You should read Sadowitz's version of this. It zings.

Interesting. I'd like to read it.

Have anyone mentioned about the glimpse described in amateur magician's handbok by henry hay
“It’s not what you do that matters, or even how you do it;
it’s what the spectators perceive you as doing that matters.
That’s the MAGIC they’ll remember.”

I am very interested in Glimpse techniques
and have encountered many throughout the literature.
Two factors to consider are the actual physical way of exposing the card in order to get the glimpse, and secondly, the method or motivation or tactic to actually get the glimpse.
In Charlie Miller's glimpse, periferal vision is used while the spectators shoulders are held.
Lorayne also uses peripheral in his effective glimpse from Quantum Leaps.
John Bannon has modified J.K. Hartman's Transfer Glimpse to a Transfer Shuffle Glimpse. The card is peeked as the deck is in transit from left hand to right hand for an overhand shuffle (very effective).
Steve Draun's excellent Fan Glimpse occurs during the action of Pressure fanning the deck.
Dai Vernon's brilliant glimpse in his Out of Touch is one of the most devious I have encountered and occurs at a perfect time (typical Vernon).
In Erens' Concertos for Pasteboards, Jorg Weber employs a very deceptive cover for his glimpse, which makes perfect sense within the context of his fine effect, Feminine Intuition.
Study as many as you can and focus on what makes them deceptive.

I'll also mention a very effective peek done in conjunction with Marlo's Incomplete Faro Control.
When the right hand strips the telescoped packet, a one handed fan is performed so the participant can confirm the selection is still present. It is at this time the left hand drops to the table.
In the natural action of the magician averting his gaze, the left hand key is glimpsed. Perfect.
I first encountered this in Jim Swain's Pretty Sneaky from Don't Blink, also Paul Swinford's Hidden Countdown from Sharpe's Expert Card Mysteries.

Many of the glimpses mentioned above are incantations of Carmen D'Amico's Pivot- Jog Glimpse.

DB's Devils Picturebook has a brilliant peek - Richard Schiffer's, but I can't spell the surname. It is absolutely flawless, but better for sitting down. Doublethink is the effect.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that's Richard Busch's peek.

Marlo has a devious thought of card routine using a suuuuuper subtle glimpse. Check it out. Without Tears.

Kostya Kimlat teaches a simple but very effective peak from a dribbled pack on his Roadrunner Cull set.
