Black Roses Playing Cards
Having been a huge fan of all kinds of playing cards from the last century, it’s been a goal of mine to create a deck of cards that combines my love of minimalist art and detailed designs from the past.
The Black Roses Playing Cards were born from that idea.

Concept & Design
The Black Roses don't attract too much attention at the first glance. A positive feature, especially for magicians who don't want their audience to believe that it is a tricked deck.
However, all the little details reveal themselves at the second glance. A rich and intricate back design composed of clean and smooth lines, making it very interesting to look at without feeling overwhelmed by excessive and unnecessary clutter. Personalized court cards with modern elements take the dust off the original standard cards without destroying the classic look and feel. For example the Queen of Clubs with her long brown hair, holding a Black Rose in her hands.
All the decks will go straight from the US Playing Card Company to Art of Play. Without exaggerating, they count to the world's largest experts when it comes to playing cards. You deserve the best and fastest distribution. They handle and pack each deck with care - and a lot of bubble foil - to make sure you'll receive your Black Roses in perfect condition.
Over the years I have come up with my own tricks and techniques using a deck of cards. I wrote them down in my first book "Therapy: Modern Card Manipulation". I'm happy to share some of these ideas with you. You'll receive the tutorials as pdf files. Hand-drawn illustrations will lead you through the explanations.

Queen of all Diamonds / King of all Clubs
This is a very special reward for every playing card enthusiast. I will draw your face on the Queen of Diamonds / King of Clubs. Every court card in the Black Roses deck is personalized. Only these two cards are still waiting to get their unique touch.
That means your card is going to be printed in 1000 Black Roses decks which will be to produced through this Kickstarter project. In addition to this unique reward you'll get 4 bricks (48 decks) on top. So basically, your personalized court card in the deck is only the best bonus ever.
As you might have guessed, this reward is limited to one for each card.
If you decide to choose this reward, please send me an email to email@example.com with a good close up photo of you, or the person I should draw.
If nobody chooses this reward, I will replace the faces on the cards with friends of mine.
