Fig. 25 has been designed from the ground up as a detailed tribute to S. W. Erdnase and the infamous Expert at the Card Table book. Even the tuck box is uniquely wrapped to look like a replica of the book itself!
The back design uses Expert at the Card Table's illustration found in Fig. 25's lesson on the bottom deal, the sleight which Erdnase states is 'the most important artifice one could master with a deck of playing cards'. Surrounding the illustration are tasteful floral graphics and acorns that can be found on the cover of the book's original 1902 print.
Each deck arrives with custom Jokers featuring famous quotes from the book and a beautiful Ace of Spades. The faces of each card feature extracts from Expert at the Card Table, scanned at high resolution and carefully placed for optimum appeal. It's like the shape of a card has been directly cut from the pages of the book!
Traditionally cut and printed by The United States Playing Card Company on Bee stock.
