Real beauty is understated and confident. It effortlessly touches us like a gentle breeze.

Papilio Ulysses V3 Playing Cards (printed by US Playing Card Company) encourages all who hold this amazing deck to experience its beauty and "Alis volat propriis" - Fly with your own wings.

When in flight, the female Ulysses butterfly can be seen hundreds of meters away as sudden bright blue flashes.

In honor of this phenomenon, metallic blue and gold ink is strategically speckled throughout the deck on the tuck case, card backs, court cards and Jokers.

The value and quality of Papilio Ulysses Playing Cards is undeniable. Every card was thoughtfully modified to represent the stages of metamorphosis and flight. Each of the court cards are customized with royal beauty and class.

The numbered cards delightfully include a customized pip, while retaining the familiar design of the key indices.

The simple white and metallic blue tuck case cocoons the beauty and the unique color of the deck inside. The tuck also fittingly includes a prediction element for magicians.

Beautiful & Essential to any Collection

Papilio is at once something beautiful and yet so alluring, that one must reach for it, carefully hold it, quite like a butterfly itself. Especially for the price, this is one of the most gorgeous decks I own; and Papilio doesn’t make the mistake of some decks in becoming overly and grossly ornate. It’s a true work of art. And the price allows you to buy one for your collection and one to use and display (because a butterfly is most beautiful in its freedom, varied sunbeams dancing on its wings).

We really appreciate your detailed review, Dustin! That's awesome that you love this Papilio deck, it truly is a fantastic set of playing cards!

A beautiful deck!

The Papilio deck is a beautiful addition to any collection - it feels good out of the box and has little details that make it an easy recommendation.
