The Six-Hour Memorized Deck

In The Six-Hour Memorized Deck Martin Joyal shows step by step how you can memorize the Joyal Stack in six hours or less! At the end of that time most readers will be able to name the card that lies at any position in the deck, and the position of any card requested! The Joyal system of memorization is simple, innovative and requires no mnemonic lists or mental calculation.

It's as if you had been given a brain implant. But this isn't science-fiction. The procedure is real and it works! In addition to this revolutionary memorization system, you will learn a number of astonishing tricks using the stacks and will be led through an in-depth study of deck stacks and the magic they can produce. The Six-Hour Memorized Deck quickly puts in your grasp new vistas of card magic that most magicians and mentalists only dream of possessing! Read the book and get ready to use your New Brain!

Pour en savoir plus...
You have probably read about the miracles that can be done with a memorized deck, or seen top-flight professionnals stunning audiences with this extraordinary tool. You may have looked at the complicated systems required and sighed, "Not for me. Maybe one day..."

Well That Day Has Come!

Long out-of-print, The Six-Hour Memorized Deck is now available as an e-book.

Hermetic Press went into a meticulous process to transform the original work into a PDF format and make the best of this format.

Minor and major refinements were brought in, illustrations and tables were enhanced with color, the page layout was completely redone, and two chapters were added to help you practicing what you have learn (one in which the rules are based on the CHaSeD order, and the other one on the SHoCkeD order).

You can now enjoy the history behind the evolution of stacks, card systems and memorized decks and learn the Joyal Stack with a revolutionary memorization method.

A few words from Martin Joyal

I have been selling used magic books since 1994. During these 27 years, I was in contact with great customers, some of which with whom I had warm communications. It has always been a pleasure to supply books to those looking for them.

It’s now time for me to move to something else.

Not long ago, I started working on a new project which requires time and space. I am gradually making this transition by going through my inventory and making huge sales from time to time. Who knows, you might find hidden gems!

I thank you all for your patronage and I wish you the best.
