We all recognize Derren Brown as one of the finest mentalists of our age. His critically acclaimed writings, television shows, and theatrical productions have made him a respected household name all over the world. Everyone knows that.
What fewer people know is that years before his fame, Derren earned his living as a close-up magician specializing in card magic. He released The Devil’s Picturebook in 1999, a stunning collection of card material years ahead of its time. The card magic he performs and teaches offer a rare glimpse into how Derren thinks about his magic, and how he constructs routines. Then, as now, the audience’s emotions are always Derren’s primary focus.
Vanishing Inc. Magic is proud to bring you The Devil’s Picturebook for the first time as a digitally remastered download. Over the course of three hours, you’ll be given a detailed, rare insight into this rare Derren Brown material. The first half focuses on Derren’s “traditional”card work; featuring his Card Under Box, Oil and Water and the famous Smoke routine. The second features his incredible, pioneering psychological card material.

- Oil and Water: Derren’s terrific version of this classic.

- Smoke: Perhaps Derren’s signature close-up piece, this is a thought-of card to cigarette.
- Out of this World: Derren’s wonderful additions to the classic routine.
- Double Think: Two thought-of cards are discerned. The method is groundbreaking.
- Extreme Mental Effort: This effect will absolutely fool you.
