"I have always wanted to present a close-up version of Cardiographic, but have been unable to create my dream pad until recent advances in material technology made it possible.
My criteria was simple, I wanted a pad that would comfortably fit in my pocket. That could be done surrounded under the closest scrutiny. It had to be self contained and needed a fast reset for strolling, and most important of all it had to to look impossible." MARTIN LEWIS
With Close-up Cardiographic Martin has taken his classic sketchpad rising card to the next level. The effect is the same as Cardiographic but built for Close-up performances; a drawing of a selected card rises from a drawing of a deck of cards, the resulting impossible object is handed out as a souvenir.
• The brand new Super-Clean method is self contained and angle-proof.
• The audience sees you draw on the pad prior to the card rising.
• Fast reset for restaurant or strolling.
• Includes 50 giveaway pages.
• Made in America and built to last.

Unlike the stage version, which you do for your STAGE show, this version is in your pocket all the time. And you will use it often! Even close up, this illusion is perfect and brings that familiar Cardiographic "gasp!" I actually had one person take the card and frame it!
Buy refills when you order! you will need them because you will do it a lot!!

Iv'e been using Maritn's Cardio Graphic for over 20 years in our big show and NOW I get the same, mind blowing reactions with this pocket version in my close-up show and the best part... VERY minimal set-up! This is a full 8 minute routine in my pocket.

This is a very practical and ingenious adaptation of Cardiographic for strolling. The reset is really no big deal. just a quick and easy thing you need to do. What a great investment! Oh, and when it comes to fast shipping and customer service and advice, Susanne and Martin are the best! Thank you giving me another worker for my quiver of tricks.

I love this. There are some shortcomings and it is not for every table when you are hopping. But it just looks so cool when it rises. I do not draw anything additional as I do not want to take the time to erase between performances and just use a story that I made a prediction last night and drew it then... or I had a dream and when I awoke I made a quick drawing of what I saw. Just my style and it works for me. I did have a little problem with the card not always rising but that seems to have loosened up and now it is working great. You can show all five fingers but of course in some grips one is holding it from the back. Just depends how you want to hold the pad. Great job Martin. I will probably purchase a second card version when available.
