"I have always wanted to present a close-up version of Cardiographic but have been unable to create my dream pad until recent advances in material technology made it possible.
"My criteria was simple, I wanted a pad that would comfortably fit in my pocket. That could be done surrounded under the closest scrutiny. It had to be self-contained and needed a fast reset for strolling, and most important of all, it had to look impossible."
- MARTIN LEWIS

With Close-up Cardiographic, Martin has taken his classic sketchpad Rising Card to the next level. The effect is the same as Cardiographic, but built for close-up performances; a drawing of a selected card rises from a drawing of a deck of cards. The resulting impossible object is handed out as a souvenir.

  • The brand new super-clean method is self-contained and angle-proof.
  • The audience sees you draw on the pad prior to the card rising.
  • Fast reset for restaurant or strolling.
  • Includes 50 giveaway pages.
  • Made in America and built to last.

This trick has always been my favorite and was dreaming of a closeup version. This one fits the billl. The video is very informative and the gimmick is very easy to use but the video does not go into making a new one with much detail. Like what to do if it gets damaged or stained.

Nice trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 2nd, 2018
This close-up version of Cardiographic is a nice trick. My gimmick was well made and the online video instructions, including tuning tips, are clear and easy to follow. My pad would bind a little initially, so I followed the advice on the video and removed a few pages. Very happy that I purchased this.

I was a bit concerned as to the practicality of this effect. However it is almost instantly repeatable and super practical

Excellent! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 4th, 2018
Gimmick is very well made, comes with refills, and additional refills are reasonably priced!

It's easy to see that the design and execution of this trick was carefully thought out, from the card rising to how the paper is given out.

Very easy to do with a little confidence and practice. No difficult moves. For the easiest performance, I recommend that you use a "card selection" that can be done in the spectator's hands alone so that you can hold onto the notebook already to go. How about you "cut deeper"?

I love this! I definitely recommend. I wish it was about twenty dollars cheaper, I'd buy several of them.

Amazing effect and great value Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 28th, 2018
This effect is incredible and will allow me to carry it around and perform it all the time.

The price is great and the prop is well made.

Mr. Lewis does a great job explaining the inner workings and provides tips for keeping the prop working and well maintained.

Very durable gimmick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 14th, 2018
I can proudly say what a brilliant idea by Martin Lewis! Ive been wanting a cardiographic but I dont do stage magic. I just do close up or street magic and im very gladly this has come! Dream come true now! When I opened the box I was kinda hesitant about the gimmick. Seems like the gimmick will be ripped of once i flip it but as soon as I followed the advice of Martin. boom! Very nice! Very durable gimmick! Cant believe it! Thanks!

Great Effect, Poor QC Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 25th, 2018
I love Martin Lewis effects and his thinking. I have many of his effects and I enjoy his clear teaching and quality of his items.

Unfortunately, this item missed quality control and came out miss-made. I'm sure I will be able to fix it to make it workable but for the price of the effect it should not be necessary.

This item is definately a worker. I think it unfortunate I need to write such a review for a magician I have the highest regard for. But in the video Martin states that he is a perfectionist and the effort he goes to to satisfy his desire for perfection. I only wished some of that perfectionism could have been practiced on the item I purchased.

I would like to think that this was a one off mistake, but in any case we deserve better when we shell out this kind, or really, any amount of money.

Again, well worth the purchase, but hopefully yours comes in working condition not needing tweaking.

Easy to do Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 18th, 2018
I now use this as a regular in my close up show at the restaraunt I work at. I have them keep the card they chose to compare it with the drawing at the end.

This is easy to do, mystifying, and you'll learn it quick. If you can't do this within 20 minutes of watching the video, you might need a different hobby.

Get this - use it! It will make your reputation!
