Imagine you are anywhere but on stage, and you are unprepared. Somebody asks you to do a
'magic trick' (yeah, they know who you are!). You answer you would like to, but you have
nothing with you, but a pen and a few business cards. You take out your business card holder
or box, and you start amazing your audience.
Now, imagine you would take a deck of cards. It would be all different … Nobody would
believe you are unprepared!
This ebook is a compendium of Gerard Zitta's effects, that can be done with business
cards. They all 'look' impromptu, and most of them are indeed impromptu as long as you

- Effects that are completely impromptu. No preparation is required. In most cases, all you
need is a pen and business cards, sometimes blank on both sides.
- Effects that require either some setup or an additional prop. The preparation is simple, and the
prop easy to find.
They are mainly mentalism effects.
