I have some effects that have a Handwriting Analysis as a pseudo explanation (Detecting which written nam is of the loved and which one of the hated person / Sibyll by Phedon)

So I tried to get some resources on Handwriting Analysis to actually improve my pattern be more secure while talking about it and maybe give some actual details.

In my search I found the book "Handwriting Analysis : Putting It to Work for You" by Andrea McNichol. And I can only recommend it.

It is very detailed/easy to read and has a ton of helpful information that can easily be adapted into your presentation. Furthermore you could, if you study it deeply, give out actual handwriting readings.

Also at the start of the book there are some squares with some lines or circles inside. You could perfectly give the instruction to a spectator to draw a square and put in some lines and then analyse that like in the book (Past/future focused person or Creative vs. organized person)

So overall it is no book about mentalism or magic. But it probably will be a nice addition to anybody who does redings or something connected to handwriting.

Lastly it is really nice that this high quality material does not have the price tag of high quality mentalism material. In comparison to magic books it is rediculously cheap. if that would be marketed as a masterclass in handwriting to mentalists it would probably cost 150$

Very valid point. Reading about handwriting will teach you tools you’ll use your entire life, for a fraction of what you’d pay for a mentalism book. Same for resources on palmistry, to take another example. There’s a plethora of books that cost nothing but that will make you a better performer.

Wow the first answer is from Phedon. I'm very honored. You, respectively your amazing DVD Sibyl is the reason I am reading this book right now ;-).
And the idea about letting the spectator draw a square with other things in it and give some additional reading is referred exactly to your project Smile (after the crumble and the name I let them draw the square to get even more reading potential)

So basically I have to thank you that I am now that deep into the topic of analysing handwriting ;-)

Dear friend, believe me, the pleasure is all mine. Thank you for your words, they go straight to my heart. I am deeply honored to read that I have helped you discover something new to you, and kind of guided your first steps onto this path. What else could a creator ask for?

Never hesitate to reach out, should you need anything. Enjoy this trip. It's a most rewarding one.

Best, always


Phedon

P.S: You should consider getting Rudy Hunter's amazing 'Draw Me a Tree' DVD. You will thank me, I promise.

My own 'Reading Writing' is the only book that includes mentalism routines (11 of them) in which handwriting — and graphology — play a central role. It also teaches all the graphology needed to do readings and contains a section on using graphology in magic.

Alias Divination was Annemann's favorite trick. It is in his book, and was by Oscar Weigle. I knew Oscar. I didn't know Annemann.

I do handwriting analysis for private parties and corporate events and I also peform a handwriting analysis routine in my mentalism show.

"Reading Writing" is a good book, I also endorse it.

I also highly recommend "Speed Learning Graphology" by Julian Moore:

https://www.coldreading.co/shop/graphology-book-ebook-pdf/

When you are doing handwriting analysis at a gig, you have 2-5 minutes to do the reading, so you don't have to get too in depth into graphology.

You just need to know the basics and combine it with basic body language and cold reading techniques.

People relly get into it.

The only problem is that very few people use cursive handwriting anymore, so you have to interpret printed letters using the same graphology techniques and there are less variables such as loop size, etc.

I should also add I’m looking forward to reading the other material mentioned in this thread! It’s a really interesting thing all round, and I find it especially useful for guys who think the whole palmistry thing is a bit too jazz and jewellery.

Hello, Waters! I'm very sorry for the long delay; I've been swamped and haven't been following the thread for a while.

The ebook edition, as mentioned, is an ePub file that's delivered to you, to be read in Apple Books or Adobe Reader, or with a tiny conversion step, in a Kindle device or app.

Thank you very much for your interest! Smile <3
