Seven months in the making and produced by Art of Play in collaboration with Los Angeles based creatives, TRÜF, Messymod playing cards are born from a love of geometry, pattern, white space and Bauhaus-inspired design.
Although the thought process behind Messymod is disordered and loose, the deck possesses an organised, balanced style by using simple shapes and a limited colour palette.
Face and spot cards combine minimal, stylized graphics in a delightfully plain (yet surprisingly weird) manner that means each can stand alone as an individual work of art, possessing it's own unique presence and identity.
Packaged in a premium letterpress-printed tuck box both inside and out, this completely custom and quirky deck of cards has been printed by the United States Playing Card Co. on Art of Play's trademark thin stock preferred by cardists.
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.
