Al Mann – Double Incidence
From AL MANN AND RICHARD OSTERLIND, 2 OF THE MOST BRILLIANT MINDS IN MENTAL MAGIC COMES THIS MANUSCRIPT FROM THE AME MAJOR ARCANA SERIES: “DOUBLE INCIDENCE, THE POWER OF THE ALL-SEEING EYE”. BOTH AL MANN AND RICHARD OSTERLIND contribute to this manuscript and the result is ONE OF THE BEST AND MOST EFFECTIVE MANUSCRIPTS THAT AL MANN EVER PRODUCED! The late JOSEPH DUNNINGER is credited with having employed a little-known optical principle for the reading of sealed messages! As a message rested on a table, its secretly written messages remained totaly invisible to the spectators BUT in full sight to the Mentalist who was standing by the table at the exact same distance as the spectators! Special optical materials were used which were not readily available to the average performer. In DOUBLE INCIDENCE, TWO METHODS ARE GIVEN THAT WILL DUPLICATE THE EFFECT!
- “DI-1” – RICHARD OSTERLIND GIVES HIS FABULOUS METHOD WHEREBY TRANSPARENT ENVELOPES ARE USED. THESE ENVELOPES ARE TRANSPARENT ONLY TO THE MENTALIST WHILE TOTALLY OPAQUE TO THE ONLOOKER!
- “D1-2” – AL MANN GIVES YOU A METHOD BY WHICH A MESSAGE WRITTEN ON AN OPAQUE CARD AND FOLDED TWICE, IS MADE TO TURN ITSELF INSIDE OUT, UNKNOWN TO THE SPECTATORS AND IN FRONT OF THEIR EYES SO THAT THE SECRET MESSAGE IS THEN ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE FOLDED CARD, BUT AGAIN, THE MESSAGE IS ONLY VISABLE TO THE MENTALIST WHILE IT REMAINS TOTALLY OCCULTED TO THE ONLOOKERS!
