I purchased this with my own money

Identity deck - each playing card in the deck has on its face a different personality archetype, a different iconic image, and a different background. The deck is rich with meaning, and perfect for combining visual magic with quick punchy personality readings.

The royals have as their faces the twelve signs of the zodiac, and the two jokers represent duality, being marked with up and down, yes and no, ying and yang. These layers of meaning allow you to explore the more esoteric metaphysical approach to magic in your performances, and to help you create miracles we have built the deck with a whole load of magical helpers.

The deck is marked with our unique Constellation reader system. The cards can be quickly and easily identified from a distance, at a glance, meaning you can always stay one step ahead of the situation. The system requires no decoding or working out - if you can see the card back you instantly know the card - but its hidden in such a way that spectators will never spot it.

The deck arrives pre-arranged into the "Identity Stack" - a powerful easy-to-use stacked deck system that is based on Lewis Jones famous memory deck. To help make the system even easier the backs are also marked with the numerical position of each card in the Identity Stack, meaning you can always quickly get the deck into stack.


The large icons on the front of the cards are mirrored in the index corners, making the deck perfect for performing the classic book-break-peek, allowing you to immediately know what icon your participants are thinking of.


In the age of audiences Googling tricks the moment they see them, we wanted to add a layer of insulation to the Identity deck, and although our original prototypes were boxed as Identity deck, you can see from these photos that the production deck has a different name on the tuck box, one I wont even mention here to stop it from being Googleable.


To help in using the deck the extra card in the deck has a personality crib on it so you can instantly jump from knowing what card the participant is thinking of to the personality on that card.

Bottom Line:

These all add up to a flexible magic powerhouse, giving you a rich toolbox of potent methods allowing you to create and perform hard-hitting meaningful magic that audiences love. Also included are high quality downloadable instruction videos that explains each feature and gives an example of a trick that it can be used it for.
