A haiku is a form of codified poetry that appeared in Japan during the second half of the seventeenth century. It consists of a very short text, usually three lines, describing an image, a landscape, an emotion, a feeling...

Mentalism effect
French magician Vincent Hedan had created a wonderfull mentalism effect using a notebook of haiku. A spectator chooses freely a haiku, and the magician is able to draw instantaneously what it represents.

To say it simple, it is a very effective book-test effect. But in fact it is a lot more than that. It creates a moment of pure emotion, a moment of refinement and of elegance...

"Vincent Hedan's Haiku is a clever combination of poetry and mental magic beautifully wrapped to create a strong effect with emotion. Everything I like!" - Boris Wild

"Vincent Hedan's Haiku book test is novel, beautifully produced and its method rests on a smart combination of subtle ideas." - Stephen Minch

ok. if you're a mentalist or a magician that incorporates mentalism in you repetoire then this should be a have. the method: so easy and smooth. it works off something people do anyways. beware though. as you know from performing in the real world there are a few a**holes that'll do anything to throw you regardless if they're trying to or not.certain mentalsit effects require a certain something that i'm not willing to do(stooge, gimmicks, devices, peek, basically, shady stuff), this doesn't. all you man.
ayo, this is an elegant piece. it comes with a booklet small enough to fit in your pocket allowing you to also carry your other props. the booklet is as beautifully designed as ghost cards. everywhere else ive searched sells this effect for 45 or 50 dollars. penguin; 33!! this is practical magic here ya'll go with this one. ive done this already(1st day, no lie) for 6people and everyone one of them was blown away. word.

Old and bad quality Report this review

The trick uses a very old principle.
Also the "booklet" you get is cheaply produced and does not fit well with the story of ancient japanese poems.

The instructions are not good, also too few.

Excellent addition to the pocket arsenal Report this review

Vincent Hedan raises the bar with both his card work and his mentalism. He uses tried & true methods and expands on them to deliver quality presentations & effects. Haiku is a beautiful little piece of mentalism from packaging to presentation and is money well spent. The instructions a very clear and concise and the over all effect of a drawing a spectators thought changes the normal pace of a standard "book test" wonderfully. As a working mentalist. I highly recommend Haiku and anything else that Vincent has to offer.
