Bicycle Pluma playing cards – desaturated elegance with a subtle one-way back

I like the muted hues of the Bicycle Pluma deck. The red ink has a lot of brown in it, as if you are looking at the cards through dark sunglasses. The pips are different from the standard Bicycle deck, too — more old fashioned looking.

The coolest thing about this deck is that, unlike a standard Bicycle deck, the Pluma has a "one-way" design on the back — one of the leaves under each the four wings is white (the other three are blue). There are a lot of magic tricks you can do with a one-way deck.
