....is very soon to be available on DVD. Hopefully by the end of November and available from http://www.derrenbrown.co.uk

If you have not yet purchased a copy of the video......BUY IT!!!

If you have a copy of the video....BUY THE DVD...you KNOW that the video will eventually wear out!!!!

Seriously though, this is a very, very good piece of instructional material that not only delves into the technical aspects of the effects but has insight into how Derren applies misdirection and "pace" to compliment his beautifully contructed routines.

I am looking forward to this being available on DVD! I wonder if H&R will be handling this?

I'm looking forward to this myself. Derren is truly skilled. Hopefully it will be at a fair price.

Thanks for letting us know.

BTW it's about time this is being released on DVD!

Here's what I found out

From the main site:

We are currently in the process of releasing "Devil's Picturebook" on DVD and aim to have it available somewhere near the end of November.

The cost will be £35.00 (double DVD) therefore, upon release, remaining VHS versions will go down to £20.00, so you may want to wait until then before ordering.

This is fantastic news, thanks for letting us know, I had the video a few years back, and somehow managed to lose it when I moved home.

I gave myself several kicks for that :-(

The Devil's Picture Book is the single most impressive demonstration of sleight of hand I've ever seen on video. And f.y.i.- I'm a highly picky person when it comes to videos and books and what not. Yes I've seen Lennart Green and I agree that he's amazing with cards as well. I just can't see myself really performing much of his material. This is different.

Before buying this video I did a search on the Café forum and was a little disappointed by the description of the effects. Seemed like a lot of pick a card type tricks and cards-under-box type stuff and frankly, neither one of those plots sounded intriguing to me after twelve years of doing card magic. I still chose to buy the video and I couldn't be happier. Mr. Brown's effects are direct, strong and likely to fool the pants off of even the advanced card worker. Note- you will need to have some "chops" if you wish to perform these tricks the way Derren does, but there has never been better motivation to train those fingers than watching this video. Oh, and if you've never seen Mr. Brown's mentalism work...I hope you're prepared to be destroyed.

I would be more interested if he taught mentalism.

Tor, he does teach mentalism on there. It is essentially broken into two - the first is very direct, stunning card magic (where Derren shows his great skill with a deck of cards).

The second IS mentalism (with cards) - starting with mechanical methods (his take of OOTW etc) - in my opinion, his Extreme Mental Effort is one of the best mentalism card effects there is - it shows how mentalism is all about presentation. He then moves onto psychological effects, involving effects without the need for cards at all.

All in all a very, VERY good video. It is great for the effects, but it also nice to see Derren performing, and his humour also comes to the fore (Golly Highworth 'mincing around London at 3 in the morning... "he'll always be with you". Classic)

All in all, very highly recommended.

I think it's kind of sad that this is coming to DVD. I'vre had the video for a while and never knew where it was set when I hit play - Meant I learnt in bits and always a suprise.

I would prefer for him to release a new book on his thoughts or more recent work on mentalism.

Hasn't he done that already with 'Absolute magic'. The principles in that book apply as much to his current work as to his card magic.

Nope, absolute magic is NOT on his current work. According to Derren Brown himself, that book was written just before he left card work to go onto what he does now. He also admitted that its a totally different mindset when the book was written

Cheers

Just a word of advice to all those watching it for the first time. ENJOY!! Derren is a great performer with excellent timing, framing and skill - his misdirection is second to none. Every detail is so well thought out that it will inspire people to work harder on their own routines.

I know it may be difficult for magicians, but try not to work out how its done the first time you watch it. I wish I could go back in time and not know the explainations. It fooled the pants off of me not because he is a great card worker (which he is) but because it is so beautifully executed.

I also wish I was as spontanously witty as he is... this guy has it all!
