|Inspired by the Orion's Nebula, the Odyssey Playing Cards will transform the way you feel about magic and cardistry. This gives you a brand-new way of thinking about what a deck of cards is! |
With a shocking, minimalist, elegant, flashy, and unique style, this deck will evoke your feelings. It's perfect for fanning out, displays, cuts with one or two hands, color changes and spreads on a table. Located at the Orion's Belt, the nebula with the same name shows a wide range of lively colors and some exotic tonalities which are the result of its own stars' radiation.
Just by picking up this deck, you are transported more than 1000 light years. In addition, the back is provided with a white diagonal stripe, giving the cards symmetry in their style. This classy stripe will allow you to perform the best and most shocking displays both on table and in your hands, being able to create and discover shapes and figures hidden inside its impressive silhouette.
LIMITED EDITION (no reprints).
The drawing on the box doesn't get left behind -- it shows elegancy and minimalism with some futuristic touches which express strength and presence. It can be appreciated how the bright colors come to life in the white background without being out of place with the design. Contrasting with the back, the white stripe converts into a stripe of colors which hides the Orion's Nebula -- just like the typography on each and every one of the writing on the box.
Following this theme is an impressive group of suits where the straight lines are the protagonists that make us remember this great phrase: "The simplicity is the last sophistication."
They show pure elegancy and a lot of style, with the aces standing out above the rest of the cards. The Ace of Clubs, Spades, Hearts, and Diamonds -- each with a unique style but not one better than another. Distant but close, these four cards are the treasure inside the deck.
Lastly, we find the Jack, the Queen and the King. Protective and magnificent figures dressed up with a cloak full of colors.
This imposing and defending trio won't leave you blank if you have been able to contemplate their majestic presence in your hand. Its inside shows the suit of the figures as if it were their big, precious treasure.
Since we are talking about futuristic characteristics, we must point out the jokers. All of them are equal and subtle -- just perfect for you to perform your best routines as a magician.
Two five-pointed stars in their index bring us back to those old-school Jokers but without abandoning the forward-looking and chromatic range in the design of the Odyssey.
