In the December 2010 issue, in the article "Guy Hollingworth- The True Story of The Expert at the Card Table", there is a little snippet near the middle of the article showing how they designed the decks. At the end of the snippet is says that in the kings, there is "a little surprise for the sharp-eyed conjurer". It includes a picture of the king but I cannot find that "surprise". Can anyone else? I'm not sure if the designs for a letter or a word.
Thanks, Drew

I think one of the Kings is David Blaine.

If there is a more subtle Easter Egg, I would love to know what it is!
"Is there any point to which you would wish to draw my attention?"
"To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time."
"The dog did nothing in the night-time."
"That was the curious incident," remarked Sherlock Holmes.

I took a look at it. Look at the palms of the kings. One looks like it has a destiny line while the other looks like it has a life line. You'll know what I'm talking about if you read palms.

Wow!

That is a subtlety I would never have gleaned.

Amazing...

Thanks for the replies. (Sorry it took so long for me to reply though.) The way the author described it, made it sound pretty obvious. I'll keep looking.
Thanks, Drew
