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.
I ordered 3 brown bricks and received 3 decks of these blue rounders. I have to say that they are by far the most amazing looking of all the finishes. Side note: The brown back is one of my personal favorites as well. Beautiful finishes, great feel, Amazing quality, I never expect anything less from Ellusionist.
These are staying in the display case sealed! i do however own all the other colors 2 and love the feel and look so i know these would be amazing!!!
Got this deck when I ordered a brick of the Brownders and was not disappointed at all. The blue on the backs of these cards is a very nice striking color and my only wish is that these cards were not limited as I would be using them everyday if they were readily available!!
