Product Description

    Details

    This very special Bicycle deck has custom graphics that pay tribute to a near-ancient text. In the early 1500s Leonardo Da Vinci illustrated "La Divina" (The Divine Proportion). This was a book written by mathematician Luca Pacioli that described a mathematical theory called "The Golden Ratio". A little research will tell you that this concept was used extensively in Renaissance paintings and sculptures to achieve balance and beauty.

    DaVinci later called this section aurea or the Golden section. The gold foil and swirl designs on the tuck box bring the Golden ratio to life in this unique deck of cards. The backs of the cards also feature superb graphics that explore the concept in beautiful, artistic way.

    These decks are made from premium card stock and manufactured in the USA to very high standards.
