Clever Card Conjuring by C. A. George Newmann

A hard-to-find treatise on the beveled or "Stripper" pack, written by a world-famous mentalist and master magician. Out of print since 1923 (according to The Magic Wand magazine), this booklet is now back in a revised and expanded edition. No matter if you're a fan of this pioneering mentalist or simply want a collection of fine tricks to use with your tapered deck, this is a nice collection of a whopping 37 effects that you'll be happy to add to your repertoire.

"The most complete and extensive treatise ever compiled and published on the charming and effective uses of the standard 'Stripper Deck'." - Floyd G. Thayer

"Thousands of these packs (strippers) have been sold, yet very few purchasers really know how to use them -- principally because the accompanying directions have been scant and unsatisfactory." - George Johnson

"Newmann fully describes the stripper deck and its arrangement and technique, gives important rules and suggestions, lucidly describes, and gives variations of nearly forty effects, the majority of which are not generally known and quite a number of which are entirely original with the author. A highly interesting and valuable work well worthy a place in the best magical libraries." - Dr. A. M. Wilson
