Re: Pratesi 2014 on Bologna 1477, cards & triumphs

I proposed you could print 26 cards on half a standard (17.5 x 22.5, English historical "medium" size) sheet of paper, by using a 3 x 9 layout. A 3x9 layout fits 27 cards, so one card worth of paper is wasted if you only wanted 26. This layout with 7 columns upright and one turned sideways:

improves on that very slightly, wasting 5/8 of a card's worth of paper instead of a full card. The cards are 3% wider: they are 2 inches (50.8 mm) wide. A modern bridge card is 2 1/4 inches (57.15 mm) wide. These cards are taller than modern cards.

I have no evidence either layout was ever used.
