INCLUDED WITH ORDER: The Flourish Magazine + Cardistry Collectible Playing Card

Introducing The Flourish Magazine - the first cardistry physical magazine to bridge the world between cardists and laymen. 

For the first issue we sat down with Huron Low from the Virts who took us on a deep dive through the history and making of the Virtuoso brand and playing cards. Find out first hand just what it took to become the biggest cardistry brand in the world from one of the co-founders. 

Learn about the history of cardistry from Kevin Ho, discover how Fontaine Cards influenced playing card designs from Pablo Frey, learn how to present cardistry to laymen from Christiaan Hau and sit down with some of the cardists you know and love to find out how they create, film and think about cards.

The Flourish Magazine comes with a cardistry collectible playing card featuring a talented cardist from inside the community. This issue features Nikita Yatsik @nikitalus , a very talented cardist from Russia. Nikita shines through his amazing creativity, managing to create unique cuts that always end up surprising you. This is why we've decided to interview him and feature tutorials for 5 of his flourishes inside of the magazine.

Didn't finish reading it (yet)

I was blown away by the introduction, the creation process, the way the author thinks. Flipping through the pages I almost cried. It was like a recap from my teenage years to adulthood. Seeing all the beautiful pictures of decks, I remembered what I have felt when I saw for the first time cardistry videos. I remembered the first time I learned the Anaconda dribble. The nostalgy of those memories is priceless. I forgot the magazine at my parents home a few weeks ago. I'm writing this review just to get rid of the email notifications

A complete journey

Reading this magazine felt just like when I first got into cardistry, diving into a river of knowledge and passion.
I cannot recommend this enough, I purely "consumed it". Even for laymen, still as interesting as it was for me. Biz is always putting the best of the best into his creations and this is no exception. It doesn't matter what skill level you posses, you can learn from this a lot, like seriously, give it a try and thank me later. Interviews were so enjoyable and I felt that sharing the same thoughts with most cardists is like having a second family. The quality of the magazine is also impeccable(paper wise, content and design), just in case you had any doubts.


This is a must buy for anyone who is interested in cardistry, magic, playing cards or even just art. It’s a beautiful magazine with captivating content that will inspire you with every turn of the page. I highly recommend to any cardist, hobbyist, artist, and human being that enjoys reading. I’d buy yours today before they run out.
