Cardistry - The art of card juggling

Cardistry Decks | You always use card games where you use cards with the art of juggling. Cardistry is a name given to the performance art of card fanning and artistic making. The term is a combination of "map" and "art". Unlike card magic, cardistry is meant to be visually stunning and very difficult to execute. 

History of Map Art

Conjuring tricks with playing cards became popular around the 19th century. At the time, simple card grips like Charlier Cut, Riffle Shuffle, and Thumb Fan were often used by magicians to demonstrate skillful card handling.

Cardistry is all about using your hands to create fans, intricate patterns and sequences with playing cards. Various techniques can be used. The goal is to create an engaging movement and beautiful display. The effects are limited only by the type of cards used, the imagination, and the level of manual dexterity of the performer. The presentation is usually neither "illusory" nor supposedly "magical", but more like juggling, pantomime or similar entertaining activities.

First cardistry moves in books

The American magician Chris Kenner was familiar with Cardistry Decks | card games off. He published Totally Out of Control, a textbook on magic tricks involving household items, in 1992. On page 125 was a two-handed flower which he called "The Five Faces of Sybil". The end face of Sybil shows five different packets being held between the fingers.

Kenner referred to Sybil in his book as "a quick flourish that demonstrates skill and dexterity". The cut became Totally Out of Control's most notable creation and would eventually form the core of what is now known as cardistry.

Kevin Pang of Vanity Fair magazine observed that "every cardist should perform Sybil skillfully the way guitarists can walk through a blues progression".

Los Angeles-based magician Brian Tudor released a 1997 VHS tape titled Show Off that featured only flourishes and included numerous variations of Sybil. The tape was well-received by critics and led to growing attention for the cards as performance art.

The spread of XCM art 

Sybil enthusiasts and twin brothers Dan and Dave released Pasteboard Animations, another VHS tape explaining advanced flourishes and cuts, in 2001. It sold hundreds of copies and was critically acclaimed in a Genii magazine review that same year.

In 2004, the twins released The Dan and Dave System instructional DVD, which clearly separated cardcraft from magic. They Produced Different Cardistry Decks | card games. Three years later, in 2007, Dan and Dave released The Trilogy, a three-disc DVD set.

The Trilogy is the best-selling cardistry release of all time with over 25.000 copies sold. Virtually every cardist mentions either the system or the trilogy as a source of inspiration.
