-====== Brainwave Deck ====== 
-Dai Vernon’s “Brain Wave Deck” was originally published in //The Jinx//, No. 19 (October 1938). In Vernon’s original effect (created in 1930), a named card was shown reversed in the deck. Vernon credited Paul Fox with the idea of the odd-backed revelation. ​ 
-Karl Fulves //A History of the Brainwave Principle// (1983) offers a fascinating detailed look at how this effect evolved.
