Card Kinetics by David Britland

Card Kinetics is a manual dealing with methods of making ordinary playing cards move, rise or jump. A number of different approaches are used, all practical and baffling.

In Card Kinetics, David Britland carries on the work detailed in his other manuscript, The Angel Card Rise Plus, and details several versions of this popular effect, each using a simple, disposable gimmick which can be added to your own or a borrowed deck. Users of David's Angel Card Rise should be pleased with its final incarnation, The Ultimate Angel, described in this ebook.

But there is more. Angel Aces, Spring Heeled Jacks, Inside-Out Angel, Business Thoughts, Haunted Angel, all effects in which the cards move in some magical way.

Card Kinetics contains some very unusual material but perhaps the strangest thing of all is that it also contains some non-card routines. Shiv Duggal's Angel of Deatch will be popular with smokers, especially if accompanied by the bit of business called Hell Fire, a spooky incident with a matchbox. And lovers of stage magic are not overlooked with Mechanical Popper, the visual appearance of a silk handkerchief, and they should also find much to inspire them under the title of Angel Ghost, a new look at the classic Dancing Handkerchief which points the way to some interesting possibilities.

[Note: The original printed booklet came with a piece of elastic thread. You will have to supply your own.]

1st edition 1988; 1st digital edition 2012, 33 pages.

Since reading "Angel card rise plus" I discovered the work of David Britland and I am a fan! Card Kinetics is the natural extension of "Angel card rise plus", it will allow you to expand your elastic and invisible thread routines.
