A card routine in Art of Astonishment, Vol 3 by Paul Harris (1996)


You remove a few cards from your wallet and place them under your card case. You then ask the spectator to name a meaningful word. Let's say it's rose. You use this word to help find her selected card. And the cards under the case? You slowly spread them, and large letters inked on the backs of the cards spell out a single word: ROSE.
