"Phantini released some of the most overlooked and powerful mentalism. Those original booklets found a permanent home in my library and are a constant source of inspiration. I'm excited that Richard Osterlind is bringing some of this material to a whole new generation of Mentalists. If you know Richard Osterlind, you already know what a great teacher he is. Don't miss this one!" - Patrick Redford

"As a young mentalist I was very inspired by the work released by Phantini. I know that he was also an inspiration to Banacheck and so many other top mental performers that you know and love. I am excited to see that his work is being brought back to life in a new medium for performers all over the world to be able to discover the incredible secrets of Phantini." - Paul Draper

"You’re basically paying one of the best-known mentalists in the world to spill the beans on a ton of little-known techniques. I’m going to use this material to fool my mentalist friends!" - Michael Kent

Phantini was one of the world's most successful performing mentalists in the 50s, 60s and 70s. His material was ahead of its time, and as devious as it was bullet-proof.

Unknown to even today's top pros, Phantini's mentalism has been studied, modernized and further polished by one of the most successful and influential mentalists alive today, Richard Osterlind.

With their forces combined, you're getting underground secrets, combined with modern techniques, all presented by one of the most experienced TEACHERS of mentalism in the world.

Included in this product are SIX full-length polished routines, including a bonus book-page forcing technique that alone is worth the price of admission.




Opener Book Test
The mentalist shows the audience two ordinary paper back books. One is given to a member of the audience and another spectator is invited on stage. Once on stage the spectator places a business card anywhere in the middle of the book the mentalist is holding and peeks at a page number and a word. After she identifies the word and a page number she writes the page number on the business card. The number she writes down is then given to the members of holding a book and they open their book to the page number on the business card. While the seated audience members opens their books at the page written on the business card the mentalist addresses another member of the audience and asks her to think of someone close to her and write it down and seal it in an envelope. The audience members with books write down the fist few words at the top of the page that they have previously opened to.

The mentalist jots something down on a pad of paper and reveals the thought of page number and word from the spectator who was brought on stage. Next he reveals the word written down by the spectator. Finally the spectator reveals the exact person that a member of the audience is just thinking of.

Psychic Symbols
Three spectators are invited on stage. The mentalist shows the spectators a stack of cards each with a different symbol on it. A fourth spectator is brought on stage and blindfolds the mentalist. Each volunteer on stage looks at a symbol from the stack and the mentalist correctly divines each symbol that the spectators are looking at.

The Moving Hand Writes
Two spectators are on stage. The mentalist shuffles a deck of cards, deals five cards to a table and asks one of the spectators to look at any of the dealt cards on the table. After he peeks at a card he mixes the cards on the table then the second spectator also peeks at a card. This is all done while the mentalist is several feet away. The mentalist tells both volunteers which cards they are thinking of and one of the spectator is asked to take her seat in the audience. With one spectator remaining on stage the mentalist shuffles the cards and hands the deck to the spectator. An envelope containing a single playing card is brought out of the mentalists pocket and placed on the table. The spectator deals cards one at a time into the mentalist hands and stops at any time. The card that he stops at matches the card in the envelope.

Incredible Insight #2
A paper bag and seven or eight pieces of paper from a newspaper. A volunteer selects a portion of the newspaper, crumbles up the piece of paper and tosses it in the paper bag. After that all of the other pieces are crumbled up and tossed in the bag and mixed. The mentalist then reaches in the bag and pulls out the exact piece that the spectator chooses and also reveals a thought of word from that piece of newspaper.

Micro Crypto
Spectators just think of one of several charms on a table. After they have thought of a charm you reveal it with out anything written down. As a finale they choose one of several charms and you are able to correctly predict which charm they will choose.

Phantini's Magazine Miracle
Someone chooses a page freely from a magazine with a playing card. They put an X on that page. Another spectator looks at the X and chooses a word where the X has been made. With all those random choices their chosen word matches a prediction that has been in full view since the beginning of the routine.

Consummate artist consummate material Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 8th, 2018
Phantini would be proud and honored a consummate artist as Richard Osterlind honored his material with such prestige & meticulous care I'm glad that Richard decided to Dust these gems off the bookshelf because of his expertise and experience he revives this long lost material
for contemporary settings! - yes I could go into an in-depth description of each presentation but why waste time with such high caliber material I advise you if you are an ardent student of the craft to acquire this master session immediately because there's much here to learn besides the material itself as how Richard thinks an inside view in terms of why & what of each presentation's choices within structural logic of each routines procedures enhancing the original material without omitting the Routines effect ! And Richards thoughts on subtleties misdirection and audience management! Thank You Richard and Thank you 🐧 looking forward to the next Legacy! One more thing if you truly do read minds telepathically after a few drinks! then this is not the download for you!

In a word, terrific Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 8th, 2018
If you make one mentalism purchase this holiday season, this should be it. It is terrific.

I was familiar with Gene Grant a/k/a Phantani, and I have digital copies of his books. I was stunned at how consistently good his material is, yet no one ever mentions him as one of the greats. In particular, Micro Crypto looked interesting, but way too involved, and I was too lazy to learn it. Now that I've seen Richard Osterlind explain and perform it, I'm blown away. He makes it all easy, and the routine itself is stunningly deceptive. Actually, all six routines are wonderful workers. (I'm going to use all of them.) And apart from perhaps buying a f****** book and a bunch of those Micro Crypto charms, you don't need much to pull these things off. Three simple utility moves stand out too: an easy p*** and two ways to f**** a page from a book or magazine. Both methods are so good, and I'd never seen them before.

If this is what we should expect in the Osterlind-taught "Legend" series, I'm excited for more. This is not the usual stuff and is one of Osterlind's best teaching videos. Phantini lives!

I’d give it 0 stars but unfortunately that’s not an option Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 23rd, 2019
The performances put me to sleep, the tutorials are equally boring, repetitive, and difficult to follow, the methods are NOT the “hidden gems” they’ve been elevated as and are really quite common in the world of mentalism, and everything is SO EXPENSIVE! You need to get all sorts of charms, newspapers paper stock from photo stores, special pens, nearly impossible to find envelopes. AND YOU NEED BUISNESS CARDS WITH WHITE BACKS!

If I could, I would march in to the penguin magic HQ and demand my Money back, BUT YOU GUYS DONT RETURN VIDEOS!!!

Don’t be surprised if you never get another purchase from me again penguin magic! Holy frick!!

Half of what I expected and overpriced Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 23rd, 2019
When I saw the trailer for this, I was thrilled, I couldn’t wait to purchase and learn this. Then I did purchase and learn this... and I can honestly say I am dissapointed

First let me make a pros and cons list

Pros -
- some solid routines that will work for some people, but not me, they’re too simple for my liking, so I guess this is more of a con

Cons -
Tutorials are difficult to follow and carry on too long, I had to skip huge chunks of him just going on and on and on about things I don’t need to know.

You spend more money getting the materials necessary for these effects than the actual fricken video. You have to by stock cards, you NEED buisness cards with white backs, multiple newspapers, envelopes, magazines, charms, paper bags, special pens even! It’s ridiculous!

Half the techniques he claimed to be “hidden gems” of Mentalism I have seen literally everywhere or even thought up on my own



If there’s any way to return purchases on penguin magic, please comment below how I can do so. This is by a landslide the most regretful pirchase I’ve ever made on penguin!

I am SO SORRY Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 23rd, 2019
I was the guy who wrote that distasteful two and one star review, I was guess I was mad because I had not thought out just how powerful these effects truest were. If fact, they are amazing if your willing to spend a few extra bucks on other materials and I will certainly use many of these in future performances

Well worth the price Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 21st, 2019
Richard Osterlind is the Columbo of modern mentalism. His style is both unassuming and potent at the same time. He relaxes his audience by manifesting an oh-shucks-geez-I'm-not-sure-what's-going-on aura but then hits them between the eyes with devastating and mind bending outcomes. I've yet to see something RO has put out that isn't top-of-the-line, including this edition. For this presentation what I especially enjoyed was watching Richard's enthusiasm and reverence for rendering and updating classic material from a previous generation of mentalism. Kudos and thanks Richard!
