The Swiss Deck is part of the World Tour Set series of playing cards. 

Inspired by the iconic travel posters around 1902, this retro-back design advertises the Swiss alps, in saturated colors and bold text, alluring the beholder to explore the treacherous but beautiful scenery Switzerland offers. 

More about the World Tour Set... 

The World Tour Card Deck Set is a presentation "trunk" of five bespoke packs of playing cards, each highlighting a different country and culture from the turn of the last century. The World Tour Card Deck Set is housed in a miniature travel trunk, replete with decals from the far-off places to which the cards have traveled, to be in your collection. 

The set comes with all five decks of cards in the series, and when all five decks are lined up, they create a map of the world highlighting the five featured countries: France, Switzerland, Mongolia, China, and Egypt. 

But the World Tour Deck Set is more than just a trunk of playing cards: it's a story. The Great Ezra, a turn-of-the-century magician, traveled the globe and sent these decks back to you, each one with a note. All the ephemera: handwritten notes written on railcar stationery, coasters, tickets, and hotel paper... are included, to help immerse you in the spirit of the turn of the century, and how Ezra might have obtained each special deck. 

The decks themselves are gorgeous, with iconography and hidden elements from the countries, culture, and time from which they've come. All printed by the Expert Playing Card Company, the cards have a durable, smooth finish ideal for shift work, gambling material, and sleights. Each deck has an extremely limited run of 1500 decks, and no more World Tour Deck Sets will ever be printed. 

Note: This product is a single deck of cards. See the World Tour Set for the full collection.

Great design!

This is definitely one of the better decks of the Vanishing Inc World Tour Set. I really like the design of the backs. This one way back design would be great for cardistry. I also like the style of the court cards, which are vocabulary words of icons of Switzerland. The only reason I docked a star is because I'm not 100% sold on the handling. The cards feel a little too stiff and don't handle as well as I would have hoped. This also doesn't come with any gaffs or anything. This is probably most suitable for gameplay, possibly cardistry over magic.

The Swiss entry in the World Tour Set

The Switzerland deck is part of the lavish "World Tour Set", a collection of five decks that celebrate exotic locations around the world.

The tuck box makes use of a simplified colour palette which emphasizes the signature view we've all come to associate with Switzerland: the Alps. The side of the tuck box adds to the focus on breath-taking Swiss scenery with the words: "Majestic Mountains, Peace on Earth!" Tucked safely inside our impressive view of the mountains are 54 cards.

The pips employ a very bold red and black, with a very matter of fact and distinct shape. It's immediately that we've left the art-world of France behind, and are now concerned with being practical and down-to-earth - even when our head is in the clouds while walking on mountains. The back of each card is emblazoned with a one-way artwork scene that matches what you see on the back of the tuck box. Apparently in this country, wherever you look, you see mountains.

The court cards do a good job of reminding us that we're in Switzerland, because they feature various elements typically of the culture we see here. Instead of personages, our Kings/Queens/Jacks each feature the name of a Swiss city along with something we might see on our Swiss adventures, such as a set of skis, cow, watch, or mountain goat. The twin Jokers both depict the iconic red and white Swiss flag. Like the mountains, these are the two colours that are ever-present wherever we look in this deck, even inside the box.
