THE HIT SENSATION FROM BLACKPOOL MAGIC CONVENTION 2014!!
This simple but extremely effective apparatus consists of a thick leather strap and Brass buckle. The strap, which can be thoroughly examined, is first placed around the spectators wrist to prove that this is sturdy, secure and impossible to escape from. The spectator finds it impossible to Escape !
The spectator now places the strap around your wrist - and instantly you are FREE !
Many amusing effects are possible. 2 spectators assist you by holding a small sack / bag or pillow-case between them. After your wrists have been secured, you place your hands into the bag / sack. Instantly you take out one of your hands and push the spectator, asking him to stand a little further back. This is then repeated with the other hand and the other spectator. Yet when you place your hands back into the bag / sack you instantly lift them out to show that they are still Strapped Together Securely as before !
With Great Comedy Routine By EDDIE BURKE

From Richard Osterlind:
"Carnival of Secrets is becoming one of my favorite books on mentalism! This book has everything! There are wonderful Neal Scryer effects that are classic mentalism, based on classic ideas and with classic presentations that are straight forward and powerful. If all this book did was show how the simplest of principles can be turned into miracles, that would be enough. But that's only the beginning. Even if you don't do readings, learning the techniques this tome teaches can add infinite riches to your work. These methods are the best of the best and will take you to a new dimension that is what true mentalism is all about. And then the essays! Michael Weber, Max Maven, Richard Webster, Mark Garetz, Loyd Auerbach and W.Barclay! Your head will be spinning by the time you reach the end and you will turn around and start reading it again - just like I did! This is our art in its highest form. If you are serious about mentalism, you will get this."
- Richard Osterlind - March, 2013

His friends and collaborators are legion and proof enough of the high regard with which he is held - and that proof continues to be published.

Foreword by Marc Salem and Afterward by Bob Cassidy. This book is dedicated to one of the great unsung hero's of our art Jerome Finley!

Designed by Johnny Wham and produced by Collectable Playing Cards, this deck is clean and easy to use for play or for a collection.
