Untitled Playing Cards USPCC
Untitled Playing Cards
Untitled Playing Cards represents the fluid nature of our art. A distinct color palette, within different shapes, leads you into the abstract world.
Printed by the USPCC using their premium crushed stock, traditionally cut. Custom one-way design, Jokers, and Ace of Spades. Spade pips altered at random to include the back design for a striking contrast. Limited edition of 2,500. No reprints -- once they're gone, that's it.
"I've always had a fascination with abstract art, it's raw and unconventional. I really wanted to portray that in this deck. Untitled Playing Cards offers a freedom from constraint, pursue your creativity."
- Adam Borderline
Amazing deck of cards. When I bought these on clearance I was just expecting a fun colored deck for cheap but was surprised to discover they handle extremely well and work both for Cardistry and magic. I was hesitant to use them for anything but poker at first but after watching a few videos and trying them out for myself I was pleasantly surprised. Would highly recommend and am even considering getting another just for show
This deck is like a painting or art - your view changes depending on your mood. Such aesthetic and artistic. Love every single bit of it !
Untitled Playing Cards (yes, that's really the name!) is the first deck created by photographer Adam Borderline, who has a real eye for art and colour.
But the Untitled deck isn't what it first sounds like: a lazy title. Adam Borderline has a fascination with the raw and unconventional nature of abstract art, and wanted to use this to suggest the idea of creativity that is free from constraint. The side of the tuck box says Fluidcards, which captures the essence of Adam's photography, and the nature of cardistry, which is all about fluid motion and creativity.
Adam is highly respected for his skill with "liquid card photography", and his #fluidcards series of photographs typically showcases playing cards with liquids, and with this deck he's taken his artistic skills to playing cards. The card backs have an effervescent one-way back design that is fresh, lively, colourful, and vibrant.
The card faces are mostly standard, but there is a pleasant surprise - every single Spade card has one pip that has been decorated with a splash from the card backs. The Ace of Spades is especially an exuberant ambassador of Adam's blaze of abstract colour, in a deck that is spectacular and yet functional.
Cardists will love the flashing colours, while magicians will be delighted that the familiar card faces work equally well in the world of card magic. And this deck will be equally at home in a game of poker or cards. I love it! - BoardGameGeek reviewer EndersGame
