As one of the exclusive retailers for Joker and the Thief, we are proud to stock their latest creation!
Joker and the Thief embarks in a new direction entirely with their newest deck, the Five Ninety-Sevens! Made with the intention for everyday use and for Cardists who prefer minimal design language. Practicality was the main intention behind this creation. That said, their first departure from intricate design is still uniquely JT, a closer look at the details will show you why.
The back design is what a Joker and the Thief Cardistry deck should look like - stripped back, refined, bold and enticing. The JT insignia resting in the centre of the design provides weight and presence. The borders are distressed providing an extra edge of detail and is consistent with their branding.
The back design is complemented by a stunning, vintage-inspired ace of spades, accompanied by ARRCO style court cards that have been recoloured. Keeping with the vintage artwork of the ARRCO court cards, their signature Joker and Thief cards have been illustrated to mimic the same design language, in order to create a seamless through-line that connects every element of the deck.
The tuck box is one of the team's favourite aspects of this new deck and look at home within their family of playing cards. The Five Ninety-Seven utilities premium letterpress processes to create heavy impressions into a specialised cream paper stock. As you run your fingers over the surface of the tuck, you will feel incredible, debossed letterpress elements. The interior of the box features a vibrant solid yellow to contrast with the darker exterior. The perforated seal is the connective tissue between the 597s and all the decks that came before it, with all the detail you would expect from a normal JT deck.
