World Tour Playing Cards (Assorted Styles) by Vanishing Inc.
The World Tour series consists of five bespoke packs of playing cards, each highlighting a different country and culture from the turn of the last century.
The Mongolian Deck is everyone's favorite design. Modeled after a "Peace" symbol we located on a piece of antique Mongolian furniture, this deck's simplicity and color palette have made it a favorite among collectors, and the most requested back design that Vanishing Inc. has ever created.
The Swiss Deck is inspired by the iconic travel posters around 1902, this retro-back design advertises the Swiss alps, in saturated colors and bold text, alluring the beholder to explore the treacherous but beautiful scenery Switzerland offers.
The Egypt Deck's back design is understated and two-color, with appearances by camels and the great pyramids. It is quite similar to card designs one would see on caravan rides that transported the earliest Egyptologists from Cairo to the Valley of the Kings.
The China Deck boasts a back design that isn't a design at all. Instead, when all the cards are arranged in new deck order, in a grid, they create a mosaic of the Chinese character for Mystery.
The France Deck's box is the main feature of this deck, with silver foil and a classic art deco design. The cards have a simple floral pattern that is neither flashy nor boring, but would blend in the sort of turn-of-the-century cafe magicians and card players would patronize during the period.
When all five decks are lined up, they create a map of the world highlighting the five featured countries: France, Switzerland, Mongolia, China, and Egypt.
The decks themselves are gorgeous, with iconography and hidden elements from the countries, culture, and time from which they've come. All printed by the Expert Playing Card Company, the cards have a durable, smooth finish ideal for shift work, gambling material, and sleights. Each deck has an extremely limited run of 1500 decks.
