CARTOMANCY (Luke Jermay)



The Blurb

Cartomancy is Jermay’s fiercely original solution to answering unwritten questions audience members simply think about.

“I just finished reading Cartomancy… it’s brilliant. The construction, the script, the thoughts hidden behind, the principles you’ve assembled… a lot of food for thought. Again: thank you!”
– Julien Losa

Armed with the cutting edge secrets contained in this book you will soon effortlessly answer unwritten questions in a staggering demonstration of fortune telling with playing cards. Your answers will astonish your audiences! You will appear to reveal specific jaw dropping details like names, dates, locations and so much more.

“Luke has given us a fabulous routine that any mentalist can make a full-time living with alone and potentially make thousands per show! Very well done!”
– Robert Marsi

All with no preshow work of any kind, no billets, no written questions, no complex mental systems, no difficult memory work, no secret assistants and no stooges of any kind.

“Get it! Cartomancy is soooo good! It’s a self contained 35 minute show with Q & A built in; where all you need on stage is a deck of cards. It is smartly written and everything you need is covered.”
– Stuart Palm

More than just a ‘trick’ Cartomancy is a full income generating professional show in three acts; complete with the exact word for word script Jermay uses night after night to astonish audiences worldwide.

The Cartomancy package comprises of 61 pages, (14,041 word) 9 x 6 professionally edited and typeset manuscript plus a 50 minute MP3 audio file in which Jermay focuses on how to give ‘open’ readings with playing cards. If you are a fan of Jermay and his approach to modern mentalism this is essential reading.

The MP3 file mentioned did not come with my copy of the book.  At the time of this writing, I’m not sure if that was an oversight or if the error is in the ad.  For now, consider that the ad blurb is inaccurate and that the MP3 file is not included.

You cannot use a regular deck for this.  You must put the deck together using specific other decks that most mentalists and magicians already have, but, if not, they are easily obtainable from your local magic dealer.

Parlour, Stage

This is a brilliant version of the classic Q&A act, but involving playing cards and a potpourri of principles woven together to make a solid Q&A act, many of these principles being longtime favorites of Luke Jermay. If this appeals to you, then this is an extraordinary routine by one of today’s modern masters and is highly recommended.
