The Facts of France
The goal of this project was to create a novelty item that can be sold in souvenir shops in France. What makes these playing cards special is that on each card there is a different fact about France. The facts either are intellectual, funny or just plain weird.
The Eiffel Tower is painted every 7 years.
There’s only one STOP sign in the entire city of Paris.
To this day the ‘Pope’s Palace’ has a wall that surrounds the city of Avignon.
The arrow slits were built to accommodate the archers who launched arrows using the short bow, the crossbow and the longbow.
The famous Pont d’Avignon was constructed in the 17 century.
The Catacombs in Paris is located 20 metres below the streets and is constantly 14ºC.
