Square Faro


 

LIMITED EDITION: Only 2000 printed! Will NOT be reprinted.

This reproduction deck is based off the Squared Faro #366 which was first produced by Russell & Morgan Co. in 1887 to supply gambling casinos. Faro was the most popular gambling game at that time.

It has been digitally recreated to accurately represent the artwork on the deck, but on a modern USPCC printed deck with rounded corners.

The Court cards are full-length figures which contain many of the idiosyncratic features associated with designs re-copied from the woodblock era.

This deck would be a great practical prop for any themed wild west parties or to use in gambling magic routines. Superb appearance and handling!

Now among my very favorites.

The brilliantly drawn court cards are truly another category of skill for their spontaneity and whimsy. I love the absence of indices given how the arrangements of enlarged pips crowd out to the margins, evoking a feel of how we were able to count using elements other than numbers. The unassuming tuck box, the unobtrusive back pattern, the spatiality of every face design, all come together to create a totally perfect feel. A+.
