Fig. 25 Playing Cards is a detailed tribute to Erdnase and the infamous Expert at the Card Table book. Not only do the decks include illustrations from the book, each deck is uniquely wrapped to look like a mini replica Expert at the Card Table book.

Why are they called Fig. 25?

S.W. Erdnase stated that the most important "artifice" one could master with a deck of playing cards is the bottom deal. The M.D. Smith illustration for this invaluable lesson is fig. 25.

The original intention was to place the various illustrations by The M.D. Smith throughout the deck until Mark Calabrese, an Erdnase aficionado as well as a highly skilled sleight of hand artist, had a brilliant idea:

Imagine cutting the shape of a card directly from the pages of the book... and then printing each page on EVERY card! GENIUS!The result is the most detailed and TRUE TRIBUTE DECK to Erdnase, EVER designed!

EACH page was scanned at high resolution, carefully placed for aesthetics, one card at a time, and then meticulously lightened and colorized in a sepia tone to balance out the contrast of the image.
