#2 in Cards hot-list
A collection of new and novel gaffed decks, which you can easily all make at home, and strong effects that go along with them. Requires little to no sleight-of-hand.
From the introduction:
There is nothing sweeter than a gaffed deck that does something amazing, something that cannot be duplicated in any other way. A deck of cards looks so innocent, and is such a common object, that when it is converted into a wolf in sheep's clothing, the audience becomes an easy meal for the predatory wolf pack.
Many of the ideas contained in this manuscript have been encouraged, corrected, improved and commented upon by my friends, Richard Kaufman, Max Maven, Stephen Minch, Matt Field and David Britland.
One important note: don't be intimidated by the detailed instructions. Once you have made the decks, learning the tricks will be easy. Performance is almost self-working.
"Bob Farmer has been writing large, adventurous, and fascinating books on various aspects of card magic for decades, but he never published them. Now he is ... Never one to shy away from hyperbole, Mr. Farmer has nevertheless stated the truth, but left out that he has invented these new gimmicked decks that do NEW things ... It's cheap for what you get, which is an exciting exploration of an under-developed area of card magic." - Richard Kaufman
"I have been fortunate in my life to have as good friends some of the cleverest people in magic. Included in that group is fellow Canadian Bob Farmer ... Most of the routines in this ebook have a mental flavor; many involve a spectator merely thinking of a card and the performer revealing it, often in a surprising way ... Also included in this collection, is one of Bob's most diabolical effects: 'Déjà Voodoo' ... Harry Anderson used a version of Déjà Voodoo in his award-winning Magic Castle stage act." - Michael Close
