Blockbuster Book Test by Stephen AblettBlockbuster Book Test is a movie theme book test that can be performed close-up, table hopping, in a children's show or on stage. There are several live performances followed by a full explanation of the variation principles used. There are three stages to my routine including a quick flashback revelation, a first letter type reveal, and a prediction ending.

The book can be purchased from most book shops including Amazon and can be fully examined. Furthermore, the movie title is in an extremely large font making it easy to read without glasses and from a distance. The movie revelation allows...

Ulysses Frederick Grant & T. A. Whitney

The "Gee Whiz" Combination and Encore by Ulysses Frederick Grant & T. A. WhitneyHere's a terrific, family-friendly, comedy bill in lemon effect that your audiences will love. A genuine dollar bill is borrowed from a spectator (no stooge) and signed or marked. Anyone wraps it in a borrowed handkerchief. Two lemons are then shown and one is selected (no force). The spectator himself places the lemon in his coat pocket. The borrowed bill vanishes from the hanky while the spectator is holding it. The man with the lemon cuts it open and finds the bill inside. You do not touch the lemon.

And now for an encore, you decide to mark the handkerchief so the owner will recognize...

Oswald Rae

Wizardry with Watches by Oswald RaeFrom the foreword:
Watches have always played a certain part in Magic, but the watch was usually a borrowed one. The excellent "prop" watches now on the market, manufactured of course exclusively for conjuring purposes, open up almost a new era in watch magic.

Having acquired some of these, I endeavoured to work out some effects therewith, and thinking that some of my ideas may be of service to my fellow magicians, I have put them into print. With the exception of those described under "Some Suggestions" all the effects have been actually worked, and the various stands described are easily...

Oswald Rae

Practical Patter for Practical Magicians by Oswald RaeFrom the preface:
Patter fulfils very useful purposes. It serves to entertain and keep an audience in a good humour, also it occupies their minds, and is invaluable as an aid to misdirection. The patter herein has been carefully written round each effect, with due allowance for necessary moves, misdirection and dramatic effect. Obviously much of it can be used for other magical effects, if required, and most performers will doubtless make alterations to suit their own particular style.

Ian Baxter

Himber Happening by Ian BaxterFrom Ian Baxter, a breathtaking new approach to Al Koran's classic Five Star Prediction. The effect is as straightforward as could be expected: A prediction removed from a wallet and handed to a spectator, matches a freely chosen card from a shuffled deck.
"A significant improvement with a radical new use for the Himber Wallet. Very clever thinking indeed. Perfect!" - David Jones

"Loved It. Very, very clean, Loved the fact that the deck is shuffled at the outset. Cannot fault it." - Charles Gauci

Charles Bertram

A Magician in Many Lands by Charles BertramThis is a fascinating travel log, including a good number of photos, by an accomplished magician circling the globe including visits to India, China, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Unites States, Canada and other places. He devotes three fascinating chapters to the tricks of the Indian conjurers, but does not tell us a lot about his own performances during his voyage.

From the introduction by Professor Hoffmann:

A book of travel, written by a keen observer, is always interesting. Charles Bertram was not only a keen observer, but enjoyed opportunities of observation denied to ninety-nine travellers out of...

Charles Bertram

Isn't It Wonderful? by Charles BertramA history of magic interwoven with Charles Bertram's recollections.

From the introduction:

The profession of conjuring, if not the most ancient, is certainly one of the oldest professions in the world, and, before commencing my account of the efforts made by a humble professor of the art, I trust that the reader may be interested by a short sketch of its history. Without this, it is possible that he might receive a book relating to the conjurer's art with a shrug of the shoulders. But conjuring, if it has now drifted down to the level of mere entertainment, has played its part in the history...

William W. Larsen & T. Page Wright

The L. W. Mindreading Mysteries by William W. Larsen & T. Page WrightA nice collection of five more entertaining effects for psychic entertainers that will leave audiences thinking that they have just witnessed genuine mind reading. You get:

Musical Mindreading - A spectator selects one of twelve songs, without revealing it to anyone else - and the medium (seated at the piano or CD player) is somehow able to play that very selection. Most musical mindreading acts have required long study. This can be learned in less than fifteen minutes. Little or no expense. An excellent, apparently impromptu item for the home, club or stage.

Magic and its Professors by Henry Ridgely EvansFrom the introduction:
To those amateurs and to my numerous professional friends who delight in new books, I send forth "Magic and its Professors," trusting that it will prove of interest to them. Part III is a symposium on magic by some of the best performers and inventors of the day. I sincerely thank them for the labor of love which they have rendered. I am indebted to Mr. T. Francis Fritz, the editor of Mahatma, and Mr. William J. Hilliar, editor of The Sphinx, for the right to reprint in book form some of the valuable exposes contained in their respective journals. I am also under obligations to those...

Scripted #31: Clippo by Larry Brodahl

A script and methodology for doing the classic Clippo trick that will make you and your audience appreciate the beauty and mystery of a small, easy to carry trick.

Clippo is a trick that is wonderful on paper, and useless in reality. For such a clever trick, there never seems to be an appropriate reaction. And frankly, the trick has no ending and occasionally fails.

In this manuscript, you'll learn:

  • why Clippo fails to get a good reaction
  • how to make Clippo
  • the script
  • even some of the script writing and design process followed
This trick is suitable for parlor or stage.

Im Fokus Nr. 10: Süchtig nach Baumnüssen by Christian Scherer

Eine neue Interpretation des klassischen Kunststückes, bei dem Baumnüsse in ein Glas wandern.

Der Vorführende outet sich als süchtig nach frischen Baumnüssen. In Phasen, in denen er nicht von seiner Sucht beherrscht wird, verwendet er Baumnüsse auch zum Zaubern. Dies demonstriert er, indem er versucht, drei Nüsse in ein Glas wandern zu lassen, zunächst ohne Erfolg. Mit Hilfe eines Nussknackers und einer Röhre gelingt ihm dies schliesslich. Dann erzählt er, wie er beim Üben von einem Eichhörnchen auf dem Fenstersims beobachtet wurde (ein Plüsch-Eichhörnchen wird auf den Tisch...

Eine dritte leiht er sich vom Publikum aus. Diese wird gekennzeichnet. Die drei Münzen wandern in ein Tuch. Danach wandern Sie aus dem Tuch in die Streichholzschachtel zurück. Doch dort kommen nur zwei Münzen an, die Münze des Zuschauers fehlt. Der Vorführende...

Conjuring Up To Date by HercatFrom the preface:
Card Tricks and Conjuring Up to Date, by reason of recent additions, having become too large for one volume, I have decided to divide it into two, and now present Conjuring Up to Date by itself, in which I give a description of the very latest tricks, thus making it realize its title of "up to date."

In the other volume, Card Tricks With and Without Apparatus, will be found the most recent additions which have been made to escamotage des cartes. When both these volumes have been digested, students in legerdemain are advised to make a study of the more advanced conjuring...

Joseph Jastrow

Psychological Notes Upon Sleight-of-Hand Experts by Joseph JastrowJastrow wondered if the pursuit of sleight-of-hand conjuring develops any special motor or mental powers. He invited Alexander Hermann and Harry Kellar and put them through a range of tests comparing them to average folks. In this article you will find out how these two giants of conjuring compare to the average.

From the introduction:

Having recently enjoyed visits at my Psychological Laboratory from Messrs. Hermann and Kellar, the widely-known prestidigitators, I put together the results of the series of tests to which they kindly submitted. As the time at my disposal for these tests was limited,...
