The Labyrinthium Playing Cards is a fresh new release from Penguin Magic.

It's described as follows: "Limited edition PURE-BLACK cards, with a FOIL-ONLY print. Even the edges are black, which causes the foil-only print to LEAP off the deck. "

Initial impressions of this deck are very positive, based on the gorgeous product pictures. I've personally been quite impressed with Penguin's Ultralux stock so far. I'm looking forward to see how these will look and feel, especially with the black edges and the gold foiling, which looks like a stunning combination.

There's more ad copy on the product page, but here are some key excerpts:

"Designed by Georgiana Strimbu, Labyrinthium have fully custom artwork across the board.

The cards have full-bleed black ink on the faces and the backs, but all of the design work is crafted from foil. The back design has a detailed geometric layout with leaves & flowers growing from the rigid structure. The backs are stamped from beautiful gold foil.

The faces use gold & red foils and feature stylish courts and customized number cards. The custom jokers can be used as wild cards in all of your favorite games, while two bonus gaff cards can be used for magic tricks.

The premium tuck box is made from a high-quality matte black paper, with the inner & outer designs completely crafted from gold & white foils for amazing visual contrast and a subtle luxurious texture. The box is topped off with a custom gold foil sticker seal.

Labyrinthium playing cards feature UltraLux™ Finish and AquaFlow™ Coating. This blend of casino-grade European card stock and water-based coating, with a perfect linen texture and vegetable-based inks results in a deck that handles like an absolute dream. The cards are traditionally cut with smooth edges that provide just the right amount of grip. These cards are soft enough to get to work straight out of the box, but durable enough to meet the needs of a full-time magician, cardist, or card sharp.
