Galactik Trading Cards are collectable cards printed with images of work from over 100 artists from the fields of visionary art, magic realism, contemporary surrealism, fantasy art and related genres.
Some of the artists are among the most recognized names in their genres, other are new or less well known. The initiative’s website has galleries of the cards, arranged in sets, though most of the newer ones can be purchased individually as well as in sets or by subscription.
The images in the galleries are linked to larger versions, which is particularly advantageous given the extraordinary level of detail in some of the images. You need to hover your mouse over the thumbnail images to see a tooltip style popup of the artist’s name.
There is even a “Holodeck” set of lenticular cards, each of which contains several images revealed as the card is viewed from different angles.
The link for “Collective” in the top navigation goes to a page with a list of the artists and links to their websites.
