Le Tour Du Fil Hindou

Lewis Ganson

Le Tour Du Fil Hindou by Lewis GansonLe tour du Fil gypsy fait partie de ces effets classiques dans la même lignée que les anneaux chinois et les balles et gobelets.

Bon nombre des meilleurs magiciens ont intégré le Fil gypsy à leurs spectacles : Fred Kaps, Dany Ray, Ricky Jay, Billy McComb, Ali Bongo, Hans Trixer, Marconick et Eugene Burger pour n'en citer que quelques-uns. Lewis Ganson enseigne ici en détail avec du texte, des photos et des illustrations les tenants et les aboutissants de cette routine.

Reelistic Magic

Lewis Ganson

Reelistic Magic by Lewis GansonA collection of tricks, stunts and bits of business using a reel.

A reel is a very powerful stage and parlor tool. (In its miniature versions it can even be used in close-up environments.) It is small enough that it can be easily palmed, but powerful enough to pull silks, cords and other items in a fraction of a second. It is like an invisible hand that the performer can use at his command.

Includes care, repair and maintenance of reels.

  • The Reel
  • Re-Threading The Reel
  • Ken Brooke's Method For "The Untying Silk"
  • The Self-Tying Silk
  • The Untying Silk Again
  • Penetrations With Silk ...

The Art of Close-Up Magic Volume 1

Lewis Ganson

The Art of Close-Up Magic Volume 1 by Lewis GansonProbably the greatest collection of close-up tricks ever assembled. And no card tricks are included in this first volume. It is so important not only because of its size (see the humongous table of contents below) and quality, but because the author has gone beyond the mere explanations of tricks and routines. The opening chapter, 'The Presentation of Close-Up Magic', embraces the whole approach to close-up performance. Includes hundreds of illustrations by Dennis Patten.

"In all the world of magic, I don't think you could find a fairer, squarer person than Lewis" - Dai Vernon, Genii December 1974.

"As I look at the literary scene of magic today, the name of one man stands out above all the rest and the owner of that name is my old friend Lew Ganson." - Peter Warlock, Genii, December 1974.
