Clairvoyant, Mental Topper and The Mind-Reader's Dream - magic

In the early 1950s, Bob Hummer caused a stir with his rendition of 'Think-a-Card' called 'Mind-Reader's Dream', in which a card merely thought of was discovered without any questions asked. It's drawback - a fairly complex dealing procedure and a book of tables consulted by the magician - inspired many card magicians to seek streamlined methods.

In the early 90s Justin Higham published a method for the Hummer effect in which the dealing procedure was greatly simiplified and the book of tables eliminated. This provides the basis for this new study of 'Clairvoyant' and related effects, including Marlo's seminal 'Mental Topper': an effect where not only is a thought-of card produced, but also its three 'mates'.

48 pages, over 40 variations on 'Clairvoyant', 'Mental Topper' and 'The Mind-Reader's Dream', plus an easy in-the-hands False Dovetail (Riffle) Shuffle for use in these effects. A5 printed booklet, saddle-stitched with card covers.
