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. From the philosophical to the artistic, the fascination, fear and appreciation of death has consistently captivated and cultivated our imagination. Many practitioners of this theory kept with them, artifacts or keepsakes which served as a reminder that the only thing certain in life, was death. Many of these items were often objects (watches, necklaces) in the shape of skulls.
The low-poly design represents a simplistic one. The bare "bones" of 3D creation and graphic art, the first steps of animation can be interpreted as the beginning of 'virtual' life.
Many historians believe that playing cards represented a deeper, esoteric meaning, that each suit was one of the four seasons. Each card within a suit was one of the thirteen phases of the moon. The fifty-two cards in a deck would represent the fifty-two weeks of the year and together, this would represent just one year of your life.
A constant reminder of our fleeting time on earth.
"This deck is my Memento Mori." - Chris Ramsay

The cards are designed from scratch and 100% custom. The back design features the motion-like bending VIEWS dots with a mint undertone to create the illusion. The face cards have custom pips, and the courts have Pantone metallic inks.
Designed by Yves Krähenbühl

Gemini è un mazzo immaginario da casinò, ispirato a preziosi mazzi di carte classici come Jerry's Nugget e Dunes Casino.
Creato dal designer di carte estone Toomas Pintson, Gemini è stato creato per assomigliare a un mazzo vintage che potreste trovare in un vecchio magazzino di Las Vegas degli anni '70.
Combinando un design nostalgico degli anni '70 e tecniche di stampa moderna di alta qualità della United States Playing Card Company, Gemini è perfetto per chi ama e colleziona carte da gioco vintage, ma desidera anche un mazzo di alta qualità per una gestione ottimale.<br /> <br /> La quarta edizione di Gemini è disponibile in nero e presenta dettagli dorati in inchiostro metallico su tutto il mazzo.
Stampato dalla USPCC su cartoncino thin crushed.
Inoltre, ogni mazzo è stato tagliato tradizionalmente.
Edizione limitata di 2871 mazzi.
The idea for the back design was inspired by a combination of different decks. Some of these include Orbits, Virts and Memento Mori.
The designs in the top left and bottom right corner create a beautiful display when fanning the cards, sure to please aficionados of Cardistry.
The court cards have also been completely redesigned, as almost every deck has traditional court cards. These uniquely designed court cards give the deck a fresh look.
The Jokers are identical, as there are some strong magic tricks requiring the use of two identical Jokers.
This box is a thing of beauty. It has an intricately detailed design, highlighted by the use of gold foil throughout the box, even on the inner flap. Instead of printing the black background on standard white card stock, we managed to find black card stock and print on that instead. As you will see, this adds to the high-quality appearance of the box used for Implicit Playing Cards.
The inner flap is printed in gold foil, displaying an 'illuminati-esque' eye in the center, which represents deception.
With all the thought that went into Implicit Playing Cards, we are sure that you will truly enjoy this marvelous deck.
The perfect deck for Cardistry!
Made in bright red colors to catch the eye. Great patterns emerge during flourishes. Wonderful feel. Welcome to Limited Edition Mako Red Playing Cards - you'll love this deck!

Time is the most precious gift. It lets us imagine, and drives us to create.
The Memento Mori Blue is a celebration of life, a sign of what inspires us, and a constant reminder that our time here is fleeting. It is a symbol of our eternal defiance against our own impermanence. It is a design reminding us to create, to imagine, and to live.
The low-poly design is simple and post-modern. Yet, beneath the clean veneer of elementary shapes, lies a complex shading arrangement meant to breathe life and dimensionality into an otherwise flat image. The prevailing blue hue throughout each custom card embodies man's ubiquitous reflection on mortality. This marvelous deck allows you to make a statement.
Many historians believe that playing cards represented a deeper, esoteric meaning, that each suit was one of the four seasons. Each card within a suit was one of the thirteen phases of the moon. The Fifty-two cards in a deck would represent fifty-two weeks of the year and together, this would represent just one year of your life.
