Magic, Fun and Games by Arthur Setterington

Excerpt from the introduction:

As a beginner in magic I had little idea of what was required in the entertaining of children, and, watching more experienced performers, it seemed that a children's show was merely an adult programme shown to children, with little in the way of "byplay", which has become a recognised ingredient in juvenile programmes.

At first, it was a case of trial and error, learning by mistakes, until at a later period I was able to increase my knowledge of the subject, through reading books, magazines, and attending lectures.

It is unfortunate that when an effect...

Power of Persuasion by Arthur Setterington

Setterington offers an alternative presentation theme for a mentalist who does not want to perform like a mentalist. Rather than claim you can read minds or predict the future, you are demonstrating how people can be influenced and persuaded without them knowing or feeling influenced.

What is "Power of Persuasion"?

The Power of Perception by Arthur Setterington

The majority of the effects described, are "mental" items, but the psychic approach has been eliminated in favour of the psychological, and the demonstrations appear to be based on natural, rather than supernatural happenings.

The person presenting this routine, is a demonstrator, not a magician, and the articles used should suit the style of the...

Bottled Bill by Arthur Setterington

A borrowed and signed bill vanishes from a spectator's hands and it is found in a bottle with a screw cap, that was inside a sealed envelope.

An Arthur Setterington original that's a sensation ... clean, easy, visual magic that has impact.

The magician draws attention to a stapled envelope hanging from two clips in a nicely lacquered wood and metal skeleton frame, in complete isolation. He requests the loan of a bill a $1, $5, $10, $100 - a £1, £5, £50 - it doesn't make any difference. A spectator is asked to note the number on the bill or he can place any identifying mark he wishes...
