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