Peek Deck is a type of Mechanical Deck as well as the name of a specific deck from Dr. Franklin V. Taylor marketed in the early 1940s.[1]

With this deck, a magician can instantly know the card when a spectator merely peeks at it from the pack.

It was first published in The Phoenix magazine in 1942 and later in Bruce Elliott's book Magic as a Hobby (1948).
