Write of Passage offers really deceptive peek methods using playing cards and business cards, as well as very effective constructions of Notepad/Post-it gimmicks that can be handled casually by the spectator. Inspiration and credit dues are given where needed.
Mr. Straker's particular choice of gimmick would be my choice when using playing cards and business cards, and of course the very common, ordinary post-its. Word writing is not an issue for me when using these, as their size limit what the spectators "write" or draw without things blending together. Use birthdays, signs, playing cards, shapes, numbers. I really enjoyed reading the manuscript and the tips and peek methods here. I really, really love the peek methods.
Mr. Robertson's U.I. is also an enjoyable offer, which supplied me with further useful tips on pattern and presentations, I particularly liked the one where a spectator reads her friend's mind and very openly "divines" the thought of card. That is powerful. I really liked the business card wallet idea, and will work on my own modification to it to see if it works for an even more deceptive peek based on WOPassage, and the U.I. gimmick is perfect here for more complex words and drawings. Why not use a perfect center tear and peek like Mr. Osterlind does? I just have really bad eyesight even with prescription glasses and cannot properly and quickly do the work. Further, I don't even touch the paper, they keep it and send it telepathically. Also, I will try Wayne Houchin's Stigmata now with more confidence. I also liked the Notepad ideas in U.I. and will use it with a smaller pocket pad and the U.I. gimmick, combining it with the peek method used by Mr Straker for his Ultra Pad.

All in all, excellent products and new techniques for me, being previously unfamiliar with these devices and their advantages.

Thank you gentlemen for your methods.

After receiving many requests recently, I have decided to re-release "Write of Passage" as a stand alone e-book product. Originally this was included with the Sniper Pad release as a bonus so anyone who bought my Sniper Pad will already have this as part of the package they received.

Write of Passage is an e-book fully explaining how to construct and use a suite of 4 highly practical imp......n & peek devices (arts and crafts required!). It has been reviewed in the past, please do a search to see other feedback. They are contained within different common items we all use in performance already - deck of cards (not the box), post it pad, stack of index or business cards, and notepad. Full details of handing are given and the peeks taught are ALL highly deceptive.

This is a private sale that will be directly supplied my be and I am pricing at $10 this to make it accessible to as many as possible (Matt Mello style). It is an e-book that will be delivered via email.

Please PM me if you would like a copy for yourself.
