Blue Skye Playing Cards USPCC
Blue Skye Playing CardsAfter over a year in the making, UK Magic Studios is proud to present the Blue Skye Playing Cards.
In 2017, an optical illusion was unleashed on the world by the creative mind of Victoria Skye. Based on a classic illusion, her take on the Café Wall went viral on Facebook and in the press. With millions of likes, shares and confused views, it was hard not to love this amazing piece of art.
Marc Lavelle from UK Magic Studios set a goal to turn this work of art into a playing card design. With Victoria's permission, the Blue Skye Playing Cards is finally ready to be enjoyed by all.
Printed on Crushed Stock from the USPCC, the deck has some awesome aspects designed for magicians and cardists alike.
Some of the features include:
- A natural one-way back design
- An anamorphic illusion built onto one of the Jokers
- A red/blue Double Back
- A custom anamorphic Ace of Spades
- A duplicate Ace of Spades with a built-in reveal
- Standard faces to be used with commercially available face-up gimmicks
- 2019 Release
This deck has a great back, and nice artwork on the Ace of Spades and the Joker (both visual illusions like the back of the deck). The duplicate Ace of Spades is good for a few different kinds of reveal. Stock is nice, and the deck shuffles well. Worth the price.
I received this as a mystery deck and am very pleased with it! I love the mystery decks! I really like the one way backs a lot. Easy enough to see yet not overly obvious. The optical illusion is fun also. I immediately performed a psychometry detection of a chosen card from the face down deck for my wife as a test. She was suitably impressed!
I recommend this deck! Nice list of features as above!
These cards have a unique fun design. The back design can play tricks on the eyes. Nice pips and easy to read. Has some really neat gaffs included with the set.
A great deck
The optical illusion on the card back is pretty cool. Everything is horizontal, but it appears diagonal. I'm not crazy about one way backs, but this one is a really fun design. I do try my best to keep em all going the same direction. The cards handle beautifully, and the design is great for fans. Several cool gaff cards included.
