Heritage Resource Preservation playing cards
In 2003, there was a scandal about looting and destruction of ancient Mesopotamian artifacts in Bagdad. In 2007, Laurie W. Rush began a project to distribute to U.S. forces some 40,000 packs of playing cards depicting historic ruins in Iraq and Afghanistan. As she stated, “The goal for the Heritage Resource Preservation Playing Cards is to foster CPP awareness and prevent damage to ancient sites and monuments during military operations and post-conflict reconstruction.”. This project funded by the U.S Department of Defense is part of a cultural heritage awareness program. Tracy Wager, a graphic artist from the Center for Environmental Management of Military Lands worked with Zeidler to design the cards.
