New from Enrique Enriquez ...
a grimoire of language
To many in
the mentalism community, Enrique Enriquez needs no introduction. He is,
without a doubt, one of a handful of people who have brought the art of
readings into the 21st century. With his landmark Invisible trilogy
Invisible Gemstone, The Invisible
Tarot, and Invisible
Readings, available here),
Enrique showed many of us how to leave behind the props and stock cold
reading lines that had been used by magicians, mentalists and readers
for decades, if not centuries.
Many of us who embraced Enrique's refreshing new philosophy and systems
-- and actually put them into practice -- found that our presentations
and readings became something uncannily close to the real thing. To say
that we were eager for Enrique's next book to come out would be an
understatement, at the very least.
The good news is that the wait is over.
fortunate to see this book in its original form several years ago when
Enrique sent it out as a series of five lessons to a small private
group. Each lesson was full
of references to obscure alchemists, cabalists, poets and Surrealist
artists, many of
which were unfamiliar to me. As I read the first four lessons, I
wondered what, if anything, the material in them had to do with
mentalism or readings.
Knowing that Enrique's background was as an
artist, I understood why he would be interested
in the arcane roots of
wordplay, but I couldn't see how it could possibly relate to me as a
psychic entertainer. It seemed as if Enrique was more interested in
an academic overview of little-known artists and occultists than
developing any kind of system that
I could use in my performances or readings practice.
It wasn't until the fifth
and final lesson that the light went on for me, and I thought,
"Brilliant... this is the logical next step after you've mastered the
ideas in the Invisible series."
Naturally, I was eager to publish it, but Enrique told me that he
didn't think it would be of interest to many people beyond the private
group he had shared it with. Upon reflection, I thought that perhaps he
was right, especially since the lessons didn't resemble his Invisible
series or the vast majority of books that are published for the psychic
Several years went by, and then, on a whim, I asked Enrique if he had
reconsidered the idea of publishing the original five lessons. To my
surprise, he said "Yes", and we began the process of making wordcraft available.
intended to be part of the Invisible series, wordcraft will
certainly be seen by some as a natural extension of the revolutionary
approach to readings found in those books. In short, the concept that
underscores this e-book can be used to achieve results that can only be
described as the closest you can get to pure mentalism.
represents another chapter in Enrique's journey as an artist who became
mentalism, and how he has combined the creative worlds of art,
readings. Enrique is
intrigued with wordplay and the potential it holds as a tool in the
reading process, and using his
approach, language itself becomes the oracle. In wordcraft, Enrique
shares how he finds hidden messages in words, an approach that allows
him to bring a new dimension to his interactions with people.
the tools of your trade – palmistry, astrology, or tarot cards – the
true medium of all readings is language. This discreet manual hopes to
add a further layer to your readings by focusing on the words we use
and the poetic sparks they ignite.
Language is both a symbolic world and a model for the world of signs
around us. Following the flow of words, we acquire a malleable mind
which can in turn be applied to refine or reinforce any style of
readings, or used as a system in its own right."
Enrique, the sometimes-whimsical practice of wordplay is inherently
magical, and it can lead us to places we might never have imagined. Like
the preceding books in the Invisible series, wordcraft focuses on
potential for the sometimes-astounding results that can occur when we
surrender to serendipity, and embrace the spirit of improvisation. This book
challenges the notion that playfulness has no place in the serious
business of readings, or that the serious business of readings
necessarily demands serious methods or

simple idea that allows us to access the metaphysical world through the
of everyday words and phrases. Starting with an arcane concept known as
"The Language of the
Birds" used by alchemists and Surrealist artists, Enrique
explains the strategies he uses to uncover the hidden meanings in
One strategy allows us to look at any letter, number or symbol from any
language and develop a
narrative that describes a person's private and public lives. Knowing how
to do this can add another
level to any reading, regardless of what oracle is being used. Another
strategy is the core idea behind "The
Language of the Birds" in which,
as Enrique writes, "Every single word is a Trojan horse" that contains
hidden content that can take the narrative in surprising and unexpected
directions. The idea of
employing anagrams is also explored as a way to extend a reading, a
powerful technique that could, as he suggests, be used to write a short
from a single word.
examines a method to find within a name -- or even a single letter --
information about a person's past, present, and future as well as their
and public life, and provides several examples. Using this simple
strategy, Enrique outlines an approach that could be used as a
important thing to understand about this book is that Enrique doesn't
teach you his
system, but rather explains the strategies he's used to
create it, and includes
exercises that will allow you to create your own system, which will be
far easier to learn and use than something you need to memorize or
learn by rote.
tried to stress, this e-book is not a "how-to" book as much as it is a
look at Enrique's continuing development as an artist. With this in
mind, we've included an extensive
interview conducted by Tarot scholar Paul Nagy in which he and Enrique
discuss how Enrique's work with the Tarot inspired his approach to
wordplay. In addition, you'll find a gallery of pages from Enrique's
personal notebooks containing examples of his own wordplay and sketches
inspired by "The
Language of the Birds".

Incidentally, Enrique was quite specific when he told me that I was not
to market this book as a "how-to" book, and that he didn't consider the
concepts he describes as being any kind of reading system.
