Tearing a Lady in Two (German)

David Britland

Tearing a Lady in Two (German) by David BritlandEFFEKT: Obwohl man diesen Effekt mit Spielkarten vorführen kann, ist es aus technischen und wohl auch aus Gründen des "Verkaufs" besser, zwei Geschäftskarten oder Blanko-Visitenkarten zu verwenden. Bei der Vorführung erwähnen Sie die großen Illusionen, die heutzutage im Fernsehen vorgeführt werden. Und obwohl Sie nicht alle Vorrichtungen mitgebracht haben, wird sicher eine der anwesenden jungen Damen sich gern auf der Tischplatte durchsägen lassen. Auf eine entsprechende Bemerkung ihrerseits sollten Sie schon eine Reaktion bekommen. Und Sie sollten auch in der Lage sein, ein wenig daraus...

La Femme Coupée

David Britland

La Femme Coupée by David BritlandEFFET

Bien que vous puissiez utiliser cet effet avec des cartes à jouer, il est techniquement, et probablement commercialement meilleur d'utiliser des cartes de visite soit à votre nom, soit vierges. Durant votre spectacle vous introduisez le thème des grandes illusions qui sont maintenant pratiquées à la télévision. Bien que vous n'ayez pas ammené tous vos accessoires avec vous, une jeune femme de l'assistance serait peut-être honorée d'être sciée en deux sur la table. Ceci devrait vous obtenir quelques réactions et vous devriez pouvoir développer un petit jeu autour des réactions...

Chan Canasta: A Remarkable Man Volume 1

David Britland

Chan Canasta: A Remarkable Man Volume 1 by David BritlandChan Canasta (1920 to 1999) was something of a TV sensation in the 1950s as one of Britain's leading mentalists. His blend of psychology and traditional conjuring which he called psychmagic, was a breath of fresh air. This beautifully ebook is a unique record of his mentalist effects and unique entertaining style.
"Martin has excelled himself with the production values. It looks beautiful; maybe it is the most attractive looking book I have ever seen. If you are interested in Canasta then you will have to buy the book." - Peter Zenner

"I'm not sure that there have been other books quite like this....

Consumer Control

David Britland

Consumer Control by David BritlandFive ESP cards are laid out on the table. Point to one and push it aside. Point to another and push it aside. Discard two more until just one is left. Do you think I could have predicted that card in advance?

A duplicate set of ESP cards has been on view throughout. They are all face down except one. It's your card. Not only that, but it has a completely different colored back from the rest!

Consumer Control is simple, easy and direct. No counts, moves or sleight of hand. A baffling demonstration of psychological persuasion.

[Note: This ebook does not come with the specially prepared cards. One set of ESP cards is regular. The other set is prepared with rough and smooth but in a very special way. If you have a roughing spray or stick you will be able to make your own cards. You will need ESP cards with two different backs. You will also need two double backers that match the two different backs and two envelopes.]

Cutting Remarks

David Britland

Cutting Remarks by David BritlandCutting Remarks was originally intended to form part of Card Kinetics, a booklet dealing with various methods of making playing cards move with various kinds of elastic loops, including those pioneered by Finn Jon and pirated by everyone else. However, this version of the Self Cutting Deck, for this is what Cutting Remarks is all about, doesn't use elastic of any kind, not even a thread. Peter Duffie used a similar principle in his effect Ascension to achieve a very unusual version of the Rising Card.

David's first introduction to a threadless Self Cutting Deck was provided by Bob Ostin. His version of...

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...

Parallax: a topological miracle

David Britland

Parallax: a topological miracle by David BritlandHow many effects do you know that use only one playing card? Well Parallax is just that.

The performer shows a playing card (any size works from jumbo card down to regular size) . A spectator holds the card face up. He grips it firmly and does not let go until the effect is over. Nevertheless the performer turns the card face down, visibly, right in front of the spectator's eyes. Yes, the card turns over whilst the spectator is holding it. It looks quite impossible. Only one card is used and the effect is performed openly and without cover of any kind. It's a topological miracle that you...

A Lady Through and Through

David Britland

A Lady Through and Through by David BritlandTwo effects are described, both with a 'Queen gets penetrated by another card' plot. The first effect can live inside a regular deck. The second effect is a small packet trick. Both effects require some preparation, but all you need is a knife and tape. The gaffed cards are very clever allowing for beautifully visual effects.

Psychomancy

David Britland

Psychomancy by David BritlandTen wonderful mental magic effects by David Britland. Here is David in his own words:
Although my first love is Card Magic I also have a great interest in the field of mentalism. I hope that I've been able to combine both interests in the ten items described in this book. They are all designed for close-up work and require little in the way of manual dexterity. You'll discover a variety of effects from the prediction of a spectator's choice as to whether he prefers Noughts or Crosses in Tic Tac Toe to the spectacle of multiple coincidences which take place in 'My Name Is Legion'. I hope that...

Master of the Game

David Britland

Master of the Game by David BritlandMaster of the Game is an amazing poker prediction which can be performed totally impromptu, with a spectator shuffled deck and with essentially no sleight-of-hand unless you consider crimping a card sleight-of-hand.

Imagine the following. A spectator shuffles an ordinary deck, perhaps his own. The performer tells of a strange dream in which he and the spectator played a simple game of cards. Furthermore, the performer has set down the details of the dream on a slip of paper which is sealed inside and envelope. The envelope is placed on the table where it remains for the rest of the routine. ...

Tearing a Lady in Two

David Britland

Tearing a Lady in Two by David BritlandIf you like the classic Card Warp effect you will love this related but nevertheless quite different effect. And you might have seen Charlie Fry's version of this trick - Ripped & Fryed - featured on the Paul Harris True Astonishment DVDs. Now you can learn the original and get all the tips, subtleties and pointers from the creator.

Whilst you can use this effect with playing cards it works equally well with business cards. In performance you introduce the subject of the big illusions that are being performed on TV. Although you haven't brought along all your apparatus with you perhaps some young lady...

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...
