Re: faro shuffle

I have a scan of the book.
I think these links refer to the shuffle in question, it's in the section on the game of faro. Which may be where the confusion comes from.

Re: ERDNASE

The back design appears to be an anamorphic illusion, of sorts, if the design is viewed end on, a series of squiggles is the dominant design. Viewed side on, at an acute angle, and the dominant design seen is a series of parallel lines. (I'm doing this on an iPhone and the illusion is pretty clear) ...
