(UPDATE: it appears that california company mollaspace will be distributing these cards in the fall of 2008 — hurrah!)
that losing streak you may be having on poker night won’t matter much, once your friends see how cool your taste is after you whip out these beautiful black playing cards from japan!
the use of matte and glossy inks is so hip and minimal, and the edgy illustrations on the face cards are quite intriguing. i think i just convinced myself to try and buy a deck…
find them at the visions coax shop for 1575 yen, or about us $14. (update: i am doing my best to find out from the company if they will sell to anyone who does not live in japan, but i don’t think it is going to be good news. drat.)
