"Dee's envelope will have your mind overflowing with ideas. They can be used for predictions, telepathy demonstrations, and even psychometry. Those are the things I have played around with but you can do much much more. This is a tool limited only by your imagination! I don't leave home without mine. Get yours while you can." Lance Sinclair
"This is the best envelope I've ever used. SO GOOD! Put me down for a million of them!" Lewis Lé Val
George Orwell believed information would be at risk and cameras would rule out everyday life.
With Dee Christopher's "1984" no information is safe.
Just like the cameras that Orwell spoke of, this diabolical tool is hidden in plain sight and yet. They'll never realise it's there.
You hand a black envelope to your spectator; you ask them to hold it up to the light, checking that it's completely opaque.
they open the envelope, reach inside and pull out a card. There is nothing else in the envelope.
They are to write or draw ANYTHING on the card, as large or small as they like. It's placed back inside the very same, examined envelope. The envelope is placed between their hands and you INSTANTLY know what they have written or drawn.
Think of "1984" as a window envelope, but without the window.
It looks completely normal in every way and can be handled freely by your spectator, but at any point, you can activate the secret gimmick; revealing the secret information.
There's nothing mechanical, nothing added or taken away and no moves.
No impression devices, or extra gimmicks. Everything is self contained.
This isn't simply an "edited" store bought envelope; this envelope has been designed from the ground up by Dee Christopher and realised, machine cut and hand crafted by Jamie Daws on high quality black card stock. It will last performance after performance.
As well as the 1984 envelope, we've also included a matching regular envelope, switching the envelope is NOT necessary, but we've included this for completeness.
