Rounders Playing Cards by Madison - Black
I tested over 50 different stocks and finishes to find and create my perfect deck of playing cards.
With both conscious and subconscious influences from the casino industry as well as my own visceral world I believe that I found something in the Rounders that represents who I am and what I stand for.
I have always thought that everything beautiful is either intricate or simple, and I am drawn to the latter, especially in design.
I have stayed true to that idea through every stage of the design and production of the Madison Rounders.
I wanted to create a deck of cards that somehow reflected my style and ideals through simplicity. The Madison Rounders are beautifully minimal in design, they are bold and strong with only three colors used throughout. They host an Ace of Spades fit for any casino.
With help from Jeff Lianza, Peter Mckinnon, the Ellusionist team and my closest friends, I am proud to present the Madison Rounders.
My favorite deck of cards: handling, cut, design. BUT there is one issue: the back on many cards is misaligned. Some of them are off centered so bad, the back picture is rotated like 10 degrees relative to paper.
I like this deck, but I think the borders are a little too thick for my taste. All in all a pretty good set of playing cards.
I love this deck. The feel of it is so different from the standard bicycle decks I'm used to. I had seen the G on the hand of the jack of spades and I think I can use it as a reveal. For example you could force that card to the top of the deck, and force their chosen card as 7th from the top since g is the 7th letter of the alphabet. I'm still working on the idea but I will attempt it eventually. Again amazing deck. I will surely be using it very frequently!
