Kickstarter: Clouded Paper Playing Cards by Eliot Slevin



A long time coming, a deck of playing cards created by Elion Slevin, is currently seeking funds on Kickstarter. Eliot is a New Zealand-based cardist well known for the viral cardistry video, "Run Rabbit" and was the inaugural International Cardsitry Open champion.


The deck, Clouded Paper is a rather unusual deck of cards -  no two backs are the same. Every card is unique, yet tied together as a deck with a marbled paper aesthetic. On creating his own custom deck, Eliot told Kardify,
I never wanted to make a standard deck of cards. After lots of experimentation and inspiration, I really started to love the idea of a deck with unique backs. However, all the cards have to 'feel' as if they're from one deck - there needs to be a central theme. I realized texture could provide this - allowing a uniform aesthetic with variations and imperfections between the cards.

With such strong variation coming from the backs, Eliot felt the faces needed to be neutral and expected to balance the deck. With that, the face cards are standard American, with a few surprises. The deck is packaged in a neutral, minimal design tuck box.

Clouded Paper Playing Cards will be printed by the USPCC and pledge will start at $15 on Kickstarter.
