Cards come from paper. Paper comes from trees. Cardistry.
Designed by Dan and Dave Buck, the official 2019 Cardistry-Con playing cards are inspired by old-school analogue graphics and feature a retro monogram design in a military green colour-way.
Developed specifically for cardistry, the unique back design creates a fun, animated optical illusion when in motion and is perfectly suited to spin moves and other rotational flourishes.
Hand-assembled inside a letterpress-printed tuck box and sealed with a wraparound label, each deck of Cardistry-Con 2019 includes a custom Ace of Spades expertly designed to include the peaks of Portland, the venue of CC19. Court cards are standard in appearance but colours have been adjusted to fit the theme of this deck with muted yellows, soft reds and camo-green detailing.
Limited to 5,000 and printed by The United States Playing Card Company on Art of Play's trademark thin stock, with vegetable-based ink on eco-friendly paper harvested from sustainable forests.
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.
