Playing Cards


In recent years we’ve seen Erdnase card clips and several different decks of cards with Erdnase-inspired back designs.

One back in particular, Erdnaseum, is an interesting card which was created for the "Erdnaseum event" in August 2011 in Montana, produced by Dan and Dave Buck in collaboration with Bill Kalush and the Conjuring Arts Research Center. The back design logo is an ambigram of “S.W. Erdnase” and “W. E. Sanders”, a possible (albeit, unlikely) candidate for Erdnase himself. The overall back design is commonly referred to as the Bee “Worm” back. This exhibit houses a few selections including those by the Conjuring Arts Research Center, The Magic Apple, Dave & Dan Buck (Dave & Dan Industries) and e-illusionist.
