Inspired by the forests and snowy mountains of Northern California, Antler Playing Cards by Dan and Dave Buck pay homage to the great outdoors.
Originally printed in 2015, the back design features twin bucks surrounded by foliage and greenery that is reminiscent of Yosemite National Park.
Each deck handles wonderfully and features slightly modified court cards and a deep maroon colour-way for all Red cards. The Ace of Spades features a noble buck whose antlers are interwoven amongst herbaceous ornamentation. Two non-identical jokers are included which feature the Antler name and a 'Dan and Dave Approved' graphic.
The tuck-case features embossing and metallic accents all around with a unique bar code which is shaped to form mountainous peaks.
This deck is as at home during formal performances as it is an evening around the campfire.
Double backer and blank face cards included - designed by Tom Lane and printed by United States Playing Card Company.
Twins brothers Dan and Dave Buck are perhaps best known for their contributions to the art of cardistry.
Masters of sleight of hand, the Buck twins have released a plethora of instructional videos and DVDs which not only led to the increase in popularity of cardistry, but also made them two of the most influential people in the magic and cardistry community.
In 2013, off the back of a becoming wildly successful producers of luxury playing cards, they founded Art of Play. Based in the United States, Art of Play curates a collection of wonderfully unique playing cards, puzzles, games and amusements.
Epiphanies await the curious mind.
