When Andreu first wrote me about Intimum Sacrarium I was very interested in hearing about it's contents.

If you love workable fooling AAA material (that's anytime, anywhere for anyone) then you're in for a real treat...

Interested?

Here are my thoughts laid out for you in a one take quick review.

After the release of Mindsight and Legion, I had a lot of amazing feedback from performers all over the world. It was great, but I felt eager to work on new ideas that would be oriented towards more Impromptu Mentalism.

Intimum Sacrarium is the result after years of work and passion for the art.

Here are some images of the book:

In I.S. you will find effects based on:

* Suggestion / Influence
* Predictions
* Mindreading
* Which Hand
* ESP
* Tarot
* P**ks
* Origami
* Dual Reality
* Readings
* Contributions


Every single piece is direct, practical and surefire. Some of them may be performed over the phone.

You will find innovating ideas to incorporate for casual / one-on-one, close-up, parlour or stage performances.

I feel deeply humbled and honored to have received such great acceptance from the biggest names in the industry as well as Murphy's Magic.

Here are some reviews / quotes:

"Direct mentalism that has been thought out and filled with a punch. Very clever thinking." - Banachek

"I think you have a lot of great ideas there. The book itself looks great and is a wonderful presentation of the effects. Congratulations on a job well done." - Richard Osterlind

If you're a fan of "Free Will", "Which Hand", ESP / Zener symbols, Drawing Dupes, as well as a ton of Impromptu, simple concepts which you can perform on the spot, then you will find something inside the Intimum Sacrarium.

Thanks for all your emails and continued support. Smile

I know Andreu from long time and I have always liked his thinking. I just finished to read his book and I find some really nice ideas (especially the opening routine). I like his touch to some well known methods and the way he creates all the procedure of the routines.
I will be using for sure the REVELATION routine which inspired me to add some other bits in it Smile also the 3 effect in Nailed Nostrum are worth considering.
Well done my friend I wish you great success with this book and a wonderfull Christmas 🎄

Thanks Luca, it's great to know that you enjoyed Revelation as well as Hailed Nostrum inspired you, there are a lot of subtleties here and there. Smile

Wonderful Christmas to you too!

Hello guys,
I had the chance to read the routine “Extraordinary Perception” out of Andreu’s new book Intimum Sacrarium. He was kind enough to send it over to me for he knows my keen interest in ESP-Card routines and techniques. After I had the chance of performing it on my gig last night I now want to give it a review.

“Extraordinary Perception” is an interesting routine that makes use of 4-5 sets of the five ESP symbols shuffled by the spectator. They are dealt in a few piles the performer turns around so he can’t see them anymore and the spectator is asked to give you one pile after the other until he is left with just one packet. He is than asked to peek at the bottom card of the pile. After a bit of mindreading you announce the right symbol.
The technique is nothing like you would imagine and it’s extremely clever. It is artistically constructed and a real fooler because it is impossible to backtrack. I always have esp cards with me and with the technique I learned from Andreu I am now able to perform an amazing new piece that I will happily fall back to whenever I got the extra suspicious spectator at the table.

After I read and learned this piece I will be ordering the full book from Andreu!

Thanks for chiming in Jes!

Extraordinary Perception is one of those routines that can really hit even the most skeptic of spectators, you start and end completely clean and the spectator can freely see and shuffle the ESP symbols as much as they want. The performer is still able to divine the symbol below the final pile that was left on the table.

Also, as some of you may already know, I'm a big fan of the Which Hand effect, so the book contains at least 3 new approaches. I'm sure some of you will definitely enjoy them! Smile

Atm, I have around 30 copies - of this first batch - of Intimum Sacrarium left with me.

If you're interested in a signed and numbered copy just PM me.

Recently I bought Andreu's new release Intimum Sacrarium. Here is my review.

I was suprised by how well the book is made. The artwork (you will find abundant artwork) is beautiful and the book is very well written. Although the effects are impromptu in nature, Andreu added a few things inside so you can perform right away.

So let's get into the actual effects:

REVELATION:

This is basically a drawing duplication. Although its very clever, the drawing that is included can be a little bit suspicious, so you may need to work on the reveal part to make it look more convincing.

COLOR VISION

This one is one is my favourite of the entire book. The principle that Andreu is using here is really genius and it can be applied to anything.
You can really do it anywhere anytime and fool even other mentalists. I already have tons of different ideas. The effect is a really clever use of this principle where not only you reveal the color created by a spectator but you can also do a reading with it. Im sure I'll use it all the time now.

A SECRET MEMORY

A Secret Memory is using the same principles for revealing memories of a spectator. Its one of the most powerful things you can do. Its really good and it shows Andreu's unique thinking.

A HANDFUL OF MIRACLES

Another gem. I've been looking a lot for a good impromptu which hand routine and this is the best I've found so far. Other methods are either not reliable or too obvious. This one blows them out of the water. Not only you reveal in which hand the spectator is holding some matches but also how many of them they have, then you can even predict the outcome... again, it's not only the routine that you get, but also the principle which is worth the price of the book itself. Also Andreu provides a ton of diffrent routines and applications, as well as how to integrate it with his "Legion" app for name divination.
HAILED NOSTRUM

It's one of the variations of previous effect. Its a really clever and unique method and presentation and it again highlights Andreu's unique thinking. It can also be used to do accurate warm readings.

THE FORTUNE TELLER

It's the perfect effect for stage wich a very clever combination of few known principles. I really like the plot and presentation ideas.
Really well thought and scripted.

INSIGHT

This one will take just a little bit of work. It's a really clever idea as the gimmick can be used for very pure mindreading effects. You can apply it to any possible effect out there with envelopes that you already perform, it's vey clean and devious and you can do so much with it. It's one of those things that make you think "***, why didn't I think about it first?"

EXTRAORDINARY PERCEPTION

I didn't use ESP cards before but after reading this I think I might just buy an ESP deck just to do this effect. It's ultra clean, self-working and takes no skill.
The spectator makes all the decisions hands-off and then you reveal the symbol below one of the piles. There is zero memorization or complicated process. Its very good and they'll have no clue about how you did it. If you're into ESP routines, this is a must have.

CONTRIBUTIONS

I wont go into much details but these are really nice effects from diffrent authors. However Coldly Grail by Niels Krojgaard is one of the most powerful effects I've ever come across. You can also perform it using the Insight principle and it will seriously blow some minds, it's that powerful. Also it's perfect if you do any kind of cold reading. Really amazing work.

To sum everything up, the book is great! Filled of hidden gems and principles I've never seen before, I would say that it represents Andreu's very original thinking and is well worth the price.

It feels to me like a very refreshing read, where all the effects are 100% surefire, which is something rare to find these days were billetless and propless material is much more common but never as convincing.

If you like very clean, straightforwad, reliable and workable material, this is the book for you.

Andreu’s new book is a joy to read as everything within its pages seems like it would work well in a performance setting.

I will be honest and state that I have yet to perform anything from the book as I just finished reading it, but plan to add a few things in the near future.

Lets get down to the effects:

Revelation

A type of drawing duplication feat

Thoughts: great layering of methods that nobody will have a clue on how you did what you did. Love that he included everything in the book to perform this piece, and details everything out.

I like the fact that Andreu gives you his complete presentation to every effect, and crediting is also given after each and every effect.

Color Vision

A color reading with hardly any props

Thoughts: Worker, this one is one of my favorites, and one that I will be adding soon. Easy to do, and allows you to focus on presentation

A Secret Memory

A way to tell a participant a secret memory they once had.

Thoughts: Easy and to the point

A Handful of Miracles

A which hand type of effect done with matches

Thoughts: Another good one, if you like which hand effects, like Tequila Hustler, Hands Down, etc, etc, this one is worth taking a look at.

There are various variations taught as well, using more than one spectator, as well as lying and telling the truth

Hailed Nostrum

A three round version of which hand
Round 1: Impossible Revelation
Round 2: Unconscious Choice
Round 3: Conscious Choice

Thoughts: Great thinking and lead up to make the which hand effect appear stronger and stronger during the rounds.

Readings

Thoughts on readings using personality traits from the above which hand effects

The Fortune Teller

Matching exact actions to what spectator does are predicted

Thoughts: Some might not like this because it uses a well known technique that some may not be used to doing, but if you go out and try this, as Andreu has time and time again, I am sure it will go down a storm.

Insight

This to me is the best effect of the whole book. It has a very 4th dimensional feel to it, but is different.
I predict many people will be using this one in their shows at one point or another.
Will need to prepare a few things for this, but should be well worth the effort

Extraordinary Perception

Divining an ESP symbol

Thoughts: If you like ESP type effects, then this is the one for you, if not skip it. Very good method, but I have never used ESP cards so wont be doing this one.

Then we get to the contributions portion of the book:

1) The Coldly Grail by Neils Krojgaard Reading someones mind while giving a reading
2) Efflorescence by Steve Drury An intimate origami act which connects and enchants
3) Scrying On giving readings
4) Nox Arcana by Primo Blass-Tchang Tarot deck effect
5) Prophecy by Cedric Taylor Selected card and prediction match
6) Being There by Christopher Taylor

That’s pretty much it.

A good investment, good solid routines.

You will at least get 2-3 routines to use in your work, if not more, and solid ideas and scripting for your previous work.

Thanks
