Edward Marlo

(Chicago, Illinois, October 10, 1913 - November 7, 1991)

Born Edward Malkowski. He was one of the most notable names in card magic with groundbreaking publications and a staggering amount of new moves and innovations. To underscore his prolific output and creativity another legend of card magic, the Spaniard Arthuro Ascanio coined the phrase: "When in doubt then for Marlo" - meaning if you don't know who invented a certain concept or move the creator was most likely Marlo.

Marlo himself coined the term cardician, a term which has since been used for magicians who only perform card magic. His first publication in 1938, Pasteboard Presto, was an unheralded thunderbolt which merely hinted at the bulk of work which was to follow.

The many sleights he created have changed the face of card magic. One notable example is his Snap change, used in David Blaine's Street Magic special. Marlo essentially created his own school of magic with many now famous disciples who learned under Marlo: Jon Racherbaumer, Jimmy Nuzzo, Steve Draun, Dave Solomon, Simon Aronson, Bill Malone, Allan Ackerman, Amando Gutierrez, Don May, Randy Wakeman

Marlo wrote over sixty books and manuscripts, and contributed over 2000 tricks in the field of card magic many contributed to various magazines. He did not limit himself to cards as he also authored works on coin magic and dice magic. His most famous works are The Cardician and Revolutionary Card Technique.

He also wrote a series of private manuscripts that were circulated only among the top card magicians of the era. Titles included Riffle Shuffle Systems, Patented False Shuffle, Faro Controlled Miracles and others. They are extremely rare and highly sought after.

6 Hallucinations

6 Hallucinations by Edward MarloThree playing cards vanish and then reappear in your pocket.

Here is a treat for serious card lovers. A gimmicked version of the amazing 'hallucination' plot along with 5 further non-gimmicked handlings. Ed was always thorough, and here it shows in style.

In effect, three spectators each look at the top card of the deck, one at a time. The performer comments about how people often have problems recalling details, and how various descriptions of the same event can vary dramatically. He offers to prove his point.
