I work in a restaurant every week and I have been reluctant to use the mental photography deck, not sure why, but I have seen the light! I put a routine similar to bill Malones into my repertoire, and it has killed! The visual printing of all the cards is just mind blowing to watch. I have always been a move monkey with card magic, but this just makes life so much easier!

This is the trick that initially got me into magic. After walking through the magic shop at Disneyland and seeing it done, I HAD to know how it was done... and so I spent $25 on it.

Bottom line is that Brian is right. It kills lay people. There's something absolutely convincing about being able to show every card in the deck, front and back blank and then instantly printing the deck before their very eyes.

Being asked to examine a deck is a problem for most though, but I feel that it can be dealt with in a number of ways. Personally, I like to vanish the deck after I'm done, which conveniently fits into my patter.

If it weren't so angle-sensitive, I think David Regal's Sudden Deck II could definitely add something to the presentation of this.

Very good idea to use the Sudden Deck II with the Mental Photography deck. But I wouldn't use the ending where all the cards are shown blank again.
Because it would be difficult to reverse the Sudden Deck II to show that you are back with only a piece of cardboard again.

Malone's Mental Photography deck routine is superb, I love it. What about a deck switch to b able to show the deck in the end of the trick? It could be nice too.

I thought so in the beginning of the video too, The trick itself doesn't start before 1:30.

Best presentation (other than Bill Malone's of course) I've seen for this deck yet:

Don Alan's "Pretty Sneaky" p. 19 "Nudist Deck" routine. Yes that's what they used to call it.

Ahh, the Mental Photography deck. One of my first tricks as well. I remember the one time I showed it to a bunch of friends and right at the end of the routine one of them, with a smirk on his face, went to heckle-mode saying: "How about you take one single card out of the deck and show it to us?" No problem with that, you can show them every single card, it just killed way more. In fact you could go all the way and purposely get people to try and heckle you on this one, if you're up for it.

Some months back I purchased the Magic Makers Mental Photography cards & DVD and this is a wonderful product.

The DVD that comes with it is superb - many routines, totally professional, well presented, highly recommended. The price for the set is like $10 -

I had a spectator today ask me about the strange "thickness" of the cards in the deck and she asked if she could handle them. Anyone run into this? Should I angle the deck downwards so it looks less thick?

I always try to hide the thickness of the cards and gaps by holding it down and diagonaly.

Have fun & Merry Christmas!

Michael Skinner would switch for a regular deck of double blanks when putting the cards back into the box. He would then set the deck onto the table, leaving the flap open, and then he would walk away to get his linking rings. If the spectator checked the deck out, it was exactly as it should be...a normal blank deck on both sides.

Goshman has a nice presentation for the Nudiest Deck, as it's called in his book.
