After months of teasing on social media, magician Chris Ramsay has finally released his very own deck of playing cards.
Inspired by Memento Mori, where imagery of a skull represents the short-lived nature of all things material and a reminder of our mortality. As such, the Memento Mori deck features a unique low-poly design skull on the tuck and the card backs. According to Chris,
The low-poly design for me represents a simplistic one. The bare “bones” of 3D creation and graphic art, the first steps of animation or as I see it, the beginning of (virtual) life.
From the promo images, the Ace, Joker and courts are very stylized and modern-looking, consistent with the theme of the deck. The unique design and eye-catching colours will enhance displays and card flourishes making fans, spreads and cascades look amazing.
Pre-orders are open now and available from our favourite retailers JP Playing Cards, Collectable Playing Cards and Murphy’s Magic for $9.95. Deck will be released on 12th May.
