Hello everyone,

I'm very new to the mentalism community and have been quite an isolated figure but have been studying the craft for roughly a decade. I've made very few friends in the industry and have largely kept myself to myself. As a way of introducing myself to you all I'd like to offer a short PDF teaching my 'go to' business card peek I've been using for the last 2 years. I am very fond of it and I hope many of you will love it as much as I do. It is a first draft taken from an ebook that I hope to be releasing later in the year. To receive your free copy just send me a friendly hello in my PM with your email address and Ill send a copy out to you. I wont be keeping anyone's information for marketing purposes, I just want to give back to the community. Also you must have at least 50 posts for obvious reasons. I look forward to hearing from you and any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Arthur sent me his idea. For those interested in business card peeks then be sure to get on this before he takes it away.

It's simple to do and only needs a stack of cards and a pen. It uses a move some will know or have done, but not in this way. I've seen one similar, but not in this way. The written card is cleanly put into the middle of the stack and never moved from that area... and it's not a simple pinky break thing.

Very good idea, Arthur. It's well worth knowing to keep in anyone's arsenal.

One of my favorite quotes: "A critic is a legless man who teaches running."

Yeah I agree. It's clever and simple. In full disclosure I've only just read it, but I like it, especially the cover. Kinda stumped that others haven't done it this way before, it seems so natural an idea in hindsight. Very nice,I wanna use this.

Hi All,

I have to concur with the comments above. It's impromptu and you get a full peek... very nice.

Interesting twist to a business card peek. I hope that when Arthur releases it, he’ll also include a video. Good thinking Arthur!

Played with this for a bit... I was using double blank playing card stock. The mechanics work wonderfully. Now to take it out to the real world and test drive it!

Many thanks for sending me this, Arthur. It's certainly unlike anything I've come across before and has a lot of potential.

Thank you for all the kind words on this post and to those who messaged me privately, It means a lot!

As you can imagine my Inbox has been hit hard but I think I've managed to reply to everyone so far. If you've messaged me but not received your PDF it may have got lost or deleted. Just pop me another PM and Ill get it out to you as soon as I can.

Yet again thank you for the warm support it means the world. Ill be leaving this offer open for a couple more days so all the Café regulars get a chance to see it. If any of you guys are having success out there in the real world with this id love to hear from you!

All the Best

For those of you who use playing cards in your mentalism (Touchy subject I know) this is also a very deceptive peek. You can have a card selected and returned to the deck which your head turned the entire time(Eliminating the thought of a M***** deck) and still have access to the card with no breaks at all. Its very useful when someone hands you a borrowed shuffled deck and your not in the mood to bust out sleight of hand!

Just to add - this is a great simple wee peek and I'll definitely be having a play with it

Great stuff Arthur!
