What is Oraculum?
From the mind of B. Hasbun (creator of Codex V, and the 2014 Magic Cafe Trick of the Year award-winner: INFERNO), comes his most powerful creation to date: Oraculum.
"...A DARK MASTERPIECE." -Luca Volpe
Oraculum is a mysterious book of 366 date-of-birth profiles, riddled with spellbinding fortunes, dark forewarnings, and an unbreakable connection to the all-knowing Tarot. Its pages are graced by several charts, images, and illustrations- all hand drawn by an expert artist.
It is not a book test. Among its pages is encrypted a centuries-old secret that has yet to be deciphered. Its author and title are a mystery. Its age and provenance are vague. Some say it is fifty years old, others one hundred or more. Its secrets, however, are much older- ancient, perhaps.
With a page count of two-hundred, and an approximate size of six by nine inches, Oraculum's size and weight is substantial.
Of what is Oraculum capable?
- give a detailed reading based on your sitter/spectator's date of birth
- give a personalized tarot reading to each of your sitters/spectators without the need to carry a deck (or the need to know the Tarot and its meanings- Oraculum does it all for you)
- reveal your sitter/spectator's date of birth (down to the year, if you're so bold) without anything read aloud, any questions asked, anything written down, any peeks or glimpses, any pre-show work or confederates. Minimal, and in many cases zero, memory work is required. This can be accomplished with one of three, easy to perform, unique methods embedded into the pages of Oraculum, some more difficult than others but all of them worthwhile and well-justified. Oraculum is the strongest, most versatile date-of-birth divination tool of its kind
- multiple reveal options for date-of-birth divination available (through the Tarot, through the charts, and many more ways as explained in the manual)
- the book is fully examinable and can be read from cover to cover
- many non date-of-birth divination effects are possible. Perform a few of the most powerful Tarot card routines conceivable, using Oraculum as your guide and secret weapon
- so much more. The door has only been cracked...
What is the difference between Oraculum SE and Oraculum LE?
In terms of method and effect, Oraculum SE and Oraculum LE do not differ. It is in craftsmanship and aesthetics where they part ways. While Oraculum SE is made of the highest quality materials and is absolutely gorgeous (you really have to hold it to appreciate it), Oraculum LE is in a world of its own.
With its thick, antiqued leather (true leather, not bonded leather like most leather volumes), ribbed and rounded spine, and stunning hand-marbled endpages (not simulated, printed marbling), LE commands respect and intrigue before it is even opened. LE is perfect for the distinguished performer, the avid collector, and the lover of books.
Oraculum SE is limited to one hundred fifty copies and Oraculum LE to twenty two (one for each card of the Major Arcana). Both come with their own unique certificates of authenticity and will never be reprinted.
Aside from the wonderful performance possibilities the charts have to offer, there is an easter egg hidden in one of the them. The first to unlock it and email us with the correct solution will receive a 1 of 1 special edition of Oraculum. The solution will then be forwarded to all owners.
All orders will ship early February on a first-come, first-serve basis.
