52 Pick-Up is an art book featuring a collection of found playing cards turned to fine art. Jessica Darke wrote, photographed, and art directed 52 Pick-Up. Jessica’s collection of discarded cards totals over 150. The cards have been found all over the world.


Jessica’s goal with 52 Pick-Up is to remind her audience to stay present, keep their eyes open, and always take time for some play. The cards themselves are credited with muse.


52 Pick-Up debuted at the 2020 LA Art Show.
