Fancy cards are nothing new, but the Fantastique Playing Cards manage to offer an extra twist that no other deck has.

Design-wise, the Fantastique Playing Cards are awesome. The illustrations were inspired by magic's golden age and the most iconic magician of all time, Robert-Houdin. The artwork is absolutely dazzling and has a hint of abstract mystery. What's even more impressive is what the images themselves actually reveal. Hold the cards in your hand, flip through them like a flip-book and you'll see the illustrations come to life. The animation will reveal two of magic's most famous illusions.

The Fantastique Playing Cards is an impressive set that manages to excite viewers with its artwork while preserving the mystique of magic itself.
