When the Earth, Sun, and Moon come into perfect alignment, it is a moment of great beauty, great balance, and great power: SYZYGY. For that single instant, the Earth hangs in perfect symmetry, bookended between day and night, between light and dark, between the burning heat of the sun and the moon’s deep chill.
This limited edition, Bicycle-branded deck was hand-crafted over more than a year of development to reflect that moment of astronomical perfection. Every element, from the card design, to the tuck box, to the inks themselves, has been custom-made for this deck.
The tuck box is premium red vellum with antique gold foil. The cards themselves are Q1 quality—the highest possible grade of stock—with an embossed finish and “magic coating” that allows them to last longer than standard cards. Each of the 56 cards is unique and hand-drawn, from the intricate custom pips to the hypnotic Ace of Spades to the celestially aligned jokers.
