Murphy's Magic

Memento Mori


Remember your mortality.

Stemming from the medieval Latin theory and practice of reflection on mortality, it has been a ubiquitous part of human culture for centuries. The fascination, fear and appreciation of death has consistently captivated our imagination.

Many historians believed that playing cards represented a deeper, esoteric meaning and that each suit was one of the four seasons. Each card within a suit was therefore one of the thirteen phases of the moon and the fifty-two cards in a deck would represent the fifty-two weeks of the year. Together, this would represent just one year of your life. A constant reminder of our fleeting time on earth.

The tuck case and back design of Memento Mori adopt a low-poly, minimalist aesthetic which in literal terms is the bare "bones" of 3D creation and graphic art.

This is a stunning deck that will make your flourishes instantly more impactful and adds a sense of mystery to any magic performance.
