The base idea goes back to J. Caroll who was awarded First Prize in card magic at the FISM convention 1988 in Den Haag. The French magician Gruner added some modification and then released the effect thru Mephisto-Huis in Belgium with permission. A spectator chooses a card and marks it on it’s face. the card is then returned to the deck and the spectator is allowed to shuffle the deck. In the meantime you take a small notepad from your pocket. The spectator is instructed to follow the instructions in the note pad. 1) Shuffle the deck! 2) cut the deck 3) make three piles of cards 4) without looking take one card from each pile 5) Select one of the three cards 6) Look at it At this point the spectator will look at the card and realize that it is not the one he had selected. But there is one more instruction….turn the page!…. to his surprise the spectator now finds his signed card bound into the spiral binding of the notepad. Your receive detailed instructions in English, French and Dutch together with a special load gimmick, a deck of cards and several cards to get you started. The load gimmick is designed to go in the inside pocket of a jacket. The card that is found bound into the notepad is the card that the spectator had signed, no switch. This is clever. In order to make additional trick cards you will need a comb binding system to prepare the cards. The gimmick is set up for right hand use.
