What are Emanations?
Emanations are premium playing cards drawn & designed by Mahdi The Magician for his unique style of magic, cardistry, & card manipulation.
Every single card in Emanations playing cards has been drawn by Mahdi instinctively to awaken the primitive in all of us. Crafted with care, this deck is inspired by & a homage to Charles T. Jordan & Goodall.
The ink on playing cards used to be pressed onto the uncut sheets one color at a time resulting in every single deck looking completely unique due to the discrepancies and bleeding of the ink. I recreated this vintage aesthetic by making everything purposely imperfect.
Printers used to use different plates for individual colors and to save money they would limit themselves to only two colors, red and black for the faces. I fell in love with this style, using your restrictions and limitations to create more powerful art.
Mahdi Gilbert performs wonders without hands and walks the Earth without feet and is a walking miracle to everyone he meets. After giving up drawing in his adolescence to pursue magic Mahdi has turned back to illustration so he could create his first deck of playing cards, Hidden Leaves, which were successfully funded through Kickstarter in 2018. Emanations is his second deck of playing cards and also the name of a project in which he intends to explore early magic.
