Brick Tilley

Spirit Slate by Brick TilleyThe Davenport Brothers caused a sensation in the last century by seeming to contact spirits. Leaving messages on blank slates was a common method of achieving this. Flaps, magnets and switching were among the ways to achieve results. Here is your chance to reproduce this phenomenon using an ordinary craft store slate, and a piece of chalk. A blank slate is cleaned as it is shown. Yet a bold chalk message appears without any cover or false moves. A stunning effect that startles onlookers. Easy to perform.

Robert A. Nelson & Sir Edwards

Sir Edwards' $100 Horoscope Demonstration Sales Plan by Robert A. Nelson & Sir EdwardsOne of the rarest of offerings from the Nelson Enterprises catalog is this horoscope pitch act that sold for the equivalent of $1600 when first introduced. Only the wealthiest of mentalists and psychic operators would have risked this huge sum in 1942, when the plan was first offered. While the steep cover price helped guarantee exclusivity, those who put the plan to use made big money with it. Now you can, too.

In this collection of six books, electronically "bound" together as one, you'll learn Sir Edwards' proven method of selling horoscopes, booklets and lucky pieces to a willing, "off-the-street" audience. Complete...

Howard P. Albright

Unique "Thought Card" Discovery by Howard P. Albright

You reveal a freely thought card.

EFFECT: Spectator freely selects several cards from his own shuffled deck and thinks of one. Those are returned and mixed in the pack. By means of "tuned thought-waves" the performer discovers the very card spectator is thinking of and, either names it dramatically, or causes it to obey his command in a distinctly "unique" manner. A real mental mystery.

Remember:

  • No advance preparation
  • The card is really only thought
  • Free choice without any force
  • Cards can be borrowed
  • Very subtle method…you will love it.

Enzyklopädie der Rauh-Glatt Kartentricks Teil 1 by Jochen ZmeckAus der Einleitung:
Über das Thema Rauh-Glatt sprach ich zum ersten Mal im Seminar auf dem Magierkongreß 1956 in Leipzig. Danach erschienen von mir 5 Fortsetzungsserien über dieses Thema in der Zauberkunst. Wenn die Redaktion der "Zauberkunst" und ich uns trotzdem noch entschlossen haben, ein Buch darüber herauszubringen, dann vor allem deshalb, damit über dieses interessante Gebiet einmal eine zusammenhängende Enzyklopädie vorhanden ist. Und ich kann Ihnen versprechen: Ich habe Bücher und Zeitschriften gewälzt, ich habe mit vielen Zauberfreunden im In- und Ausland korrespondiert und kann Ihnen...

Geo DeLawrence & Robert A. Nelson

Answers to Questions by Geo DeLawrence & Robert A. NelsonReveals the inside secrets for delivering informative, entertaining and sensational answers to audience questions. A "must-have" text for every mentalist and psychic entertainer.

The secret of success in doing a question and answer act lies in the performer's ability to answer the questions intelligently and to the point. The lack of this knowledge - how to answer the questions - has proven to be a major stumbling block to many performers. While not a new book on the subject, therein lies the gold. The authors' understanding of the subject was so complete and basically sound that this book...

Brick Tilley

Cut and Restored Balloon by Brick TilleyA unique effect using an ordinary balloon. The performer holds the balloon by the neck. Without any false moves he uses a pair of scissors to cut a small portion of the bottom end off. This cutting action is repeated three more times until all that remains is the neck of the mutilated balloon. Putting this to his lips, he blows into the neck. Immediately the balloon restores itself and inflates to its full size. The performer then pops the balloon using the points of the scissors, startling his audience. This can lead into a dove production if you wish.

Chris Wasshuber

Birthdate Magic Square by Chris Wasshuber

A spectator populates a row of a 4x4 square with any four numbers. You fill out the remaining 12 squares in seconds to construct a magic square. Does not require any math.

This has become my favorite impromptu magic square effect, because it is easier than a classic magic square - there is literally no math, unless you consider counting up or down by one math - and it produces a stronger effect with spectators. Thus a win-win all around.

The effect: Take any piece of paper, for example the backside of a restaurant receipt, and draw an empty 4x4 square. Then ask a spectator to fill in any...

Thomas A. Sawyer

Professor Hoffmann and his Conjuring Serials of 1872-1888 by Thomas A. SawyerThis is the first digital-edition of Thomas A. Sawyer's Professor Hoffmann and His Conjuring Serials of 1872-1888. The first printing was a softcover printed book, published in late 2016. That printing consisted of less than 60 copies, so the book is not in wide circulation, and in fact even its existence is not well known.

What is there about the contents of the book that could make it well worthwhile?

Chapter 1 is called "Angelo Lewis in Perspective." That chapter is an overview of Professor Hoffmann. It alludes to several of Hoffmann's books, inside and outside of magic, that can be considered classics. ...

Homing Card by Matteo Filippini

Matteo Filippini presents his personal study on the Francis Carlyle Homing Card.

Starting from the splendid Carlyle version, which appeared on the historical Stars Of Magic, through Roberto Giobbi's Homing Card Plus, from the second volume of Card College, Matteo offers his vision on this great card magic effect.

The Homing Card is certainly one of the few effects with playing cards that are well suited to different situations: close-up, parlour, TV, theatre...

The routine has been divided into several phases and analyzed down to the smallest detail. In addition some historical notes and a rich bibliography.

Doan

Bandual by Doan
"WTF, some witchcraft?? I can't figure it out. Amazing!!" - Mario Tarasini
My name is Doan and here is a new effect with rubber bands. Imagine you just have one rubber band which you instantly turn into two rubber bands. A flash duplication of a rubber band. Everything is done in front of your spectator's eyes. Or, you can also do a very cool and visual rubber band color change effect.
  • No gimmick used
  • Do with any size (within reason) rubber band
  • Watch your angles. This looks great from certain directions, but you are exposed from others. Certainly not a trick to be done surrounded. ...
