|-||====== Card Divination by Spectator, Using Fake Index in Reverse Fan ======|
|-||Michael Shields and Bascom Jones published "Mephisto's Monocle" in //[[http://askalexander.org/display/36705/Genii/18|Genii]]//, Vol. 14 No. 8, Apr. 1950, p. 266. They would draw a card index on the blank corners of a Joker, then force the real card matching the drawn index. When the deck was reverse fanned in front of a spectator, the only index visible was the drawn one (the card on the face of the fan was covered with the hand).|
|-||Al Mann reinvented the idea in 1976. In his version, the advantage of possible impromptu preparation is sacrificed to get a realistic pip. See "The Isometric Card" in //[[http://askalexander.org/display/22355/The+Third+Ecstasy/24|The Third Ecstasy]]//, 1976, p. 22. In certain circumstances, this could be a desirable feature.|
