From the creative mind of Vince Wilson, Gemini Artifacts is proud to bring you The Poe Brainwave Deck. The beautiful set of eight cards full of all original artwork is sure to bring your spectators to the world of Edgar Allan Poe.
I have always been fascinated by Edgar Allan Poe since I lived in my hometown of Baltimore, MD. My previous Baltimore, I still sometimes miss thee. The Baseball (such as it is), the food (steamed crabs!) and Poe. We have Poe’s body after all. Sorry Richmond, Boston and New York – he’s ours. He died in 1849, alone under very mysterious circumstances on a street in what is now Baltimore’s Little Italy. He is one of America’s greatest writers and we all have a favorite Poe poem or story. I often wonder though, did Poe himself have a favorite? If so, which one? Of course most people hope that is the story they like best when they think of it.
Performed as in the classic brainwave effect, the spectator guesses which one of eight stories was Poe’s personal favourite, and of course the spec guesses correctly.
