a joyful palette
and pleasure to handle, but
prefer two-way backs.
This deck is alright. Not my favorite color pallet. The courts are sort of "off" for coloring if you ask me. The one way design on the back is not my favorite. yet, the cards do feel nice. The pips are nice.
With this deck in our hands, we are quickly going to get used to seeing a lot of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black! This deck's inspiration is with VHS tapes, Polaroid, and CMKY test strips. The card backs have a deliberate one-way design intended to accentuate packet cuts in the hands of a cardist. The graphic design here looks as if it could come straight from a set of printer samples, with very sharply focused lines and colours.S tandard designs of the court cards have been retained but these have been given a fresh coat of paint in line with the CMYK theme. The Ace of Spades is a giant pip, from which three splashes of vibrant colour emerge as lines right to the border on one side. The Jokers and ad cards bring to mind CMYK test strips, and remind us to "enjoy and relax". And isn't that exactly what cardistry is all about?
