MORTALIS Playing Cards by Area 52

Limited to 2000 pieces


Mortalis Playing Cards is a deck of quality playing cards printed and manufactured in the USA by the United States Playing Card Company. Fully marked, it hides its secrets in plain sight.

Only 2000 decks were printed and will never be reprinted or reissued.


The optical marking system was designed in such a way that the closer you look, the less you see. For the untrained eye it is not visible. Spectators and even magicians cannot see it up close.


It takes the trained eye less than 2 seconds to recognize and read a card just from the back. The whole system is designed to revolve around the functioning of a clock. If you can read a clock, you  can also read the mysteries of Mortalis. Perfect for the close-up!


Printed by the USPCC on their premium paper, then double-pressed and finished with an embossed air cushion.

A traditional cut makes for perfect faro blends and table work. To say the cards handle like a dream is an accurate description.


Designed from the ground up, the custom court cards feature borderless courts with bright matching colors. Facial expressions on some cards have been reworked to give them a unique, personal touch.


Each deck comes with a duplicate backing, duplicate card, and detailed instructions on how to read and use the marking system.


Designed by the renowned artist and designer of the Mint Playing Cards, Christofer Lacoste in Canada and realized and produced by Area52Magic and Pravar Jain.
