Vanishing Inc. Magic has a VERY dedicated group of customers who are interested in memorized deck work. They are celebrating the arrival of Memorandum, the new, important, and highly-anticipated book by Woody Aragón. Woody is one of our most important modern card magic creators. His first book, A Book in English, was a bestseller that influenced top magicians. Penn and Teller do one of Woody's tricks in their Vegas show! The reason? Woody's magic is strong, it's clever, it fools ... and audiences love it!

In his new book, Memorandum, Woody reveals his revolutionary work on the memorized deck. He teaches his own ground-breaking stack and a whole array of tricks that work with any memorized stack (fifty tricks in total).

First, what is the Memorandum stack? It's a memorized deck that contains all the properties of Tamariz's Mnemonica as well as many of the features in Aronson's stack, plus many new concepts that are found nowhere else. The Memorandum stack is full of interesting approaches, such as:

  • Built-in poker revelations and routines
  • Self-contained setups for many tricks (including Matching the Cards, Magician Vs. Gambler, Ten-Card Poker Deal, a Hold' Em routine, and more)
  • Some clever forces of certain values
  • Some interesting fishing stacks that allow you to reveal thought-of cards
  • Some amazing spelling routines
  • Easy access to the most frequently named cards
  • A built-in Stay-Stack section
  • And much more.

The Memorandum stack is easy to get into from Bicycle new deck order and you can easily get into Stay Stack and even back to new deck order! And, here's the crazy thing: you can go in and out of Juan Tamariz's Mnemonica with Woody's stack! (There's a sleight caveat that you need to consider, but it's the kind of thing that you can do automatically in your head without even thinking about it in performance.)

Woody also shares his technique to memorize the deck, which is just as interesting and wacky as you may expect! And he does into the history of the stack sharing some brand new historical findings of the true modern history of memdeck work.

It's rare that a professional of Woody's calibre shares his entire arsenal of memdeck work and Memorandum is exactly that. We were privy to a pre-release copy and can't recommend his work enough! Watch our exclusive interview with Woody to hear all about the stack in full detail.

We realize that not everyone will memorize this stack, and that many customers have already committed a stack to memory. But books like this only come a couple times per decade, and this is a chance to study how one brilliant mind has constructed his stack, and what he does with it. EVERYONE can learn a great deal from "Memorandum."
