The ESP Origins deck is based on the ESP cards designed by Karl Zener and made popular by Joseph Banks in the early 20th century. Your spectators will have no doubts about their authenticity. The back was designed by Sam Hayles, a world renowned graphic artist who specialises in playing card designs. The marking on the backs of the cards is efficient and effective. You can read it easily, but your spectators will not even suspect the cards are marked, much less be able to see the marks. In addition to the ESP cards, the deck includes all of the cards needed to perform the 10 routines described in the booklet, along with several bonus cards that you can put to use in your own mentalism routines.
