The book ‘Depicting Thoughts’ describes the basic philosophy that led to the development of the PLF Picture cards, together with technical and presentational tips to enhance their convincing presentation during your mental performances.
ParaLabs discusses the systematic basis of the stack, and they also describe the order of the images separately and provide the mnemonic devices and support for making associations to help you remember the sequence easily. The pictures and their relative locations in the stack are also incorporated in the examples to further help with memorization. This of course means that some very nice effects can be shown quite quickly from the multitude of miracles facilitated by the stack.
Despite being as comprehensive a range of effects as possible, the main aim is to encourage the performer to be creative when using the cards and to develop their own routines. Please do not think of the Picturecard Stack a ‘stunt’ or of the book as a ‘manual’. Rather, see the two decks and their accessories as tools, with the book providing support for the creative work with your own further ideas and material.
