Card Flash: Untitled V2 'Reflections' Playing Cards


While the first version of 'Untitled' playing cards represents the fluid nature of art, Untitled V2 'Reflections' is a journey into the mind of an artist. The bold artwork on the mirrored card back in particular signifies that art is a reflection of self, created from one's own perception of reality.


In order for artist Adam Borderline to share his art in a way that’s personal yet obtainable, he created a raw deck with very few post processes. The original image as seen on the jokers is from a painting, then photographed and mirrored 4 times.


For the face cards, the hearts 2-10 have one pip enhanced to incorporate the back design, however, the royals and the aces have been left unaltered. Adam told Kardify that this signifies the untitled ones, born from nothing, with nothing.


The Ace of spades has been enlarged and incorporates the back design, with a faint Untitled logo beneath it. To maintain a consistent color palette of the deck, the standard blue from USPCC has been removed, leaving just red, yellow and black.


Adam's second deck does not only look good, it is also thought-provoking with many hidden meanings and messages within. Available from your favorite Murphys Magic retailers.
