Close-Up Elegance by Davide Costi
"I have discovered that you are my twin soul." - Arturo de Ascanio

"Most men have two dimensions, they are tall and wide, Davide has the third dimension, he is deep!" - Rene Lavand

"Davide Costi is a refined gentle performer. He prefers his puzzlements to be blown kisses rather than buffeting blows. There is something merciful in his manner and he truly wishes to share whatever mystery may occur, telling whichever stories ring most true. His climatic noble effect, where two cards matched, stunned even fastest company!" - Jon Racherbaumer

Davide Costi is a true artist. His routines are beautiful, his methods are powerful. Particularly noteworthy is his section on double lifts. With two! forewords by René Lavand.

1st edition 2004, 144 pages; digital edition 2012, 98 pages.
