-A precursor to an actual solid deck can be seen in a [[cards:deck_shell|Deck Shell]] (first recordings date back to ca. 1700)which is a hollow block. +Blocks of cards secretly glued together for methodological purpose are described by Carl Willmann in //[[https://​askalexander.org/​display/​10632/​Die+Zauberwelt/​167|Die Zauberwelt]]//Vol4 No11, Nov1898, p. 166, in an effect called "Die Anziehungskraft der Erde" by Martignoni. In that effect, ​the cards of each half of the deck are glued together, making two fused blocks ​of cards. A selection is replaced between ​these blocks (after ​they have been switched ​in for a normal deck). When held loosely, the selection drops out when the deck is held upright. ​(Willmann describes another option to make the blocks: They can be sewn together in such a way that the blocks can still be slightly spread and riffled.)
