Card Gear is our monthly feature dedicated to discovering new inventory, setup and accessories used everyday by card designers, cardists, magicians and collectors. The concept originated from the popular social media site, Instagram: #passthepockets. Whenever one of these hashtags come up on the social news feed, there's always something new to discover, no matter who that person is.
This month we have the EDC of Randy Butterfield, founder of Midnight Cards and designer behind Imperial, ORNATE, Draconian, Bowl-A-Rama, Grinders and more! Randy always brainstorm on new Deck ideas whenever he and his family travel up to Michigan, to visit his parents, who live out in the country. According to Randy, the absence of computer, Internet and Netflix are great ways to alleviate normal distractions at night.
This is his travel gear he always takes up with him. Reference books vary, depending on the theme and style he want to go with (the Ancient Rome book in the photo is one of a handful or reference books he brought up the last trip).
