Taking note from its predecessors, Orbit: Eighth Edition is inspired by the spirit of space exploration and towering Martian mountains from beyond our atmosphere.
Complete with illustrations of Nasa's Oppy and Perseverance Rovers on the tuck case, the Eighth Edition references how far we've explored space and how far we've yet to go.
Boasting a wide gamut of orangish navy colours, the back design features asteroids suspended in infinite space which revolve around Orbit's iconic 'Perfect Circle' when riffled! Look closer still and the Orbit crew can even be seen amidst Martian terrain!
Printed by The United States Playing Card Company on crushed Bee stock. Each deck arrives with a double backer, duplicate 8 of Spades and contains a hidden marking system.
Since childhood Brown was fascinated with how things worked. Over the years he developed many talents but none as prevalent as magic. Moulded by a group out of the Bay Area called the Magic Garage, Brown met magicians who were experts in their field and who imparted valuable knowledge upon him. After studying the art for 4 years, Chris invented his first algorithm (at the age of 23!) after meeting Kim Peek, the original rain man. He entitled it, “The Rainman Algorithm” which, if told a birthday, can calculate the day you were born on, the day you'll turn 65 and what day it will land on this year - all in less than 5 seconds! Needless to say, a eye for detail and thoroughness is evident in every aspect of Brown's work.
Orbit came to life through Kickstarter and exceeded it's goal on the final day of the campaign. The 'perfect circle', a staple in the series' back design, illustrates a level of ability that most people strive for but seldom arrive at because many think it doesn’t exist or is unachievable.
The circle is perfection. The circle is a mentality. Its the highest level of expertise but also acknowledges that fact that we are all continuously learning, there is no beginning and no end.
