Sold Out

The Story:

The latest edition of the Les Méliés series of playing cards by Derek Mckee and Michael Blau pays tribute to the iconic film A Trip to The Moon directed by the French filmographer and magician George Méliés. While the deck features the same intricately designed back, the Les Méliés Eclipse edition includes an updated tuck box. Most importantly, this deck encapsulates many secrets and features, that will enable you to captivate your audience and push the boundaries of their imaginations. We encourage you to discover the special features on your own. 


The latest edition of the Les Méliés series of playing cards still features the timeless back design from previous editions.


The faces of the Les Méliés: Eclipse Edition playing cards are standard faces. However, we have changed the standard bright red to a dark red to enhance the elegant look of the playing cards.


The Ace of Spades and the Jokers are the same as the previous editions of the Les Méliés series to maintain the tradition and tribute to the iconic film A Trip to The Moon.


This latest edition includes an updated tuck box. The new design is simpler than previous versions, yet it continues to encapsulate the meaning and purpose behind the deck.

A Deck Made With The Magician in Mind:

The Les Méliés: Eclipse Edition cards were designed with the magician in mind. This deck is loaded with numerous features that will make them your “go to” deck for close-up, walkaround, and parlour performances.

  • A subtle one-way back design

  • The deck comes in reversed Mnemonica stack, right out of the box
  • And many more for you to discover on your own

What working magicians are saying about the Les Méliés Eclipse Edition cards:

"I buy cards for magic, not for looks, not for juggling. This deck has the smoothest cut, perfect thickness of card, and I can faro blindfolded. Cards are my tools and I believe I just upgraded to the best on the market."

- Darryl Davis

"Loved the design when it first came out and still love it now. The fact that they feel great is just icing!"

- Franco Pascali

Les Méliés is a perfect example of a great custom deck. Innocent looking yet packed with so many powerful features that would help enhance your card magic to the next level.”

- Patrick Kun
