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
Our new deck, Tangram Playing Cards, is a beautiful tribute to one of the most popular dissection puzzles in the world. Used as entertainment as early as the Song Dynasty, these delightful shapes create a multitude of memorable designs.
Each card back features 2 koi fish swimming in an aqua blue green pool of geometric shapes. The trailing water is a perfect swirl for flourishing or a centerpiece for predictions.
The custom pips and court cards creatively utilize the Tangram shapes to create a unique design for each of the card faces.
The tuck features the traditional Tangram dissection puzzle in a diamond placed on a grey and white background, hovering over a horizon of green hues. The tuck side pays tribute to the Tangram puzzle known as THE SEVEN STONES OF WISDOM.

We are excited to offer Red Stripe Playing Cards, from LA-based designer and magician, Omar Renfro. This is his debut deck. Inspired by the work of Pablo Picasso, each card was hand-drawnbefore being digitally cleaned-up and presented in its final rendering shown here.
The design comes from the concept of wanting a bold solid stripe in the middle to accent the dynamic movements in cardistry.
Those seeking to WOW an audience with flourishes and fans that are beautiful to behold will be thrilled with this deck.
"The deck is fully customized from the geometric back design to the custom arrangement of the spot cards, right down to the custom court cards and Jokers. Even the tuck interior is customized!"

This deck is so versatile, it's like many decks in one!
De'vo's playing cards have appeared on many television shows including Stan Lee's Super Humans television show! De'vo's cards are in the homes of celebrities and Hollywood superstars and used by magicians, card players and card artists around the world. Some of his decks sell out just minutes after release.
De'vo created the world's first playing card deck for card flourishing, and the world's very first Cardistry decks! De'vo's special design concepts are groundbreaking and lead the world in functional design. De'vo has now taken his design genius to another planet with this LIMITED EDITION groundbreaker!
WTF Cardistry is a very specialized deck for card manipulators, cardists, magicians, XCMers and card collectors. This deck was designed to change its appearance depending on how it is manipulated and also was secretly designed to be able to SPELL almost any word!
It can look like a WHITE DECK when fanned from left to right.
A BLACK DECK when fanned from the other side.
The cards are "reversible," allowing you to choose if you want the fan to look like a black deck, or white deck, or you can weave them into each other for some crazy results!
The back design is De'vo's Twin Tip Signature design, allowing for multiple patterns depending on how it is fanned.
As if all of this weren't enough, De'vo added something that has never been done on a "Cardistry" deck before! He secretly integrated a "Spelling" deck into the face design. This allows you to spell almost ANY word or sentence with just 1 deck as long as it doesn't have more than 2 of each letter.
Yes, you are probably scratching your head right now like WTF??? - and to that we'd say EXACTLY! Unlike other spelling decks, this isn't just one big letter in the middle of the card -- there are letters flipped both ways so you don't have to worry about the direction. They are also white on one side and black on the other, allowing you to use the colors as punctuation, capitals, or to spell words inside of words. They are also off-set, so you can spread the cards over, which will shield the bottom letters, allowing much better reading of what you have spelled.
IMAGINE being able to do card flourishing and manipulation and SPELL words as you do it! Or doing a magic trick and being able to spell out a spectator's card! There is also a Blank Shatter card, an exclamation point and a question mark for phrasing.
There has NEVER EVER been anything in the card world with as much design and functionality as WTF CARDISTRY! The possibilities of this deck are endless! What will you spell?

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.
Create, imagine, inspire... Memento Mori
