PRISM: The Color Series of Mentalism by MAX MAVEN (Hardcover)
The most influential mentalism book of the last 50 years, PRISM contains polished routines guaranteed to amaze audiences.
"This is a must have and read, and you should read it twice.. at least! I’ve done so myself. What a treat to get Max Maven’s entire collection of his 'The Color Series of Mentalism' between two book covers. Only his 'Desire' and his 'Four-Sided Triangle' are worth so much more than you pay for the entire book. And there are so many other gems in it. Get it! " - Jan Forster
"Max Maven is one of the most respected and prolific creators in mentalism. PRISM is one of his most important and respected works. Read it, absorb it, and study anything Max writes. It will make you a better mentalist." - Uri Geller
"Max Maven’s PRISM is more than just a colorful collection of modern mentalism by one of the art’s greatest thinkers and performers; it is a lens through which one may glimpse the secrets to constructing powerful, meaningful mysteries. Read the opening effect “Desire,” and you will be changed forever. And then—once you’ve basked in its brilliance—you’ll suddenly realize there are over 200 pages of illumination to go." - Jared Kopf
Writing under the name of Phil Goldstein, MAVEN has created one of the largest, cleverest and most influential bodies of work in the field, stretching from the latter part of the twentieth century into the twenty-first. His star rose early, with the publication of five slim collections, each packed with innovative and performance-caliber mentalism. These booklets, which have become widely known as "The Color Series," contained items such as "Desire", "The Spirit is Willing (to Write)" and "Four-sided Triangle"items that have become modern classics in the field.
MAVEN produced the Color booklets in small quantities and, despite ongoing popular request, refused to reprint them. They have become highly sought after, fetching prices in the hundreds of dollars. At last, after a quarter of a century, the entire Color Series is again available; all 53 effects, newly illustrated by Ton Onosaka, 240 pages in hardcover. Welcome to a classic reborn Prism.
