The Fungi Collectible Cards | PACK 1
FUNGI COLLECTIBLE CARDS
Collector Pack 1 - A set of 12 cards
[ Available for pre-order on October 31st 2020 ]
A fun guide to recognising and discovering mushroom species!
Inspired by old timey collectible cards I created this series of mycology themed collectible cards through which you can learn about different mushroom species, card by card.
Mushroom key on the back
On the front of each card you find an artistic illustration of the species, and on the back of the card you find a guide to different facts which serve helpful when identifying the species.
The cards are for practising mushroom identification and focus on the characteristics and ecology that can be valuable knowledge when coming across the species in the wild. I decided to not include information on the edibility of a species as I find it safer this way in case this is a gift for a child. It's safer if children are guided by an adult when it comes to the subject of edibility, or that older children use the cards as a compliment to field guides on the subject.
I added the colour of spore print for each species as this can be a fun activity for both children and adults to explore!
The question mark
The little question mark on the back of the card indicates trivia about the species and can be used as little game to practice your fungi knowledge. Ask a friend to conceal the front of the card and read the trivia out loud and have you guess the species!
The illustrations are artistic and the cards are meant as a mere, fun compliment to field guides; numerous visual sources are required in order to understand what a species look like.
The Fungi Collectible Cards is an ongoing series, I am planning to release several more packs - this is the premiere card pack!
