What made us create this?

We love the tossed-out deck, but for mentalism, it falls down in 2 major areas:


The original tossed-out deck can only be performed on a group of people. But we've designed 'To the Point' to allow you to perform 1 on 1 - as well as on any number of random people from your audience. With no pre-show.

This makes 'to the point' more versatile. You can perform it casually at home, 1 on 1 or use it in your next parlour or stage event.

And #2.

Playing cards wrapped in a rubber band just feels like a prop.

BUT mentalism thrives on normal objects. Phones. Notepads. Coins - and especially books.

Even if you use a normal deck, some of your audience will still associate playing cards with magic - which takes away from your presentation.

But a book is normal - and is believed to have no special ability whatsoever.

Throwing a book into your audience, especially one they think they've seen in the real world, or can find on Amazon - is natural. It avoids suspicion.

That means your demonstrations are heightened - and feel more real.

A less suspicious prop...

'To the Point' is designed to replicate the famous POINT IT books. These books are used all over the world as a picture dictionary for travellers. They don't have to learn the language - they just point at the image to ask for help. 

Google 'point book' and the real thing will come up. So even if your audience goes home and tries to backtrack the effect. They won't find anything.

We also include a completely ungimmicked book that you can bring into play and hand out for examination.

If you're a professional mentalist, you'll find that 'To the Point' fits perfectly into your existing repertoire - without any presentation tweaks.

If you're a beginner or want to dip your toe into mentalism, To the Point is a great place to start.

It can't fail - and because of the way it's gimmicked, your audience will have a seemingly fair choice - from any page in the entire book - and you'll nail it every single time

I am a repeat customer and everything I purchase I am beyond pleased with. If I have ever had an issue with anything I contact them and receive prompt responses and they always rectify an issue in more than a timely manner. Definitely a company in the magic world I’d recommend.

Super easy to do

To the point is.... shall I say? To the point. It was an interesting take on a type of tossed out deck using a traveling picture book. I have used it a couple of times already and I get decent reactions. The problem is I just need to perform it enough to get my flair behind it.

Really like it. The gimmick is not obvious and it‘s easy to understand for the magician.

Terence Pethybridge
Great in any situation

As a mentalism performer, I treasure easy to carry and use props, that allow me to leave spectators full of wonder.
Too many times we use prediction pads, peek devices and loaded card decks.
Book tests also in my view belong in parlor or stage routines.
To the point provides everything needed to provide many great mentalism moments time and time again. Polish your presentation and carry this little pocket prop for years to come.

Ellusionist producers

I love Ellusionist because the producers are unique and of the highest quality!

To the point was on point!

Performing to an internationally diverse group this is a great tool to up your game as a mentalist and a magician. You can have absolutely no fear that the method won't succeed or that it looks gimmick or faked. My interaction so far has been positive and I'm looking forward to incorporating it more in group settings.

This will be fun

Oh, the possibilities! Roving magic, one on one, small groups, large groups, stage… there is no excuse not to use To the Point. It’s easy to learn, multiple ways to perform and it’s fun. I love the price point, too. Looking forward to performing this at my next gig!
