"Tactility Training Blankets" is a limited edition print and memory card game by Howie Sneider and Kiki Sciullo.

A limited edition of 100 prints. Sized to fit a standard 10” x 10” frame, the artwork measures approximately 9.5” high by 9.5” wide. The archival print was created by Tiny Showcase and ships with a corresponding certificate of authenticity. The archival artwork has been printed on a heavy 290gsm natural white print making paper made from 90% bamboo fibres and 10% cotton.

Memory game, 2nd edition: The boxed memory game contains 16 heavy coated cardstock game pieces and a guide card.  Please note: the game edition is currently backordered and will ship in approximately one week.

The original piece is a multimedia quilt.  From the artists: 
"Howie’s quilt exists in two equal but defined states; As hexagonal blankets and rectangular folded masks that reveal hidden characters. They are a playful reflection on nationalism and cultural branding inspired by nature. 

Kiki’s drawings flatten the sculptures into icons creating a unique memory game experience. Players must match each piece in their dissimilar form, finding the sameness within the diverse cast of characters."

The print is available hand-framed in maple with archival mat and glass by Vermont's Joel Taplin of Taplin MFG. Framed artwork is archivally matted and hung with UV-protective glass. The hand-made frames are made from locally-milled wood with inlaid splines in each corner for added strength. Please allow three weeks for the completion of your custom, hand-made frame.
