"The title originates from a secret phrase known only to Harry Houdini and his wife. Houdini, who had spent years of his life discrediting mediums, told his wife before dying that if she ever received the message “Rosabelle Believe” she would know that the message was from Houdini and that he was communicating from the dead, proving that the afterlife was real. After he died she (perhaps) received the message."--Printed Matter website, accessed 11/21/2023.
