Kings Playing Cards in White By Peter McKinnon and Daniel Madison, now available from KardsGeek

http://shop.kardsgeek.com/kings-playing-cards-in-white-by-peter-mckinnon-and-daniel-madison/

In 2012, Peter McKinnon and Daniel Madison collaborated on a video project in the dry lake-beds of Las Vegas, not quite realising at that time such a simple meeting of two creative minds would lead them to The KINGS deck.

Whenever Peter and Daniel work together, waves are made and a unique creative vessel is opened. The Kings deck is the ultimate representation of their joint creative forces.

Peter and Daniel spent a lot of time brainstorming, designing and creating their ideal deck of cards. Cards that would be fit for Kings.

Peter and Daniel were meticulous and scrupulous with their requirements for the deck. They tested numerous stocks and finishes until they found and created a unique Kings finish and stock. The cards were traditionally cut to further advance gambling techniques, they are sturdy yet flexible enough for cardistry and sleight-of-hand.

They wanted a box that would look like a block of gold – direct from the Kings share – with a deck of cards perfectly designed to cater for both minimalistic beauty and a stunning design.

Peter and Daniel decided to make the Kings deck a secret weapon right out of the box. Readily stacked in Mnemonica AND fully marked so that not only would the performer be able to identify every singe card in the deck by the back alone (see http://hwst.ellusionist.com/KINGSareMARKED.pdf), but also have the ability perform instant Mnemonica miracles. They added a double-backer and two unique and personalised jokers, and on top of that, they lost the ad-card and replaced it with an Angle Z Gaff card.

Two years in the making, Peter and Daniel returned to Las Vegas to celebrate their creation and film a heist that would represent their collaborative brilliance.

When you purchase the KINGS deck, you will get a PDF with instructions on how to learn the markings on the back of the cards.

This is, the KINGS deck.

ART OF THE KINGSMEN

As part of the campaign for KINGS, Peter & Daniel sent out a select number of decks to our favourite Instagram users across the world. Decks were sent through the States, Canada, France, Scotland, even as far as Slovakia. These users then posted their artistic brilliance that captured the KINGS brand, with the utmost precision and creativity.

Tomas Hlavaty – All the way from Slovakia, Tomas is an exceptional artist with some wild penmanship and typography skills. He is well known for painting on playing cards and having an incredible precision in doing so. Tomas can be found on Instagram at tomashlavaty

Adam Kirby – Otherwise known as ‘playingcardart’ in the Instagram community, takes some truly remarkable photographs. One of the best photographers around shooting our subject matter. It was a no brainer to get a deck of KINGS in his hands the second they rolled off the press. How he managed to not get the deck covered in what appears to be black tar is impressive, to say the least!

Chris Ramsay – A fellow Canadian to our team up north! Chris is a unique and creative force constantly pumping out meaningful, and thought provoking art with playing cards. Typically, there are too many photos of his we enjoy to pick just one. He can be found on Instagram at chrisramsay52

Benoit Pervier – All the way from France, Benoit constantly pumps out imagery that makes us laugh, think and marvel. Often clever, or a play on the actual name of the deck / cards, Benoit has an instantly recognizable style and we are thrilled to see the cards in his hands. he can be found on Instagram at benoitpervier

Jeremy Griffith – Known as ‘Lost Angelus’ online -The master of levitation and ‘floatation’ pictures. This guy will make anything float – digitally of course 😉 Aside taking some wild floating shots of decks of cards, Jeremy adds a creative twist with making those cards float in patterns and orientations that only the privy understand. He can be found on Instagram at lost_angelus

Skull & Bones Playing Cards

Skull & Bones Playing Cards now available from KardsGeek

Check them out here http://shop.kardsgeek.com/skull-bones-playing-cards/

First released over 100 years ago! These limited edition playing cards are available once again in both red and black with Cambric (embossed) feel.

Produced by the Conjuring Arts Research Center and printed by the United States Playing Card Co.

This deck is completely sold out at the Conjuring Arts Research Centre in New York.

Conjuring Arts produced this card off the back of discovering a single skull and bones card, apparently dating back 100 years. They say, “To our knowledge this is the only card like this that is known to exist and we don’t think any other collector has another single card, let alone a whole deck of them! We found the subject matter fun and up to date for today’s tastes so we had the art redrawn by hand and printed at USPCC”

Are they badass? Most definitely!

Bee Erdnaseum Commemorative Playing Cards available now from KardsGeek

Bee Erdnaseum Commemorative Playing Cards

Bee Erdnaseum Commemorative Playing Cards available now from KardsGeek!

These playing cards are offered to the public in commemoration of the enduring mystery of The Expert at the Card Table and its author, S.W. Erdnase. Among the men whose names have been discovered as anagrammatic equivalents to the pseudonymous writer, W.E. Sanders emerges as perhaps the most compelling. A longtime card player and a student of magic, Sanders was the kind of person who took half-a-dozen decks with him on a camping trip. Skilled in deception, he rearranged the letters in his name, tore pages from his diaries and snuck out of his home for late night visits to high-rolling private clubs. A mining engineer and professional writer by trade, Sanders was eccentric and brilliant, offering no justification and seeking no credit for the knowledge he imparted. But whatever the result of his actions may be, if they inspire lovers of card entertainment and legerdemain, then they will have provided the primary motive of card table artifice, as it needs the mystery.

Take a step back in time, when Erdnase was alive. The Bee® Squeezers box is an exact reproduction of an early 1900’s classic. The Bee® Worm back playing cards inside have been imprinted with an original Scott Kim ambigram that says, “S.W. Erdnase” or “W.E. Sanders” when turned end-for-end. Traditionally cut and printed by the US Playing Card Company on premium paper using their casino quality web press. Distributed in association with the Conjuring Arts Research Center exclusively for Erdnaseum.
