Elegant. Streamlined. Timeless.
The Feather Deck celebrates the awe-inspiring beauty of the natural world, and reminds us of the inner-beauty found in the simplest of objects: a bird's feather.
The Feather Deck is the result of nine months of collaborative work between master-illustrator Travis DeMello and our design team at Vanishing Inc. Magic. DeMello is a Brooklyn-based artist who specializes in anatomy drawings. He selected the goldfinch feather, because of its ergonomic, symmetrical shape. The back design may look photographic, but you'll be astonished to know that it is ENTIRELY hand-drawn: every detail, every tiny bristle of the feather...rendered by hand.
The back of every card has been embossed with gold foil in the subtlest of ways, so when the feather backs catch the light just so, they glisten. The crushed-stock finish from Carta-Mundi is, in our estimation, the very softest, supplest playing card in the world. These cards handle better than anything we've ever released.
The box may be the most resplendent part of The Feather Deck. Starkly embossed with foil and with additional artwork by Travis DeMello, they are a fitting, luxurious way to transport your Feather deck.
Available in two designs: The Gold Edition boasts a luxurious deep purple box and a pastel orange back design. The Teal Edition comes in a navy blue box and features an eye-catching teal color scheme.
