Joker and the Thief embarks in a new direction with the Five Ninety-Sevens! Made for everyday use and for Cardists who prefer minimal design. Their first departure from intricate design is still uniquely JT, a closer look at the details will show you why.
The back design is what a Joker and the Thief Cardistry deck should look like - stripped back, refined, bold and enticing. The JT insignia resting in the centre of the design provides weight and presence. The borders are distressed providing an extra edge of detail, and is consistent with their branding. The back design is complemented by a stunning, vintage inspired ace of spades, accompanied by ARRCO style court cards that have been recoloured. Keeping with the vintage artwork of the ARRCO court cards, their signature Joker and Thief cards have been illustrated to mimic the same design language, in order to create a seamless through-line that connects every element of the deck.
The Five Ninety-Seven utilities premium letterpress processes to create heavy impressions into a specialised cream paper stock.
The interior of the box features a vibrant solid yellow to contrast with the darker exterior. The perforated seal is the connective tissue between the 597s and all the decks that came before it, with all the detail you would expect from a normal JT deck.
