What makes this series special is its ease of use - often it is far more convenient to have just one card sitting on your shelf in front of you instead of having to keep a heavy painting book with many pages in place on your shelf and to risk damaging pages by bending them.
There are different decks of cards in this series - twelve so far - each of them focusing on a special object or a specific group of objects.
