Open Prediction Project by Thomas Baxter
In 1949, the magician Paul Curry proposed an effect using playing cards that seemed impossible. Despite the best efforts of the brightest minds of the time, the effect became known as "Curry's Unsolved Card Problem".
For nearly 60 years, mentalists and magicians racked their brains to find the perfect solution to Curry's challenge, now known as The Open Prediction.
The Open Prediction Project is the largest collection of its kind in existence. It is a compilation of 51 unique and creative solutions to the open prediction problem.
artists like Marc Paul, Michael Weber, Barrie Richardson, Patrick Redford, Mick Ayres and Hector Chadwick have provided their solutions for this 296-page hardcover book, and these are just a few in a long list of creative and innovative contributors from around the world.
In addition, The Open Prediction Project includes a detailed history of the development of the Open Prediction effect, commentary on the people who made this effect the legend it has become, and a comprehensive appendix listing variations on Open Prediction that have been published in the past.
