(Benny) Ben Harris

Ben Harris has been inventing magic tricks since the late 1970's.

His most famous invention, Cosmosis: The Original Floating Match (1986) is one of magic's most popular effects. It is also one of the most ripped-off tricks in modern history as any search on the internet will prove. As the author of dozens of books, manuscripts and lecture notes on the art (as well as 40 plus individual tricks), Harris has toured, lectured and performed in over 30 countries. He has created magic for the world's leading magicians and for the Disney Company. He is currently preparing his new book The Lost Art Of Metal Bending for the magic market, a novel (trilogy: Occam's Phaser, The Pickled Man, Half Past Then) and a screenplay. He is also directing the BackStory Project.

Ben regularly completes artwork for the Paul Harris Presents, and Real Secrets teams. He has designed hundreds of DVD packs and trick sets for the world's leading magic distributor: Murphy's Magic Supplies. With over 30 years experience in publishing for the magic industry, projects have included work for Max Maven, Paul Harris, Jay Sankey, David Harkey, Daryl, Joshua Jay, Joel Givens, Steve Shufton, David Blaine, Richard Sanders and too many more to name.

Alida: Little Winged One

Alida: Little Winged One by (Benny) Ben Harris
"A cool and animated levitation of a card or dollar bill... EASY TO MAKE!"
My goodness, this little effect created a shit-storm when it was released in 2000! I don't think the attacks had been so brutal since Cosmosis (in the mid 1980s). Anyway, this simple and effective idea was loved by some (see, for example, Richard Kaufman in Genii Magazine), and hated by others (see, for example, Michael Close in Magic Magazine). Ben relishes dividing opinion, and Alida certainly did that.

However, it was also a genuine stepping stone in the thought processes that would eventually lead to Enlightenment: The Ultimate Floating Card - which is way superior. So, controversial...

This and That

This and That by (Benny) Ben HarrisThe best-seller from 1986 is back.

You predict in advance which card will be named! Easy and fun.

This and That was a big seller back in the mid 1980's when the "Oscar" and "Phil" craze were at their peaks.

A spectator names any card (free choice) and you display that your deck has marked backs. They are all marked like "THIS" you say as you display cards in the deck as having the word "THIS" written on it's back. That's every card, but one. The selected card, on the other hand, has the word "THAT" written on it's back. Proving you know "this from that!"

Super easy to make at home...

5th Corner

5th Corner by (Benny) Ben HarrisA flash back to 1987 and a "long lost" manuscript, seen by only ten: Jerry Andrus, David Britland, Jeff Busby, Dave Faulkner, David Harkey, Ed Marlo, Dan McArthy, Harvey Rosenthal, Jay Sankey and Mark Trudinger, made it's brief, and only appearance... then, it was gone!

So what is the 5th Corner? It's a splash of ideas and techniques with a single playing card and it's ripped corners. You are both "one ahead" and "two behind" at the SAME TIME. This charming but annoying attribute is what probably led to the stony silence heard by the author in 1987. Can YOU make head-way with this strange and bizarre single-card oddity? Why...

TacTics

TacTics by (Benny) Ben Harris2002 and a small lecture tour. Harris needed an oddity that would contrast his card work. Some visual and aural distraction. TacTics was the answer. 150 units were assembled, fingers burned, and instructions written. The item was quite popular and did end up in an issue of Genii. Here is the original manuscript, re-edited and with clear photos. Ideas with color-changes, sound-based illusion and the "Milk Pitcher" application allowing you to vanish tictacs, half a container at a time, till they're ALL GONE!

This type of ring has three bands, linked together. You need to purchase one of them. It is suggested you start with the cheapest unit you can find, and then once familiar with the handling, you can purchase a heavier set in silver or gold.

In effect, you display two silver rings. These are held at the fingertips, and then with...

Superflip and S.F.U.C. by (Benny) Ben HarrisImagine: You’ve just performed several stages in your “Ambitious Card” routine. For one final time you place the “magic card” in the middle of the deck. The deck is placed face-down in the middle of the table. You show your hands empty. With a snap of your fingers you gesture toward the deck. Now, by simply riffling upward gently on the tabled deck’s edges—and dribbling the cards back to the table—the signed selection instantly and visibly appears face-up, atop the deck!

You accept your well earned applause and feel cool that you’ve done this by mastering a simple and clever...

The remarkable effect shifts "the moment" in Paul Harris' amazing Vanishing Deck allowing for a card to be selected and signed.

Epic Flight by (Benny) Ben HarrisThe odd scientific principle discovered by Harris in 1980 makes an amazing coin transposition possible!

Two coins are displayed. One is marked with a large cross with a permanent marker and a spectator confirms that the cross will not rub off the coin. In full view, the marked coin and the plain coin transpose through the back of a spectator’s own hand.

Fully examinable, easy to do. The scientific principle makes it all work.

"...situational, astonishing and a devilishly clever piece of magic. The best effect I've seen in a long time!" - Joshua Jay

"Mind expanding magic in every sense..." - Michael Ammar

Hole in the Head created a furor when released to the general magic community. Originally worked up as a situational piece for a David Blaine TV special, the general market place would have nothing of something as esoteric. No, you had to be able to pull it out of a baggie and stumble through it for a street...

Oil and Water Delux

Oil and Water Delux by (Benny) Ben HarrisThis effect appears described briefly, yet adequately, in the Singapore Lecture Notes. This is a more thorough description and is accompanied by clear photographs, making it easier to learn.

The routine uses four black cards, and four red cards. Interlaced three times, they always separate. The moves used are smooth and create a lovely illusion. It does not look like sleight of hand, it really looks quite convincing! Heavily based in Marlo's work.

Solid Gold Easy Action by (Benny) Ben HarrisThis is one of Ben Harris's favorite effects. Released in 1987, it featured heavily in his lectures across the '87-89 period and was a total sell-out at the major magic conventions, or whenever demonstrated.

In effect, a small envelope is shown, signed on BOTH sides by a spectator, and then left IN FULL VIEW upon the table. A card is now FREELY selected from the deck, and also signed. The spectator pushes his card squarely into the deck and then counts the cards. Mysteriously, his card has vanished. There are now just 51 cards in the deck.

This is a reputation-maker. The magic just seems to come out of the blue as you pick up your drink bottle, cap it, and then crack it across your knee where it vanishes completely!

Three applications are taught. A formal handling with Topit, a tabled handling and a cheeky walk-around handling for parties when you are hanging with friends. For these latter two approaches, you need no Topit, just the bottle. You can even make a partly filled bottle vanish or pass through a table-top!

Ionic is a ranging force, applied with the fingers, in order to arrive at an apparently random (or unknown number). Such forces—performed on the fingers—have been used for decades. Karrel Fox and Max Maven are both famous for their applications of the approach. For the record, Ray Hyman is credited with FIRST applying the idea to the use of the fingers. (See The Linking Ring, October, 1953). Ray’s application was for a book test called “It’s In The Book.”

Here’s how it usually works: Imagine asking a spectator to hold...

Dimensional Relativity

Dimensional Relativity by (Benny) Ben HarrisThe classic from 1981: Signed Card Turns Inside Out - Examinable

Only once in a while do you create a new plot. Folks have always said - and will probably continue to say - "it's all been done before." Of course, that's usually the case, but not every time.

Dimensional Relativity was released in 1981 as printed booklet. The original concept of "turning a signed card inside out" (created on the nineteenth day of August, 1979 and shared with Woody Meltcher) became fashionable enough to see the book through two printings in three months. The reviews were excellent and lots of folk took notice. ...

Exit 51

Exit 51 by (Benny) Ben Harris
"A beautifully realized moment of astonishment ... the new gimmick is very clever indeed!" - Paul Harris

"A stunning vanishing deck that takes an original idea by Paul Harris and sends it to the moon." - Richard Kaufman

The remarkable effect shifts "the moment" in Paul Harris' amazing Vanishing Deck allowing for a card to be selected and signed.

This selected card is shuffled back into the deck which is then held in full view.

Upon command, the entire deck visually vanishes (that's right - it just blinks out of being) leaving only the chosen card as a poignant applause cue.

Exit 51 is...

"The Crossroads technique alone, which we really like, will be seen as food for thought by many. As mentalists, our variation would be to use no deck at all. Just a single, thought-of card in the pocket. The solution will dawn on you after reading the text..." - Richard Busch & Larry Becker

"If you like clever and practical ideas, this ebook has them. Even for effects utilizing marketed props, Ben's alternative presentations lift them up to a new level of application. If you appreciate creative ideas because this will spur you on to thinking of alternative applications for the many props that are lying idle in your magic drawers, then this book is highly recommended for you." - John Teo

The majority of effects are new presentations and uses for existing props like: The Mother...

Singapore Lecture Notes

Singapore Lecture Notes by (Benny) Ben HarrisBen Harris' first set of lecture notes from his first ever lecture in 1985— re-written, re-photographed...

These notes have been re-written and re-photographed. The material is bright, crisp and hard-hitting. Mostly cards, including a wonderful multi-phase OIL AND WATER routine that's a joy to perform. PYRAMID CARDS is an easy and visual stunt revelation that was originally created by Jay Sankey. Here are a couple of cool variations. COMING TOGETHER AGAIN is a real killer item based on a Sadowitz piece from Almanac (see demo video below).

The real highlight is the closer Ben used on both nights in Singapore....

Checkout Chi: pay with your mind

Checkout Chi: pay with your mind by (Benny) Ben HarrisCheckout Chi is the first new effect from Ben Harris in ages. And, it's been worth the wait.

Checkout Chi will drop the jaws of your audiences when YOU PAY for the restaurant bill, bar tab, groceries, gasoline, movie tickets, or what have you--WITH YOUR MIND. No cash, no credit cards, just your mind!

And, it's genuine: The vendor gets paid. A receipt is issued. All is above board.

Seriously, this is the kind of impromptu magic that makes reputations. The moment arising from a real-world situation (having to pay the bill), and the solution (paying the bill with magic), proving your mastery...

X-Ray

X-Ray by (Benny) Ben Harris & Steve ShuftonA plot by Ben Harris with a solution by Steve Shufton and an out by Felix Schellenberg.
"Ben Harris and Steve Shufton's X-Ray is, I think, one of the three best card effects to come out this decade. It's so unbelievably smart, and I use it all the time." - Joshua Jay

"A wonderfully clear cut plot. This is very powerful and appears utterly impossible." - Marc Paul

From the introduction:

When I was young, my uncle Peter fooled me badly with a simple X-Ray Vision stunt. It played serious havoc with my developing mind. Pete had been using his X-Ray Vision to "see through" the table top in order to identify how many fingers I was holding...

PSI-Poker

PSI-Poker by (Benny) Ben HarrisPSI-POKER is the latest creation from Ben Harris (co-creator of 2010’s hit X-RAY).

This new effect is totally self-working, requiring no skill or gaffs. (Unless you are calling 'peeking the bottom card' a move.) The secret is ancient, but it’s never been used in this manner before. Magic’s leading historians and card experts have confirmed this claim. (To be precise, it is a new property of an old principle. Very clever indeed.)

So, what is PSI-POKER?

The effect is a multiple prediction of how a game of “Texas Hold ‘em” will play out from a shuffled deck. You hand a prediction...

THE QUARTER BACK TEAR

A method for apparently tearing a card cleanly in half, while in reality, only tearing one quarter from the card. This sets you up as either a "quarter ahead" or a "quarter behind" depending upon the intended application....
