  5. Les Printemps Playing Cards

    Les Printemps by Ricky Smith

    Our dear friends Laurel Brandstetter and Ricky Smith created these cards as a tribute to Robert-Houdin in celebration of their wedding. Originally produced as wedding favors, only a small number of Les Printemps playing cards are now being offered to the public. Robert-Houdin was the father of modern magic and is known for many original inventions. One of his most famous is the Orange Tree, a marvelous illusion in which an orange tree blossoms and then gives fruit right before your eyes. The effect ultimately reveals a borrowed ring inside one of the oranges, and is what inspired the way in which Ricky proposed to Laurel.
