Glass of Water Production Routine

Percy Press
Glass of Water Production Routine by Percy Press

This was a favourite effect of the much loved Percy Press. He was, perhaps, the last of the English 'Street Conjurors' and had performed this effect thousands of times.

HOW IT LOOKED

Percy would tilt his small table forward to show that the top was solid. Replacing it on the ground, he laid a white handkerchief on it. A 10p coin was borrowed and placed in the centre of the handkerchief. He then borrowed a soft trilby hat and covered the coin with it. He lifted the hat and the coin was still on the hank. He placed the coin in his left hand and it vanished. He replaced the mouth-down hat...

Ron MacMillan's Symphony of the Spheres

Lewis Ganson
Ron MacMillan's Symphony of the Spheres by Lewis Ganson

At the Annual Convention of the International Brotherhood of Magicians (British Ring) at Scarborough in 1957, an unknown magician walked away with the First Prize - The British Ring Shield. The manipulative act which caused so much enthusiastic comment featured Billiard Balls, and even well posted magicians in the audience were at a loss to know from where several of the balls were produced. Here was something new in manipulative magic, and there was much speculation as to the means whereby balls could be "stolen" so cleanly, without a hint being given of their original secret location, or...

Chan Canasta's Book of Oopses by Chan Canasta

This book could fetch hundreds of dollars on ebay. It was very hard to find a copy. The book was shrouded in mystery. The few that had a copy didn't tell what it was. Many who didn't have one, wanted it badly. Now the wait is over...

Martin Breese reprinted this one of a kind book. And the one of a kind Martin Breese let me reproduce it as ebook.

Given the recent popularity of psychological methods in mentalism, the Book of Oopses was decades ahead of its time. Most effects use psychological quirks and biases to predict your entirely 'free' choice. It is eerily disturbing how easily we...
