Lawrence Sullivan is a professional magician based in Hong Kong. He performs worldwide.
Slowly building his repertoire through classic texts on magic such as Expert Card Technique and CardCollege, he learned the basics of misdirection and deception. First of all, he is focused on card and close-up magic. That is why he decided to create his own decks of playing cards – Legends Playing Cards. So, you should understand that these playing cards were produced for magicians.
Deck was designed by the American prominent artist, Mark Stutzman. He designed the David Blaine “Split Spades” and “White Lions” playing card series, Whispering Imps playing cards for Chris Chelko.
The ConjuringArtsResearchCenter (Erdnase 216 Bee Squeezers Playing Cards) partnered up with Lawrence Sullivan to produce these nice decks of playing cards and to distribute them in US through their library. Lawrence was able to find a new quality playing card manufacturer in Taipei (Taiwan) due to CARC’s experience and connections in the field of playing card production.
The 1st edition of this deck is available in three different colours: Blue, Red and Metallic Green (no metallic ink). The only differences between three decks are different colours of backs and tuck cases.
The deck: 52 playing cards + 2 Jokers (one have a reveal). Poker size. Playing cards were printed on casino cardboard and have some kind of “embossed finish”. Decks have custom Jokers and the Ace of Spades. Court cards are Bicycle standard court cards with new faces and slightly changed colours.
