Feel the Universe is much more than a card company... tries to bring you a new cardistry and magic experience.
_x000D_ In 2016, the first edition of Odyssey Cards was almost 200% funded and, last year, Boreal Edition came to the world thanks to more than 250 people who supported the Kickstarter project. We hit the goal in the fourth day, reaching almost the 300% of the goal. And finally, in 2018, Aether Edition become real thanks to 544 backers! You made Odysseys real, and now…we want to offer to this amazing community something more…We evolved for you…this year…in collaboration with Antno Creative…is time to Odyssey Nova.
_x000D_ Antonio Martínez (AntnO) is a creative mind based in Málaga, Spain. He works as a designer, animator and advertising creative executive on his own agency. More than five years have passed since antnO started sharing his love for playing cards, magic and cardistry on Instagram.
_x000D_ The hard work in his profile has allowed him to collaborate and work with big brands such as Art of Play, Ellusionist, Bicycle or Cartamundi. So far he has produced and launched three decks to the market. Now antnO has joined Feel the Universe’s team to collaborate in the design process of the Odyssey Nova Edition.
_x000D_ Odyssey Nova is the result of on year of hard work. Everything in this deck makes sense. Have been maintained the feelings that Feel the Universe and the previous Odyssey editions have provoked. The essence has been maintained. However, Odyssey Nova is much more than the previous editions…

_x000D_ Odyssey Nova is crafted with one of the best paper stocks in the world, Classic paper stock. Has been used a new version of Classic paper stock thinner and softer than the one used for the First Edition, but not as thin as Aether Edition so it will give you more comfort when you perform magic techniques.
_x000D_ This time has been used the Magic finish. This finish makes cards smooth but still in excellent control. Great for cutting the deck and performing magic techniques this finish combined with Luxury paper stock makes Nova one of the best decks for every art.
_x000D_ THE BACK
_x000D_ Odyssey’s Nova back design shows a brand new nebula. The new back is reminiscent of the First Edition, an iconic deck. Purple colors, vibrant tones and something new that makes this back amazing... the illusion of depth.
