- ft treatise on tfie use oj -you can use very small type, much smaller than usual. Be sure to experiment with this. As you'll see if you try this, the 'viewing area' that you can see through the ball is actually about half the size of the ball itself. So if you've got a 2 inch crystal ball, your actual viewing area will be slightly less than one inch, and even at that, the edges of the viewing area will be quite out of focus and hard to read. Only the very center of the direct opposite side...

Nfhe arguments for and against QriBs

There are those who would tell you that there is no effect that is worth doing, that isn't worth learning so thoroughly that you wouldn't know every facet of it inside and out, including lists of information. They are absolutely correct on many fronts.

In other words, memorized. This, of course, is...

Sise oj the ri6

There are three basic factors when it comes to the physical size of the crib. One, how much information is needed on the crib, two, where is the crib going to be located and how much room does that allow, and three, how good are your eyes. All three factors are directly connected and influence each other.
