For a long time I had the perception that magic with thimbles is at best something for kids. Then I saw a performance by a japanese magician. And it blew my mind. It was a fast paced, very visiual and beautiful manipulation performance.
In this booklet Hugard teaches all the moves and quite a few routines to build your own thimble act. One of the big advantages of thimbles is that they are easier to manipulate than other objects such as balls and coins.
