Mental Blueprints

Mental Blueprints

I released an eBook in 2013 called “Mental Blueprints” as a production of The Magic Network, together with two other mentalists. The book explains how to perform eight new and original mentalism (or, “mental magic”) routines. The magic community has given the book very positive feedback so far. Including:

“eQueen is a nice little card effect that requires no cards. V’s instruction on patter is well-taken, particularly for folks who want the advantage of a script that’s fully laid out.”
-Steve Freidberg

“Foreign Thought is potentially very strong. It is very bold and reminds me of how far mentalism has come in the past decade. Fourteen years ago – this was the sort of thinking that Derren Brown was using to make waves at magic conventions. eQueen is a useful addition to previous work in this area. An excellent subtlety is used at the very beginning of the effect which helps achieve most of the trick there and then.”
-Bob Hummer
“eQueen is an interesting approach to a theme that has been deftly handled by Bryn Reynolds (Seven) and, to some extent, Marl Elsdon (On The Mark)…the structure is sound and this is truly impromptu. Induced Anomalous Trichromancy is the standout effect in the ebook. This deals with a psychological ploy that has been used before in Mentalism, but this approach is new to me. There is some preparation required…but this is very clever and the kind of effect that doesn’t evoke a “card trick” reaction. In fact, given the premise, I do wonder if an alternative to using playing cards might not be possible. I’ll have to give this some thought. But it’s a worthwhile pursuit, as the idea is great. This was the highlight of the ebook for me.”
-Eric Samuels
“I just had to smile when I read Cuppie Quickie. It would have fooled me.”
-Atlas Brookings
