Rising Cards & Levitating Cards

The rising cards is a classic effect. Dozens of methods have been devised from purely sleight of hand to the most intricate and complicated apparatus, and everything in between. We are also including card levitating effects where typically a card floats while it is lying horizontally, whereas in the classic rising cards effect a vertically positioned card rises out of a deck in most cases without floating above the deck.

Nobunaga Rising

David Devlin

Nobunaga Rising by David DevlinMany performers like to end their Ambitious Card routine by making the card vanish from the deck and cause it to reappear in some impossible location such as their wallet or the card box. The problem with that is that the effect of the Ambitious Card is that the selected card continuously rises to the top of the deck. Once the card vanishes from the deck, it is no longer the Ambitious Card. It is a vanished card. When it is produced from the wallet or wherever it becomes a reappearing card.

Nobunaga Rising is a perfect ending to the Ambitious Card because it seems just as impossible as the...

Scripted #11: Rising Card

Larry Brodahl

Scripted #11: Rising Card by Larry BrodahlOne of the more difficult tasks facing magicians is coming up with scripts - of any sort. A script that highlights the magic while still being relatable to the audience.

The effect is that the magician shuffles and then hands the spectator the deck of cards, while explaining that he's going to do a trick onehanded. The spectator HIMSELF removes one card and puts it face down on the table, and then gives the cards back to the magician. The magician fans the deck, inserts the chosen card into the middle of the deck, and then holds the deck perfectly squared in one hand.

He holds the deck...

Pocket Riser 2.0: Borrowed and Signed

Ralf Rudolph (Fairmagic)

Pocket Riser 2.0: Borrowed and Signed by Ralf Rudolph (Fairmagic)No slits! No thread! Take a borrowed Pad!

Borrow a paper pad (Post-it) and let the spectator sign the front page. After you draw the wrong card you add a few lines to make a box. Then the chosen card rises out of the drawn box. After that you rip of the signed paper and fold it (if you wish) and heat up with a lighter (you don't have to do this). When the spectator opens the paper, the card is gone. He could check the pad and keep all items as a souvenir! No threads, no slits! (like the first Version). If you follow the routine you end up clean. You can build the gimmick in a few minutes....

Pocket Riser

Ralf Rudolph (Fairmagic)

Pocket Riser by Ralf Rudolph (Fairmagic)You may have seen something similar in a stage version from Martin Lewis. Ralf got his inspiration from Martin's effect and worked out a pocket version of it that uses a sticky note pad.

Effect: Draw a wrong prediction of a playing card on a sticky note pad. The chosen card rises out of the same picture. Give it away as an impossible souvenir.

Card Kinetics

David Britland

Card Kinetics by David BritlandCard 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...

Duplex

Kevin Schaller

Duplex by Kevin SchallerDuplex is a card rising effect from the mind of Kevin Schaller. It builds and improves on an old theme which allows you to show the box from all sides as well as allows you to show the box completely empty before you insert the deck.

A freely chosen and signed card is lost into the deck and the deck is put back into the box. Without any funny moves the signed card starts to rise all the way out of the box.

The best part of the trick is that there are no threads, wires, weights, rubber bands or magnets - just the box and the deck. No forcing. No cellophane needed. Box can be shown empty...

The Big Book of Rising Cards

Claude Klingsor

The Big Book of Rising Cards by Claude KlingsorThis is the most beautiful magic book ever published! I know, this is a pretty strong claim, but read on and judge for yourself.
"I've just had a chance to spend a couple of hours with this book. Wow, Chris. This is an amazing book. Not only does it look incredible, it is of immense historic value." - Ben Harris

"A terrific work, a must have for anybody who thinks of him- or herself as a magician." - Max M.

Before I tell you why I am convinced this is the most beautiful magic book ever published, allow me to give you a bit of history on how this book came to be.

In 1954 Claude Klingsor published...

AIR Almost Impromptu Riser (flash video version)

Dave Forrest

AIR Almost Impromptu Riser (flash video version) by Dave ForrestBeing a huge fan of the classic 'rising card' effect, Dave asked himself the following question: "Is it possible to cause a freely selected and signed card to rise from the centre of a regular deck of cards that is locked inside the card case?"

The answer is YES! The answer is AIR!

Any card is freely selected from the deck. The card is signed before being lost back into the pack. The pack is placed into the box and you focus your attention on the top of the cased deck. Slowly and eerily, a card is seen to rise from the center for well over half its length. That card is the signed card....

Visual Card Rise

Ron Jaxon

Visual Card Rise by Ron JaxonVisual Card Rise was inspired by Martin Lewis's effect called Cardiographics. Like many magicians Ron wanted to find a close up version of this amazing effect. After some searching Ron couldn't find anything like it that had the visual strength of the original effect. He wanted the animation to look as real and magical as the original. VCR is the final result.

EFFECT
A card rises out of a picture of a card drawn on the back of a playing card. Only the black marker ink moves. No part of the printed back design moves as the animation takes place!

Visual Card Rise was released for purchase with pre-made...

Alida: Little Winged One

(Benny) Ben Harris

Alida: Little Winged One by (Benny) Ben Harris
"A cool and animated levitation of a card or dollar bill... EASY TO MAKE!"
My goodness, this little effect created a shit-storm when it was released in 2000! I don't think the attacks had been so brutal since Cosmosis (in the mid 1980s). Anyway, this simple and effective idea was loved by some (see, for example, Richard Kaufman in Genii Magazine), and hated by others (see, for example, Michael Close in Magic Magazine). Ben relishes dividing opinion, and Alida certainly did that.

However, it was also a genuine stepping stone in the thought processes that would eventually lead to Enlightenment: The Ultimate Floating Card - which is way superior. So, controversial...

Angel Card Rise Plus

David Britland

Angel Card Rise Plus by David BritlandDavid Britland describes a lovely gimmick which allows you to produce an eerie rising card effect. The basic concept of the gimmick is not new and it was not new in the 80s when the first edition of this booklet was published. However, the value of the ebook lies in the various ways to deploy the gimmick, the different effects one can achieve, and the methods to clean up or transition into the next routine.

You will learn how to achieve a double rise effect where first the deck rises out of the case and then the selected card rises out of the deck. You also read a great anecdote how Dave...

25 Rising Card Tricks

Ulysses Frederick Grant

25 Rising Card Tricks by Ulysses Frederick GrantThis is the first and to this date one of only two English publications exclusively devoted to the rising card effect (the other being Knowing the Rising Cards). This was an early publication by U. F. Grant and is therefore exceedingly rare. Some of the methods described are well known others are quite unusual and therefore highly interesting.

It is likely that the effect of the houlette swinging on two ribbons in Samuel Hooker's famous rising cards is done exactly the way U. F. Grant describes in this manuscript.

The cover boldly states the price: $1 - in 1935 that is. According to the inflation calculator one dollar in 1935 is $15.53 today....

No threads, rubber bands, magnets or other contraptions. The gimmick is simple and right there invisible in the deck. Spectators can stare right at it and not see it. Very clever and very practical.

Knowing The Rising Cards (Know-How Series)

Will Ayling

Knowing The Rising Cards (Know-How Series) by Will AylingSurprisingly little has been published in an encyclopedic form about the classic rising cards in English. You can find some in Greater Magic but the rest is spread out in many books and journals. Although this publication can hardly be called an encyclopedia, it is one of only two publications in English I know which are entirely dedicated to the rising card effect (the other being 25 Rising Card Tricks). It is a wonderful collection of a number of methods, described clearly with photos and illustrations. This was part of the Supreme 'Know How' series.

AIR Almost Impromptu Riser

Dave Forrest

AIR Almost Impromptu Riser by Dave Forrest
Q. Is it possible to perform the classic Rising Card effect without strings, magnets or elastic and without gaffed cards or gimmicked decks of any kind?

A. It is now! With David Forrest's A.I.R!

Effect: A spectator is asked to choose any card (no force) from a freely shuffled, completely regular deck of cards. The card may be signed if so desired. The card is then lost back into the deck. The magician places the entire deck inside the card case and, holding the deck with one hand, begins to concentrate. Very slowly, one card begins to emerge from the center of the cased deck. Little...

Samuel Cox Hooker and his Rising Cards

Chris Wasshuber

Samuel Cox Hooker and his Rising Cards by Chris WasshuberDr. Samuel Cox Hooker's Rising Cards have been an unexplainable fascination for nearly a century. Hooker first showed his effect in 1914, and in 1993 and 2007 John Gaughan gave abbreviated performances. Nobody who has seen the Hooker Rising Cards performed has ever been able to explain how such effects can be accomplished. This includes the most notable and most knowledgeable magicians from past and present. How can, from a borrowed and shuffled deck, any card called for rise in the fairest possible manner on a well lit stage only a few feet from the spectators?

This work is not just about...

The Neyhart Houlette

Arthur P. Neyhart

The Neyhart Houlette by Arthur P. NeyhartThis ebook is a reproduction of the original instruction booklet that came with the Neyhart houlette. It describes operation and care as well as several performance ideas and ways to use the houlette. The Neyhart houlette appeared in the 1930s and made a big splash at the 1935 IBM convention. It is an ingenious device that allows you to let any card named rise out of a 52 card deck - no stooges, threads or electronics.

It is also further described in Samuel Cox Hooker and his Rising Cards and The Big Book of Rising Cards. Other rising card methods can be learned from Knowing the Rising Cards.
