Le Banconote di Fred Kaps

Fred Kaps

Le Banconote di Fred Kaps by Fred KapsIl gioco delle 11 carte di Edward Victor eseguito con delle banconote da un dollaro.

I dettagli ed il metodo segreto di questa routine sono stati tenuti segreti fin dai giorni di Fred Kaps; prima di allora era stata solamente divulgata ad un manipolo di amici e, occasionalmente, spiegata da Fred Kaps solo a performer seri come Trevor Lewis, il quale aveva elaborato una propria routine, guardando Fred Kaps, ancor prima di incontrarlo. In seguito la routine originale venne indipendentemente sviluppata, cambiata ed adattata da Trevor, Mike Caveney, Peter Pit, Ger Copper ed altri ben noti artisti,...

Fred Kaps' Purse

Fred Kaps

Fred Kaps' Purse by Fred KapsFrom a manuscript written by Fred Kaps.

The descriptions are almost entirely Fred Kaps' own, taken from the manuscripts in his handwriting. Changes of words or grammar have only been made where the meaning could have been in doubt had Fred's terminology been used. Fred Kaps' Purse uses techniques by Fred Kaps, fully explained and illustrated with original photographs.

INTRODUCTION By Fred Kaps

This is one of my pet effects that I practically always carry with me because I can do the routine anytime, anywhere, without any set-up.

The effect is: you show an elegant little purse frame...

Fred Kaps' Currency

Fred Kaps

Fred Kaps' Currency by Fred KapsEdward Victor's 11 Card Trick done with Collar Bills.

The details and inner working of this routine have been kept secret since the days of Fred Kaps; before then it was only divulged to a handful of very close friends, and occasionally discussed by Fred Kaps with serious performers. Subsequently the original routine has been independently developed, changed and adapted by Trevor Lewis, Mike Caveney, Peter Pit, Ger Copper and other well-known performers to suit their own individual styles.

The transcript of the manuscript in Fred Kaps' handwriting has only been very slightly edited. It is substantially the routine...

Fred Kaps' Cups and Balls

Trevor Lewis & Fred Kaps

Fred Kaps' Cups and Balls by Trevor Lewis & Fred KapsAs taught by Fred Kaps to Trevor Lewis.
"This Cups and Balls routine has several Vernon touches; but there are alternative strategies which are truly outstanding and characteristic of the master, Fred Kaps." - Trevor Lewis
The warm, bright Mediterranean sunshine and Phillipe Fialho's delightful villa looking down on Nice in the French Riviera was the setting for Fred Kaps to teach Trevor Lewis his Cups and Balls routine and generously tell Trevor he could do what he liked with it. Trevor had a video of Fred performing the routine and had written it up in rough notes.

Fred Kaps Lecture - It's So Simple

Fred Kaps

Fred Kaps Lecture - It's So Simple by Fred KapsBack in 1965 Fred Kaps gave a landmark lecture at the Magic Circle and now this lecture is available as MP3 download including a PDF which is a transcription of the lecture with additional illustrations. Bearing in mind Fred Kaps' reputation, it is strange that so little has been written about the man and his methods. Just the first ten minutes of this recording holds a fundamentally important lesson every serious student of magic needs to know.

Other than several magazine contributions, little of Fred Kaps' work exists in the English language. There are two sets of lecture notes, one dealing...
