KALEIDOSKOPE Playing Cards. A colorful animated fantasy
The master of animated decks, Stephen W. Brandt (Swabbed Decks) has just released his latest creation: KALEIDOSCOPE.
Unlike his previous creations in which the inspiration came from culture, architecture or entertainment, this deck is straight and simple and brings us back to the beautiful memory of childhood looking through those artifacts made with mirrors and filled with small transparent pieces that created whimsical multicolored scenes.
The faces feature a pastel background with superimposed traditional pips, indices and a deconstruction of court characters.
The animation of the backgrounds is complete and shows a psychedelic parade of shapes.
This design was going to be the artist’s first Bicycle deck, with special features in the tuck cases, but due to the extra costs from the USPCC to include the brand and the extras, Stephen has decided to print them with the same quality but in a standard edition print run of 2000 units that will allow many more fans to get them.
