open Emmanuel Jose's "Clipped Wings" Exhibition on Tuesday, Sept. 3. Jose decided to use his longtime fascination with playing cards to set a personal challenge: create a single giant paper-cut card each week. This challenge was done using traditional paper-cutting techniques and transformed the suites and pips of a standard deck into an imaginative display of our favorite birds. Cockatoos, pelicans and songbirds each have been rendered into the Jack of Clubs, the Three of Spades and the Two of Diamonds.
