The Computer House of Cards, designed by Charles and Ray Eames, dates back to the IBM Pavilion at the 1970 World’s Fair in Osaka, Japan. They are tremendously rare, as they were created as souvenirs for guests, and were printed only once. This makes the Computer House of Cards an extremely desirable collector’s item for Eames enthusiasts and technology buffs around the world.
Each image exhibits a part of the inner workings of a computer in stunning detail and clarity, in a time when the skeleton of computer technology looked much different. A time before the microchip was invented. Cards are the perfect frame to capture a record of what a 1970 pre-microchip computer looked like.
