The Erasmus Book Test Series: The Voynich Manuscripts

by Angelo Stagnaro

The “Voynich Manuscripts” represents the third volume in Angelo Stagnaro’s Kismet Book Test series. There are six titles in the series.

The Kismet Books are distinct from other book tests in that they are designed to be self-working cold reading aids. “Voynich Manuscripts” is a multiple-use mentalism tool that will allow the performer to conduct several mentalism experiments during a single 45-minute performance using only this book. Mentalism effects possible with this book include: 1) reading a spectator’s mind, 2) cold read the spectator, 3) offer experiments in extrasensory perception (ESP), 4) offer experiments in telepathy, 5) offer experiments in precognition.

The Voynich Manuscripts is unique in the Kismet Book Test Series in that in addition to the same type of effects found in the rest of the series, this book also offers several dozens of mentalism experiments spread throughout the book.

In addition, a gimmicked tarot deck (sold separately) has been developed to be used with this book test. The book is also designed in such a way as to make fuller use of the Phenomena Deck (mentioned above.)
