CHOOSE FROM EITHER THE DIAMOND OR GRAPHITE EDITION
Two editions were created for the Carbon Deck project- Diamond Edition and Graphite Edition, both allotropes of carbon.
The Diamond Edition
The two-way back design features a familiar central circle design element originally made popular by the Tally-Ho Circle Backs. The design here is meant to represent a round-cut diamond using a mosaic of various shapes and shades of black and white. The darker background coupled with this mosaic give off an optical illusion of a diamond shimmering in the light. The four circles placed around the perimeter of the round-cut diamond represent the 4 valence electrons carbon contains, as well as familiar place-setting prongs often found in jewelry to hold gems in place. Around the perimeter of the diamond you will also see the words “Diamond Edition.”
The Diamond Edition actually has a very deceiving marking system.

The Graphite Edition
Luke Wadey designed the Graphite Edition with cardists in mind, using premium crushed Bee stock – and various design elements. It showcases a one way back design with a large hexagon embedded in the center. The hexagon is representative of the way carbon atoms bond to create graphite. It is also meant to be a focal point when performing various card flourishes. The deck also has four different fanning patterns when fanned from different sides.
