Three amazing prediction effects with props you can make and give away!
Price: $15.00

In my ebook Paper Prophecies, I teach three prediction effects I've been having fun with, and I think other magi will get a kick out of them, too. Here's one of the reasons why: the pages in the back of the book are designed so you can print out and make the props to perform the effects!

These effects are:

Thaumatrope: A fascinating toy from the 19th century visibly transforms to reveal the face of a selected card.

7 Sins: A guest is offered a chance to indulge in one of the seven deadly sins, and it turns out that this opportunity may have been predestined.

Fortune8: A familiar fortunetelling method — a device known as a "cootie catcher" — provides a surprising glimpse into someone's future.

The ebook is in PDF format, viewable on any platform.

Your magical future can be found in Paper Prophecies!

"This publication is a total delight. The design is elegant. The methods are clever. The presentations are funny, charming, and even thoughtful. To any magician, I would exclaim: You want class? Witness this creation." — Robert Neale

"Paper Prophecies is an incredible bargain. I enjoyed making the props and have had great fun performing the effects. My favorite is Fortune8. The necessary force is undetectable, and it's wonderful to be able to give the fortunetelling device to the volunteer at the end. I hope this is the start of a series." — Richard Webster

"The material in Paper Prophecies is charming, memorable, and fun to do. The plots and props will intrigue your audience. If you decide to let your audience keep the props, they will have a token of their experience that they will cherish for a long time to come." — Arthur Trace, MAGIC Magazine

I got this from David at one of his lectures, and every piece is usable, commercial, and FUN! Making the props is fun, performing with them is fun, and the spectators get to enjoy the fun with the souvenirs after the show!

When I was a kid, I loved the old booklets where you could cut or punch out toys and figures from the pages, and with some light instructions create another world right before your eyes. Paper Prophecies takes that love of messing with arts and crafts and turns it into a magic book. There are three effects for only $15. (How often does that happen anymore...?) You get everything you need and you don't have to skimp on your performances for fear that you'll run out of the props or have to "order refills" from a place that may not exist in 10 years.

Don't be dismissive of the Thaumatrope, while "just a science trick" it will get stronger and more delighted reactions than you imagine. (Protip: if working private events, after the trick, write your first name on one side and your last name on the other side a little lower than the first name was written. When they make the magic happen with the card, your full name appears together. A perfect giveaway to a client. Extra protip, instead of your name write your client's name.)

And, while words like these get said a lot, I really do mean this, Fortune8 is worth the price of the downland, really it should cost more.

Truthfully... don't by this download. No. Just don't. I don't want any of you to do this effect, that way I can selfishly keep it all to myself.
