Card Radar: AUREAS Playing Cards by Italian Magician Hyde


AUREAS Playing Cards is a fascinating deck inspired by the mathematical beauty of the Fibonacci Sequence and the Golden Ratio. Over a year in the making, AUREAS is produced by Italian magician Hyde (Instagram: @hydemagician) and designed by Annalisa Storari and Kiran Kuruvithadam. Golden Ratio translates to "sectio aurea" in Latin. From that the name "Aureas".


Hyde is an aeronautical engineering student and he has always been passionate about maths. With that, he wanted to create a math-themed deck, by taking inspiration from the "golden ratio", a geometrical feature that derives from math and that is found both in nature and arts. Using proportions that come from the golden ratio in arts is perceived subconsciously as beauty.


Hyde told Kardify,
I wanted to create something different from the usual, as you know my mathematical vein is always evident in the things I do, I decided to create a deck that was based on that. Also, I wanted to put a personal touch on it, so in addition to using math, I used the golden proportions to create special Rubik cubes as the Jokers, which can also be used for magic effects.

Inside, there are many secrets to discover within the design, such as the use of “phi” or the golden number and the fact that the pips have been redesigned using the golden ratio geometry.


Crafted for the magician in mind, the aces have been enlarged to be more visible for productions, and the courts are standard but slightly recolored to maintain familiarity with the spectators.


As Hyde mentioned, the jokers depict a Rubik's cube (Hyde performs mostly with cards and cube-magic), and you can see that the single "wedges" again follow proportions dictated by the golden ratio.

AUREAS Playing Cards are available NOW from assokappa.cards for €16.90.
