Greetings one and all
I trust this finds you well, just wanted put out there a heads up about a BT that touches on a subject not really dealt with New Orleans prostitution in 1915 (think of the storytelling possibilities Smile
The book has been created by Paul Noffsinger and is available from Gemini Artifacts (creators of way too many cool items)
here is a blurb
"Gemini Artifacts is proud to present Paul Noffsinger’s 38 BLOCKS book test. This incredible pocket sized book is based on an actual book from 1915.

38 BLOCKS recreates one of New Orleans famous BLUE BOOKS. A Blue Book was in its simplest form a listing of prostitutes and local brothels located in the 38 block area in New Orleans called STORYVILLE.

Throughout its pages, you will find real names and places in history."
it does contain nudity (so not for the kiddies)

I myself ordered one so if you want something unique, join us under the red light.

I ordered this cause it'll be a good prop for a hauntique I'm building. I'm not sure I can memorize the table needed to actually divine the thought of person's attributes.

Indeed
these guys made a prop that would cost a huge chunk of change if one where to buy an original (and Vics stuff really could pass for one)
but maybe use the crib sheet somehow? (maybe on the back of a frame of a picture of a bldg ,one of the girls or a map of Storyville)

I ordered this the instant the email from Gemini landed. Love the storytelling possibilities and it's by Paul and Vic so we know it'll look amazing. Hope it doesn't take too long to reach Blighty...….

This looks great but I'm a little confused by the description of the routine. It says:

"The spectator reads the profile to themselves and learns much about the specific girl. They can learn her nationality or favorite flower. They can learn about her hair color or personality. After the spectator chooses and reads the profile silently, they turn to the next page and begin reading a list of names aloud. The names can be read in any order.

The work has been done and the performer now knows not only the name of the profile the spectator is looking at, but also her nationality, personality trait, hair type and a personal item."

Is there anything to stop them from assuming you just memorized the women listed on the opposite page and that's how you know which one they looked at?

If I follow your question they would have to assume you not only memorized every profile in the book but also every accompanying list of girls.
