A classic of mentalism comes to life!
Annemann's Practical Mental Effects has been a landmark book for magicians and mentalists since its release in 1944. The routines that are contained in its pages have been influencing mystery performers for over 75 years.
This exciting new DVD series explores the work of Annemann and his Jinx contributors in a scholarly way, analyzing not only the presentation of some of the strongest mentalism ever created but also the thinking behind the effects. Richard Osterlind first performs the effects in their original form before an audience of non-magicians and then very nuance is exhaustively explained with the assistance of Jim Sisti.
Effect performed and explained in this volume include:
Mindreading Publicity Effect
The Brain Wave Deck
Half and Half
Two Papers and a Spectator
The Al Baker 3 Billet Trick
Running Time Approximately: 1hr 28min
