UNIQUE AND UNUSUAL CARDS

Featured Deck: Killer Bees

Ellusionist Killer Bees Playing Card DeckEllusionist Killer Bees Playing Card Deck Ellusionist Killer Bees Playing Card Deck

 

Killer Bees Playing Cards Deck by Ellusionist is specifically designed with card players, magicians and card enthusiasts in mind. Like all superhero stories, Killer Bees were created by scientists to help re-populate their diminishing Bee population. We wanted to capture the darker bodies of these cold-face killers in our deck. Creating a harsh black back with toxic-waste yellow honeycomb design on the back. The black faces display custom pips and hold a sinister simplicity. A portion of each Killer Bee Deck sold is given to the IUCN organization to help support the honey bee population. Printed on quality Cardamundi B9 stock with a true linen finish.
