The Ultimate Deck
Roll up, roll up… and discover a world of curiosity and wonder on the many faces of the stunning The Ultimate Deck.
‘The marvels of the odd minded await’. Embossed in gothic silver along the edge of an immaculate black tuck-case, this tantalising and faintly macabre whisper has an air of P.T. Barnum about it. And well it should. Because, like the great showman himself, The Ultimate Deck has the power to create instant and irresistible curiosity.
What dark secrets lurk within that enigmatic case? Not your standard 54 inscrutably uniform cards... more like a Tim Burton fever dream. The Ultimate Deck features a unique piece of beautifully hand-drawn artwork on every single card - each one different, each a little stranger than the last, and (crucially) each designed specifically for the card that bears it. Riffle through and you’ll find a masterfully crafted world of curiosities, bizarre characters and even a few impossible beasties. The impression it gives is of holding an arcane and beautiful (but card-sized) book.
The brainchild of card aficionados Dan and Dave, in collaboration with award-winning design agency Stranger and Stranger, The Ultimate Deck is a veritable masterpiece – from the immaculate tuck-case, to the gorgeous original illustrations. Hailed as the most expensive deck ever manufactured (it took over a year to produce), it’s little wonder they’ve added their names to the back of each card. With a deck of cards this special, and a strictly limited run, everyone will want to stake a claim. Although they're so beautifully designed you probably won't want to actually use them. As Spinal Tap's Nigel Tufnell said "It's kind of a Zen thing. Playing with them would be kind of like unvirgining a virgin."
