Cards Insight

Cards Insight by Peter DuffieTwenty-two card tricks by one of the most creative card man alive. This ebook in particular shows Peter's fondness of Johann Nepomuk Hofzinser and his ace problem.

1st edition, 2000.

Table of Contents

PSYCHIC MATH: This is a card discovery that appears impossible for two reasons: first, it doesn't seem possible for you to know where the card is in the pack, and second, the card is found using the values of two random cards that were selected before the trick began. The only requirement is a full pack of fifty-two cards.

1st edition, 2000.

Table of Contents

CENTRIFUGAL DIARY: The classic diary prediction as popularised by Ted Danson. However, hopefully, the method will be new to the readers.

THE CHOSEN Few: A card randomly created by a spectator matches a card selected by another spectator. However, you do not touch the deck throughout the trick!

1st edition, 2000.

Table of Contents

TWO’S COMPANY: You remove the four Kings from the deck, then have two spectators each select a card. Both selections are lost into the deck. You now offer the audience a choice of Kings, the red ones or the black ones. They might opt for the red Kings. You pick these up and turn them over whereupon the first spectator’s selection appears reversed between them. You place this sandwich on the table then pick up the two black Kings, which you place face up on top...

ACQUIESCENCE: Two spectators each lay out pairs of cards from freely shuffled packets. Despite any constraints you have accurately predicted the outcome. Miraskillesque perhaps?

THE FLEEING ACES: The four Aces travel from one half of the deck to the other and capture a previously selected card.

FOUR TO THE FORE: A spelling effect based on an Henry Christ premise. Two single Bottom Deals are required but they happen on the off-beat and a fine technique is not necessary.

1st edition, 2000.

Table of Contents

BACKLOG: You spread the deck with the faces upwards and invite a spectator to select any card - free choice. This is left face up on the table. You give him the deck and he now spells the name of his card - first the suit, then the value. This produces two random cards. The values of these cards are added - they might be a 3 and a 10 = 13. When the spectator turns his card over it has the number 13 boldly written on the back!

Table of Contents

PSYCHOGRAPHY: Before you begin, you remove a card from the deck and, without showing its face, you place it between a spectator’s hands. This, you state, is a sprit photograph that has yet to be taken. You now allow another spectator a free choice of any card in the deck and have him sign his name across the face. This card is lost into the middle of the deck which you then give to a spectator. You now remove two cards from your pocket - these two cards have completely blank faces - these, you state,...

THOSE ENIGMATIC ROYALS: A simple idea based on the Vernon 'Card Puzzle' and inspired by Peter Kane's 'Royal Families' from his booklet A Further Card Session, plus Roy Walton's "Split Up" from The Complete Walton, Vol.1.

A SENSE OF FREEDOM: This is based on a number prediction by Shigeo Futagawa using four pieces of cardboard (See "Stunumbers" in Karl Fulves' Self-Working Number Magic, Dover). The only weak point was that the prediction couldn't be written until an advanced stage in the proceedings. The following effect uses playing cards...

Untold by Peter DuffieFifteen clever tricks with cards.

1st edition, 2002.

Table of Contents

SEVEN DOWN: Seven Down was inspired by Ed Marlo's "Magic Seven."

DRAW POKER: This trick came about as a direct result of a conversation with Roy Walton, who had a card problem which he quickly solved and published in OPUS.

FALLING: The following routine is based on Roy Walton's superb "Cascade". Here several Jumbo cards are caused to mutate in a bizarre and visual manner. This was originally called "The Mutant Hand," but I changed the title for this ebook in view of the recently marketed Cascade variation "Mutanz"...

A Pain in the Ace: You push a selected card into the middle of the deck - it rises to the top. You push it back into the middle and flip over the top card. Unfortunately it's not the selection. It's an Ace. You - or a spectator - give the deck a fair cut to bury the face up Ace in the middle. Upon spreading the deck all four Aces are now face up together in the middle - but there's one face down card caught in the middle. This proves to be the awkward selection.

Sticks and Stones: a leaflet for the left hand

Sticks and Stones: a leaflet for the left hand by Jon RacherbaumerRacherbaumer, a man of words - sometimes strong words, sometimes exotic words, sometimes provocative words, sometimes strange words - but always thoughtful and worth reading, wrote a two year column in The Greater Son of the Bat Jr. journal (S.O.B.jr.). All 24 installments of this column are collected here. You will find a lot of Marlo-vian talk, good tricks and interesting articles. I was not a magician in the late 70s, so I cannot say how it was back then in the 'good old times', but reading Sticks and Stones allowed me to imagine how - I am sure - it must have been.

Magical Masterpieces

Magical Masterpieces by Louis NikolaThe most famous invention of Nikola is his card system, which is described in The Nikola Card System and in an abbreviated version in Encyclopedia of Card Tricks. Cards are not the only area Nikola excelled in.

From the inside cover: Magical Masterpieces is no mere fanciful title. It is an apt description of a selection from the accumulated repertoire of a practical magician whose outstanding characteristic is the painstaking perfection and stamp of individuality of all his productions. It is safe to say that if a new book of magic provides only one workable and suitable addition to the reader's store it is a sound investment. The magician...

It is not just for the beginning coin student but for anybody who would like to brush up on some basic moves and learn several new outstanding routines.

Physical Amusements and Diverting Experiments by Giuseppe PinettiThis is a wonderful and extremely rare book. If you could find this book at all somewhere to purchase, you would need to put down around $5000. But it is not just its rarity which is so fascinating, it is its contents. This is a great magic book. Many outstanding tricks are taught. I found new routines and new principles I haven't seen and read anywhere else - and I consider myself as fairly well read in magic. I love this book. It is highly recommended.

Hand Shadows by Henry BursillAt some time or other most of us have amused ourselves by casting shadows on the wall with our hands. Hand shadows are an ever-popular diversion, especially with the young. The number and variety of objects that it is possible for you to form, simply by moving your hands and fingers around in different positions, is practically limitless, subject only to your patience and ingenuity.

But figuring out the exact finger positioning is not a simple matter; some shapes are quite difficult to obtain. The author of this delightful picture book of hand shadows spent long hours working out the figures...

Secrets

Secrets by Ulysses Frederick GrantThe title "Secrets - Malini, Leipzig, Vernon, Jarrow, ..." suggests a lot, but these are merely the interpretations and versions of U. F. Grant to some of the classics of Malini, Leipzig, Vernon, Jarrow and others. Grant uses only one page to describe each effect and method. This book is therefore to some degree a disappointment. Nevertheless I think it is a cheap way to learn the plots and a method to several of the greatest tricks of all time. Just don't expect very detailed descriptions. Grant displays in this book an arrogant writing style with comments like 'This is good' or "The best method"...

Moe's Miracles

Moe's Miracles by Moe SeidensteinMoe Seidenstein was a legendary character who baffled the magic convention attendees in the 1930s with "Moe's Move a Card" and "Think a Card," stunning effects with no possible hint as to method. Then, Moe disappeared. Now you can learn 11 of Moe's tricks - well, actually 10 because for one no method is given. Moe relies heavily on estimation. A good primer for estimation is Kato on Estimation.

11 pages.

Zingone's Recorded Card Tricks

Zingone's Recorded Card Tricks by Luis ZingoneThis is a wonderful item in many respects. First, these three 78 rpm records and booklet, bound in a beautiful hard cover are quite rare. I have seen copies with missing instructions or broken records. Second, Zingone was a fast and smooth professional card manipulator. Being able to hear him speak and perform tricks accompanied by his voice is a treat. And third, the six tricks taught are excellent. You receive six MP3 files for each of the two sides of the three records, plus an electronic reproduction of the instruction booklet. Everything is integrated into a nice ebook with table of contents...

The Volta System

The Volta System by Burling HullThe Volta System For The Feat Of Reading Sealed Messages ... says it all! Burling Hull’s personal verbosity shows up in this 16 page booklet of "the latest advances for the reading of sealed messages." In 1929, when this was released, it was the final word in sealed message reading. Today, it still ranks at the top of any list of secrets of this kind.

It covers: impromptu work with borrowed stationary; the first practical solution of what was once considered an impossible feat; the ability of this "Power" to always be available to the performer

These words from Burling Hull were used...

Five Mind Reading Acts Exposed

Five Mind Reading Acts Exposed by unknownFive Mind Reading Acts Exposed was written prior to 1940 and upon reading the 12 pages of instruction you realize that everything old is new again. Although all the routines are designed for a two person act some of the ideas contained can be adapted for a single performer. No author is credited and it is a compilation of secrets of acts of that era.

Act No. 1 is the reading of dates on coins sealed in envelopes. Today’s mentalists could combine this with Psychometry and Cold Reading to use as a feature in their act.

Act No. 2 is a preamble to the question answering act of Falkenstein....

Magic by Theory

Magic by Theory by Daniel SkahenAs the title suggests, this is a pure work about theory, but not old and dusty thoughts, instead a fresh and new look by Daniel Tyler. Certainly you will find topics which are as old as magic, such as 'the merit of gimmicks' and 'misdirection', but you will also find a chapter dealing with 'where to shop', which is up-to-date and includes places on the internet. This chapter alone can save you a multiple of the price of this ebook. Or what about 'getting the girl' or 'how to admire Blaine, but be yourself' - all topics that Daniel discusses. You might be shocked to hear that Daniel is just eighteen...

Tavern Magic 1

Tavern Magic 1 by Michael WildThis ebook is the author debut of Michael Wild. But he is no beginner when it comes to handling coins. He likes to perform in a bar/restaurant environment, and all his routines have been extensively tested there. I was impressed with his meticulous way of describing his routines, his thinking and motivation. He included many photos to describe the modus operandi. This makes it very easy to follow along and learn these fantastic coin routines. The PDF version is done in a beautiful magazine like layout. Michael is also a regular at The Magic Café online forum, aka Wildstone. If you have any...

Tavern Magic 2

Tavern Magic 2 by Michael WildTavern Magic 1 was so well received that Michael Wild decided to follow it with a second volume which has even better routines. To use his own words "it’s larger, has more photos, and contains some pretty damn good material (if I do say so myself)". Yes, it has almost double the amount of photos - and I thought volume one was already chock full of photos - and it teaches indeed amazing miracles using the Sun & Moon gaff coin set. For reviews and comments about Michael's innovative work see Tavern Magic 1.

Bar Magician

Bar Magician by Todd Diamond & Michael WildMichael Wild has teamed up with another hard core bar magician, Todd Diamond, to share with you their knowledge and great effects for the bar/pub venue. If you read Bar Magician it will become obvious that these two gentlemen have done magic in bars for quite some time. They explain their thinking and reveal some of their best effects. A bar can be a tough and sometimes rude place. Todd and Michael included one effect that matches this environment: "Two Cigarettes Having Sex". Be warned that this presentation may offend you. You might not want to do this for your in-laws next to the Christmas...

Hocus Pocus Junior

Hocus Pocus Junior by unknownThis book includes detailed work on the "Cups and Balls," and the first version of the "Stack of Pence" (i.e., "Stack of Quarters"). It is probably the first English book written from the viewpoint of a performing magician. Any serious magician should read this book, not to learn a lot of new tricks, but to realize how much has been known for a long time. This book is part of our history. I understand that $60 or more for a paper reprint is hard to justify, but now for a few bucks there should be no excuse to not read this wonderful little treasure.

Bar Tricks and Magic 1 by Julian BradbrookThis is a neat little collection of bar tricks, stunts and simple magic effects. Some of it will be familiar to you, some have a new twist or plot and others might be completely new to you. Julian added photos to make it very easy to present these on your next visit to your favorite bar or restaurant. It is a good idea to have a few of these stunts ready when you are not prepared to do a full magic show, but still want to be the center of attention.

Artanis Bottom Deal

Artanis Bottom Deal by Joe ArtanisIt took us two years to track down a copy of these elusive instructions to the bottom deal. Gary Plants, the man with the best bottom deal alive, wrote "The Artanis bottom deal is probably the closest thing in print to the type of bottom deal that I do."

The really cool part of this ebook is that you can study the bottom deal audio-visually: hear, see and read. Artanis explains verbally how to do the bottom deal, you can study 12 photos that capture every stage of the bottom deal, and you can read a set of instructions. The electronic format allowed us to further improve the audio-visual...
