70 Top Effects From 70 Years of Magician's Magazines

Brick Tilley

70 Top Effects From 70 Years of Magician's Magazines by Brick TilleyBrick Tilley has been a student of magic for decades. In particular he read magic magazines and kept notes about the best and most interesting effects, tips, tricks and articles. In this unusual ebook, he shares the 70 best and most interesting items to read, taken from eight magazines, spanning the last 70 years.

However, note that you are only getting the reference where you will find the article and a short description of what it is and why it should be of interest to you. You don't get the actual articles. You need to have the magazines to read the articles. Several of them are available...

The New York City Lecture

Ulysses Frederick Grant

The New York City Lecture by Ulysses Frederick GrantU. F. Grant seldom did live lectures. One of the few he did was for the Magician's Guild of American in New York City on Oct. 13, 1952. These are the original lecture notes. These notes are very rare and almost impossible to find as they were sold only at the lecture and not distributed through magic dealers.

Here are the contents; none require any difficult sleights and all are easy to do.

Bombay Rope Cut: A cut and restored rope that involves tying no knots.

Zella Ring on Rope: A spectator ties the ends of a length of rope together. The performer then passes a borrowed ring onto...

100% Magic Notes

Troy Murphie

100% Magic Notes by Troy MurphieI attended the Pavel 100% Magic Lecture when he visited Sydney, Australia sometime around 2005. I traveled the 2 hr drive home after the lecture and made sure to jot down notes about the effects that I was impressed with before I retired to bed that night. In hindsight I wish that I had written explanations for all the effects, but it was not to be. So what we have here are 8 items from this lecture explained in my own words. Along with the 100% Magic Lecture 'pictorial memory aid' which contains diagrams of the routines, you should have no trouble following the brilliant thinking behind these eight items.

Pavel

100% Magic by PavelA selection of some thirty varied tricks for stage, parlor and close up, illustrating practical examples of magical plots and their solutions.

These are lecture notes for one of Pavel's lectures. Most of the descriptions are pictorial. Pavel intended this as a memory aid for people who attended his lecture. The descriptions are therefore not necessarily complete or very detailed in all cases.

Lift: levitate a wallet

Kevin Parker

Lift: levitate a wallet by Kevin ParkerA new way to lift a wallet. It's not what you think.

You won't believe the video. This is an ultra-visual, realistic levitation of your spectator's wallet, without thread. You levitate their wallet after asking if he's seen the various ways of 'lifting' wallets (pickpocket style). You offer to demonstrate a new method on his wallet, needing to see his wallet first to see if it's the "right type," just an excuse for you to lay the wallet on the table (or whatever surface) and make it lift.

Practicality: Super Easy. From beginning to end, not one gimmick is seen nor anything exposed that...

Tricks for Travelling Tricksters

Ken de Courcy

Tricks for Travelling Tricksters by Ken de CourcyImpromptu tricks for audiences who speak little to no English.

In today's global world it is important to be able to do magic for folks who do not speak your language or who do not understand the cultural nuances and jokes you may have in your primary program. Many of the tricks taught are impromptu. From the introduction by Billy McComb:

I can't think of anyone better qualified to write this than Ken de Courcy. He and Susan take at least a couple of holidays a year to strange exotic countries where the inhabitants speak little or no English. He doesn't, like some magicians, drive his wife potty by...

No Jacket Required: The Tiepit by Enrico VarellaAs seen on the Bob Fitch Topit Workshop DVDs (Bob Kohler Magic).
"I've always thought this was a great idea, and a much-needed addition to the whole jacket-bound Topit saga." - Lewis Jones, Author of Ahead of the Pack, Seventh Heaven and Encyclopaedia of Impromptu Card Forces

"It looks really good - Lots of very useful material. In many ways, you are selling it short by calling it the Tiepit book as it contains a wealth of information well beyond that particular idea. You may want to add a subtitle which lets the buyer know how much additional information is in the book." - Jay Scott Berry ...
