Voltige Playing Cards by Dan and Dave BuckDan and Dave Buck
After over two years of production, you can now wander down the Champs-Élysées with a pack of our Voltige playing cards in hand. Designed in collaboration with Henri de Saint Julien & Jacques Denain, the creators behind Tungstene, a deck that’s become not only a rarity, but a paragon in the collections of those lucky enough to own a pack. We are confident that in the same way as its fabled predecessor, Voltige will quickly become a modern classic.
Voltige, a name stemming from the french word for “aerial” often used to describe the apex gesture of a flourish, is a true testament to our creative ingenuity and drive to constantly push the boundaries of custom playing cards. Not unlike Georges Haussmann’s reconstruction of the streets of Paris, each deck features a design that’s innovative, modern, and exceptionally bourgeois.
Perhaps one of our most tedious endeavors to date, we’ve managed to create a custom lateral opening tuck case. Often times while in production the slightest error meant disposing of the entire batch. Each deck of Voltige, fitted with our innovative perforated seal, comes packaged in the exemplification of our standard of perfection.
In an effort to continue the transcendence of our limitations, each box attributes a layer of “soft-touch coating” - a texture that will surely add an entirely new dimension to the future of playing cards. Every pack off the line is printed and hand-assembled in the USA.
The back design is a display of two separate hands working in tandem to reach a singular goal. To us, this is the epitome of not only our life story, but of our brand as a whole. Today we work in tandem to bring you the next chapter in the future of playing cards.
Available individually in Moulin Rouge Red and Deep Parisian Blue. Designed in France, Printed in the USA, Hand-shuffled by You.
