As I have stated in our magazine ads, our intent in marketing "Deep Astonishment" is to offer an effect that will afford "everyone in the magic community" the opportunity to experience both the pure joy of performing "Deep Astonishment" and the feeling of elation gained from their audiences' reactions. To achieve our goal we have developed an effect and written instructions which we believe will allow anyone to master "Deep Astonishment" with a resonable amount of practice. We have also spent months developing props which perfectly blend the essential "Deep Astonishment" elements of ease of performance, natural appearance, audience impact, and affordability. These props are being used by some of the finest proffesional magicians in the US with unparalleled success.
The wallet we have provided is specially made for us to perform its required "Deep Astonishment" functions while appearing to be a coupon book, checkbook holder, daytimer wallet, or any other similar innocent appearing pocket wallet. It has proven totally reliable in hundreds of performances by avariety of professional and amatuer magicians. We do recognize that some "Deep Astonishment" performers are showing interest in a "higher quality", leather wallet. We have heard you and are currently designing a "Deep Astonishment Gourmet Wallet" to meet your needs. We would greatly appreciate any suggestions from "Deep Astonishment" performers on features and functions that thhey would like to see incorporated into this leather "Gourmet Wallet"
The special shim card is another very functional "Deep Astonishment" prop which has never been challenged in hundreds of performances. A "professionally manufactued" shim card's cost(up to $20.00 each) is not justified considering our initial goal and the success of the shim card supplied with "Deep Astonishment".
We hope that we have answered some of your questions and look forward to many more discussions fostered by "Deep Astonishment". Our eyes and ears are open at www.deepastonioshment.com.
