Tricks For Everyone by David DevantClever conjuring with common objects. Illustrated with 134 photographs.

From the introduction:

The following chapters will be found to be practical lessons in conjuring. Many people have the erroneous idea that if they know how a trick is done they are quite capable of presenting it to an audience. I have always found that a very little experience will show such persons that the mere knowledge of the secret of a trick is not of much value to a beginner unless it is accompanied by some simple instructions showing him the best way of using his knowledge. Therefore, I shall not merely give...

I am certain that if the reader of this book will apply himself to the contents and study the illustrations carefully he will have at his command not only a beautiful act but one that he will be more than proud to present any place and under any conditions. The possibilities for adding to this act and making it still more spectacular are unlimited. Within these pages you will find added suggestions that I have used myself and found to be practical,...

Solar Wind by William LeeSolar Wind - The Perpetual Floating Card - is not so much a magic trick as it is a piece of magic art. A card hovers above the deck...and just keeps on hovering. Leave it on a desk, table, or shelf and it could be enjoyed for years.

Is the method invisible? It depends on the surface, the background, and the lighting. Set up on a dark surface it is very difficult to see the mechanism, even from a couple of feet away. By choosing the right conditions it is possible to make it even more invisible. However, the method is not 100% invisible.

This is hard to build. Some of the steps require...

The Telesthesia Code by Unknown MentalistPrice $6. This is an intro price and will go up to $12 on Nov 26, 2018.

This is a two person telepathy act. The Telesthesia Code is simple and easy yet undetectable. You and your assistant (or partner or spouse etc) can learn this code in under 5 minutes. There are absolutely no words that need to be spoken nor any body signals required. You and your assistant do not even face each other and there is no eye contact. And yet, you can seemingly relay thoughts to your assistant.

This method is ideal for close up situations and with a bit of audience management can easily be adapted to a parlor...

Top Secrets of Magic 3 by J. G. Thompson Jr.From the introduction by Martin Gardner:
With this distinguished background it is little wonder that his latest series of books, Top Secrets of Magic, of which this is the third, is a veritable treasure trove of material, clearly and simply explained, and displaying a remarkable knowledge of what has been done and is being done today in every branch of conjuring. The large clear photographs make the text delightfully easy to follow. Magicians throughout the world will look forward now to volume 4, then 5, and as many more as Jim will find time to write, for he is putting together a series of such scope...

Top Secrets of Magic 2 by J. G. Thompson Jr.From the introduction by Milbourne Christopher:
I first heard of Jim Thompson in the pages of Ted Annemann's Jinx. Then his main interest was mental magic. I have never seen him perform but I have seen many magicians use the tricks he has put into print. I always visualize him as a mild mannered man who would make an excellent beacon in a blackout. See his "Moonlight Madness," page 301 in Annemann's Practical Mental Effects, or page 265 in My Best.

This current volume of "Top Secrets" is the second in a planned trilogy. You have most of the objects needed for the feats described. If something special is required, Jim will tell you how to make it, or where to buy it....

Top Secrets of Magic 1 by J. G. Thompson Jr.

What a wonderful book on sleight of hand magic with small objects this is - profusely illustrated with more than 200 photos, by a recognized inventor, author, and reviewer of magic.

From the introduction by Blackstone:

But, there has always been a dearth of practical routines, probably due to the difficulty encountered by most magicians in linking tricks into a smoothly flowing series of mysteries and, perhaps, because of some innate trait of laziness found in most of us. That is why I am so impressed and pleased with the text of Jim’s book. It truly helps to fill an unfortunate gap in magical...

Im Fokus Nr. 2: Nie wieder by Christian Scherer

Die äusserst überzeugende und täuschende Präsentation eines Klassikers.

Der Vorführende berichtet, wie er als Anfänger von einem Falschspieler hereingelegt wurde. Dieser zeigte drei Riesenkarten vor, eine Dame, einen König und ein Ass. Der Vorführende sollte Geld auf eine Karte setzen. Er setzte 10 Euro auf den König, diesen stellte der Falschspieler beiseite, die beiden anderen Karten daneben. Als er die einzelne Karte umdrehte, war es jedoch nicht der König, sondern die Dame, und der Vorführende verlor. Nun setzte der Vorführende 20 Euro auf das Ass, an der Stelle des Asses...

Puzzling Placemats by Dave ArchThe next time you perform at or host a dinner (Thanksgiving?) consider making copies of these three different placemats - setting them out on the tables for people to play with during the dinner or prior to your show. The magic works for them, and they won't even be sure how it worked! They'll take the placemats with them to show their friends. While you're at it, why not put your contact information on the back? Includes a Bermuda Triangle Mystery based on a Jim Steinmeyer idea and a Terri Rogers' concept of using patterned borders for a fun pencil race. Designed by a professional graphic artist, these...

Plans For Deceptions by Peter WarlockFrom the Foreword:
The welcome accorded to Design for Magic has given me the necessary encouragement to present this present volume. I hope that among the score of original ideas and effects, there may be something of use for every type of magician. Some of the effects rely in part upon mechanism for their accomplishment. My views on mechanism in Magic agree with those well expressed by John Mulholland, who a few years ago wrote the following in The Sphinx.

"When mechanics are used in Magic, they must be so designed and constructed that they are infallible. When a trick depends on mechanism and the mechanism fails...

For nearly the whole period of the present war I have lectured to and entertained many tens of thousands of members of H.M. Forces—men and women—in Camps, Sites and Barracks of every type, including Military Hospitals, Institutions and a multitude of children.

It is at the repeated requests of these men and women in the Forces that I am writing this little book of my ventriloquial experiences collected over a lifetime, and I am hopeful that it will act as a tonic and give encouragement to all who may be...
