Effervescent Effects

Julius Hopkins

Effervescent Effects by Julius HopkinsHere's a book that belongs on every magician's digital shelf. Inside you'll find 48 effects, tips and suggestions for close-up and club performers.

One of our favorites is the "Ring and Balloon Problem," as we can see it being used to win bar bets. Especially if you use an engagement or wedding patter story with your spectator. "Dollar Discernment" is also exceptionally clever as a mental test. We believe entertainers will make great use of it for those situations where they are asked to perform and have no props with them. Good stuff.

Here's a look at what's included:

Grant in the Tarbell Magic Course

Ulysses Frederick Grant

Grant in the Tarbell Magic Course by Ulysses Frederick GrantU. F. Grant contributed some of his best material to the Tarbell Course in magic. Most of this material is unique to the Tarbell Course and does not appear elsewhere. Before Grant died, he compiled a manuscript containing all of the material he contributed. It ranges from close up to stage illusions. A lot of magicians don't have the original Tarbell Course, so here is your chance to get all of the tricks he created and contributed in one place. Fully illustrated and one of the best buys in magic. This is stuff you will use and do and as Harlan Tarbell said, some of the best magic in his course.
