Paul Voodini presents Victorian Seance & the Birth of Mentalism, a 17,000-word, 60-page PDF. It recounts the rise of spiritualism in the 1800s, the antics, tricks, and techniques of the fraudulent mediums. It also explores how this led directly to the birth of that branch of the magical arts known as ‘mentalism.’
This detailed manuscript outlines and explains such techniques and methods as mesmerism and hypnosis, table-tipping, slates, automatic writing, book tests, ‘reading’ techniques and Q&A, spirit manifestations, the Ouija board, and much, much more! The text also touches on escapology, quick change, and other magical techniques.
Paul also recounts some of the most famous mediums of the Victorian era, including the Fox Sisters, the Davenport Brothers, and Anna Eva Fay, the first Honorary Lady Associate of the Magic Circle!
Written exclusively with mentalists and magicians in mind, this manuscript is embellished throughout with period photographs and illustrations and is written in Paul’s usual joyful and playful manner! This is Paul Voodini’s first in-depth work since 2015, and represents decades of research.
If you’re seeking to learn more about this era and its connection to mentalism, this eBook is for you!
