In the case of the diary and I believe ash, I am under the impression it is a printed version of handwritten material so it would not have the indentations or roughness.

The diary reprinted from notes asembled by the great luna rose and ash I am assuming by the doctor from his notes and her drawings. The textured paper used in the diary adds a roughness that would mask ink - indent well if you wanted to say it was the original.

I just read through the discussion and to me it reads a little like it's about running without being chased.
Selling it as a case study is brilliant, since minimum 99% of the people we'll be presenting this to, well have never ever had their hands on a real psychological case study from that time. So they can't tell if it's genuine at all, so if you don't present it like an idiot (I have this totally ungaffed book that my cursed grandfather gave me blablabla...) They won't be suspicious at all. Even if someone may be, the other 99% won't question it.

Because of her age this case study would have been anonymous. The book cover will have case study A**** M. on the cover

For additional credibility there will be a website written by one of the "case study participants". You will have that website address. How you use it is up to you.

On another note. The $110 pre-sale price is killing me. I know how much this book costs to produce and way more than I want to sell at this price are being bought.

Fair warning. New Years day the pre-order will go to $125. I'll keep it there through the 10th and then it goes to full retail $175

Thanks guys and I'm really enjoying the discussion going on here.

BTW there will be some additional material and possibly something from Vic Nadata Smile that can be purchased to further enhance your presentations

You've seen the book? You're going to make some of us (who have only seen the pages posted on this thread) jealous! Smile Did you see a prototype or the actual finished product? Could you give a more detailed review to those of us who are still on the fence about this? I was curious as to whether the images are printed in portrait or landscape orientation and was wondering what the non-diary portions of the book look like. Thanks!

Having dealt with many "case study" materials, research reports, and hospital records of adults and juveniles over a 45 plus year career in the mental health "industry", I believe the idea of the colection of a scanned volume and a single page original is Brilliant...and any spec who doesn't accept it as 90%+ as credibly and likely as the "real deal" is, imho, such a skeptic, that I would not even want to perform for them....as they would have little to no ability to temporarily suspend judgement for the sake of an entertainment or a curious or mysterious "experiment" in "human psychology and suggestion".
I can't to get my hands on Ash,...and that is after I had vowed to hold any more such purchasess until later in 2014.....ha, ha...my resolution was blown before the New Year even began...!

Here you see the progression of her illness as she sinks deeper and deeper.
she begins seeing her deceased Mother. Hallucinations both visual and audio are not uncommon in schizophrenics.

April- one month after her mother dies

July- three months later

Oddly the paper is the same color in both pictures. Weird lightening Smile

Oh wow, that's really disturbing and if that is in the progression I really want to see how the final ones look like. Wish I could already have it here!

Since discovering outlaw a couple if years ago, I have always said that if I won the lottery or other ridiculous amount if money, I would immediately put in an order for two of every effect outlaw has. It's nice to dream....

Hi All...

I'm really liking this item...and I think the case study "copies" is a fantastic idea. However, and I don't mean to nit-pick...but in Rick's sample above the little (mentally challenged) 8 year old girl...correctly spelled "picture.." Would this be OK in our sample context of this little girl...? Or would she spell the word more phonetically i.e. "pitcer..."? Or other simplified spelling...? In addition...she is spelling other words correctly throughout the content of her diary. Or does it really matter...or would a spectator even care...or notice...?


Continued Success,
Dan

Dan,

I was never a great speller growing up but I believe I knew how to correctly spell the word picture by age 8. Probably running without being chased. However, it is never a bad idea to question things like this; it keeps us sharp.

Actually , good catch Doc on the spelling. that's only a couple of entries. There are many mis-spelled words in the book. The book starts off very well written (for an 8 year old) and then entries, spelling, pictures, start to degrade as the book goes on.

Its a very visual transition. You can flip through from start to finish and see her illness progress in a rather startling way after the passing of her mother.
