Encyclopedia of Sleeving by Jack Chanin

Excerpt from the foreword by Paul Rosini:

His book on the 3-Shell Game is a classic - but his new one on sleeving is superb. You may benefit from the many years that it has taken Jack to compile and simplify the different tricks in the art of sleeving. It is unbelievable how clean you can do a trick with his new methods, if used moderately.

Sleeving to me is one of my most valuable assets. As you well know, practical magic is what counts, and I have always found it my magical exploits that sleeving has been very practical. In fact, many well known magicians at conventions have passed numerous favorable comments on my sleeving ability, saying they never thought it could be used to such great advantage.

It is with this thought in mind, that I place this book before you bringing to you many things in the art of sleeving that were gained by myself only through years of practical experience. I am sure that when you learn the secrets described here, you will have gained a wealth of knowledge that you will never forget and always use.
