This is a multi-gaffed book for mentalism and mental magic which the user can print and make at home.
Here's the multi-purpose book prop for mentalism and mental magic you've been waiting for: The Pocket Guide to Cartomancy. While it appears to be nothing more than a manual of how to tell fortunes with
cards, it has in fact been gaffed in thirty-three different ways to reveal hidden information. With it, you can perform word/book tests, design-duplication feats, intriguing card revelations and it can even serve as a come-on to get your audience interested in psychic readings.
The methods throughout are mystifying and varied. With such a wide selection, you can personalize its use to your own stage character or theme. You'll find applications involving pure anagrams, extensible anagrams, branching anagrams, interlocking anagrams, homonyms, visual synonyms and more. An intricate but easy-to-learn pattern is woven throughout the Guide to reveal not only the word, picture or card a participant is thinking of but also such things as ruling astrological planet and Zodiacal sign, lucky number, mystic symbol and much, much more.
Use it with cards, dice and other props to add a new layer of mystification, or use it alone for an always-ready book test ideal for impromptu or walk-around work. At 4 by 6 inches in size and 58 pages in length, The Pocket Guide to Cartomancy can be slipped into your jacket or breast pocket for a performance at a moment's notice.
This is a multi-use prop you make at home, but don't worry; no exotic or expensive tools or materials are required. A 20-minute video included with the download package explains the entire process in a friendly and easy fashion.
Included with the download package is the complete set of artwork for the pages, front cover, as well as other intriguing ancillary props. Best of all, it also comes with a huge 117-page instruction manual featuring an extensive bibliography for further explorations, 49 photos and illustrations, and over four dozen routine ideas for uses with ordinary decks, memorized and stacked decks, gaffed decks or no decks at all! This is truly a universal prop waiting for your own inventions.
