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 Cartamundi 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.

Customer reviews for The Feather Deck: Goldfinch Edition



Unique and clever deck. The hand drawn features are excellent.



i tend to gear towards theory 11 with card decks, to each there own, however VINC cards never disapoint, from the boy who cried magic, to mr vogts deck, just very nice. i prob shouldn't give a review persay, i bought both deck teal/gold and by the look of the tuck boxes themselves, i'm not opening them, and ordering another one. but i have no doubt, once that wrapper is popped, and the case is open, there will be no disappointments to be found in there.



I'm floored. I bought these because they're just gorgeous. I was not prepared to handle these cards—they are, without a doubt, the greatest, softest cards I've ever handled. That's why I'm posting this review, not just because you should support the artist and buy this gorgeous deck. I am praying that VI (or others) release more on Cartomundi's crushed stock because as far as I'm concerned, I have finally found the perfect playing card stock. I can't stop handling these cards... thank you VI for this incredible release! PLEASE make more decks on this stock!



Great quality of the cards, and I really love the design. It can be used to perform in day-to-day life, but also is good as a deck for card collectors. Highly recommend it. If you are wondering about buying it, don't think more, just do it.


BGG Reviewer

The Feather Deck: Goldfinch Edition is arguably Vanishing Inc's best deck of playing cards yet. It makes a striking impression from the moment you first set your eyes on the tuck box, and exudes elegance and sophistication. The gold foil accents on the back of the cards adds a real sense of luxury and style, and the lightweight feel and smooth handling of the thin card-stock ensures performance to match the visual beauty. Both the Teal and the Gold versions are stunning.



I truly like the deck but one aspect that I have mixed feelings on are the seemingly random off colors of different suite symbols on random cards. For example, the 7 of spades had one gold spade on it, while the 6 and 5 have none. Overall, a simple but unique deck and I love the ace of spades artwork.



Both the Teal and the Goldfinch editions of the feather decks are truly fantastic with beautiful touches. I particularly like the gold on the backs. It’s hard to choose which I prefer best, so why not get both? I do agree with Cody on the randomly coloured pips. Personally I didn’t like it, so for me it’s the only down side to the deck, but even then it is kind of unique and some spectators may like this. They handle incredibly well and I will most likely be buying a few more if they don’t sell out.
