Bea Nettles: Write Right: Card Deck
Deck of cards
George Eastman Museum, Richard and Ronay Menschel Library
This deck of cards is related to the books Nettles creates using photographs of surnames on tombstones. The cards highlight funny and often poignant observations about the English language—antonyms, homonyms, surnames doubling as occupations, or famous pairings, such as salt and pepper or Fred and Ginger (evoking iconic dance partners Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers).
