In February of 2017 I met Mike Cherman and world-famous Alex Bortz.
Founder of clothing brand ICNY, Mike was starting his new venture, Chinatown Market.
Alex is known for shooting some pretty sick pics. You’ll find his work on the cover of Cozy Tapes Vol 2, Big Fish Theory, and he’s famous for blasting cigs.
Mike helped me to make all the F hoodies we’ve dropped this year.
As our friendships blossomed, we knew a collab was inevitable.
“What if I drew a deck that’s like a bootleg Fontaine, like with shittily hand-drawn Fs, but not too shitty”, Alex said excitedly, as he continued to blast his cig.
The collab was born.
With skyrocketing prices on the aftermarket for collectors, incredible feel for cardists and magicians as well as intriguing designs… Fontaine Playing Cards are extremely valuable.
Fontaine: Chinatown (Yellow) Playing Cards by Zach Mueller are the 8th edition within the Fontaine line.
Fontaine: Chinatown (Yellow) colorway have a completely custom tuck box and original drawings throughout the deck.
Hand drawn by Alexander Bortz in collaboration with Mike Cherman and Zach Mueller.
Printed on Bicycle stock by the United States Playing Card Company on a stock that feels incredible for cardistry and magic.
Sought after by collectors. Only 10,000 printed. Fontaine: Chinatown (Yellow) Playing Cards sold out within days of release on the Fontaine playing card site, supplies are extremely limited.
