Kickstarter: Buskers by Erik Mana



[Update] Buskers are now LIVE on Kickstarter. Don't miss out!

Erik Mana has produced some of the most beautiful playing cards over the last few years. From his original Oracle Playing cards to his recently completed Sybil campaign on Kickstarter, each deck is a wonderfully intricate work of art.

Erik's latest project, Busker's is a slight departure from what we've grown used to from the Canadian artist. Inspired by street artists and magicians, Buskers is an homage to the many talented street performers we so enjoy.
"I was once a busker early in my magic career. I fell in love with the culture and the people.  The Busker deck wass created in honor of all the amazing street artists that perform all over the world. Each court card represents a particular type of busker from the magician, juggler, musician, mime, contortionist, and many others."

Buskers will be printed by the United States Playing Card Co. on their Air Cushion Finish. The decks will feature an intricate back design set on a borderless edge in two colors. The Luna Deck (Dark) and the Sol Deck (Light). Taking some time to look at the back design closely will reveal its true composition.

The decks will also feature hand illustrated court cards, Jokers and a special diptych honoring street performers. The deck has a beautiful "Vintage" look to it that will appeal to both collectors and working professionals.


Buskers is scheduled to launch on Kickstarter on February 21st at 10:00AM EST. 

The campaign will include some attractive stretch goals, special add-ons including a link to Teespring for a T-Shirt purchases.

Erik has never disappointed his fans, and I'm sure Buskers will continue that trend, it's nice to see a fresh approach by Erik that is inspired by so many hard working performers.

We wish Erik the best of luck and don't forget to mark your calendars for Buskers!
