Memento Mori Blue
Obviously all reviews are very subjective, but I found this deck to be a bit of a love it or hate it. The thing that I probably like most of all is the groovy 3d impressed tuck case. It is bold and striking and makes a statement.
They have made the design decision to make all the pips the same colour. I am sure there are good artistic reason for this, but it seems perverse to me. You can see it clearly in this picture of the aces.
The geometric pattern has been brought across into the design of the court cards. Personally, I just don’t like the style – but some will – so I have provided plenty of pictures for you to make your own mind up.
The design of the jokers seems slightly unimaginative but I could see them fitting into certain types of presentation.
The design really comes into its own in spreads and fans. As you can see, these are very attractive and make a striking display. This would make a great deck for cardistry or flashy manipulation within a standard magic act.
Time is fleeting – this deck proclaims – and so I will leave my words there and let you make up your own mind.
