The Flourish Magazine x Cardtopia 2023
Product detailed description
This special edition of The Flourish Magazine was created in collaboration with and for Cardtopia 2023, one of the biggest playing card conventions in the world. Releasing a special issue of the new cardistry magazine was a great idea.
An article discusses conventions (playing cards, magic, and cardistry), their differences, and why it is beneficial to attend them. Another extensive article about Cardestroy was written by its inventor, Shivraj Morzaria.
Thinking outside the box? How about thinking outside the outside of the box? That’s how most people feel when they first watch Shivraj’s Cardestroy creations. He purposefully “destroys” cards to create new, mesmerizing, and, often, mind-blowing flourishes and visuals.
There are many more articles - about cardistry brands Lotus In Hand, Komorebi, and Heath Cards and the evolution of playing card design. There are links to beginner cardistry tutorials and exclusive sleight of hands tutorials by Jack Paton.
