From the creators:
Smoke & Mirrors brand playing cards were designed to be our personal deck, custom-tailored to our taste with original art by Si Scott. That was back in 2007. The cards quickly sold out so we printed more, and more, and more. Eventually, we changed the color and altered the design to fit our style. For five straight years, we released a new "version" of the brand until 2012 when we decided to revamp the entire series and release them all in a limited edition box set.
