[Books (printed)]

We are known for our ebooks. However, through various deals and acquisitions we have gotten hold of a good amount of printed books which we are offering here in this category until our stock is exhausted.

These are not second hand items. They are new, sometimes still shrink wrapped, ready to be retailed. The pricing largely reflects the amount of books we have left as well as the exclusivity and quality of the contents in them. I am sure you will find a number of incredible deals here.

We also do print some of our ebooks and those will not so quickly vanish from our catalog. But it might very well be the case that at some point we decide to discontinue the printed version and only offer the digital one. Don't wait too long if you want the printed version.

Amazing Unfaked Book Test

Val Andrews

Amazing Unfaked Book Test by Val Andrews
"A brilliant and versatile principle that has stood the test of time." Ian Rowland
This is an unbelievable book test. Just imagine taking a modern book; perhaps a best seller in the bookshops right now. The book is genuine and is completely unfaked in any way. You can even ask a member of the audience or perhaps someone on a radio show that you will be talking to, to bring along a copy of the Da Vinci Code or whatever you choose to use. Or you could do this impromptu with any book as long as you have a couple of minutes private time with the book.

You have the book examined and you ask...

The Master Key: book test

Terri Rogers

The Master Key: book test by Terri RogersThis is probably the finest book test using special books that has ever been released.

This is a remarkable set of three books which allow you to do four different book tests:

And if that is not enough The Master Key is so cleverly constructed that you can immediately repeat it for the same audience. It took Terri Rogers several years to create this book test.

The Master Key book test runs like this: A spectator has a completely free choice of any of the three different books. Then they can also...

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 produced hardback book 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...

Quarks and Quirks

(Benny) Ben Harris

Quarks and Quirks by (Benny) Ben Harris
"Some of the most clever takes on the Torn and Restored Card in years, Ben Harris' Quarks & Quirks is an invigorating journey of topological twists and tears." - Richard Kaufman
A journey beyond the tear, inspired by the weird world of Quantum Physics. In this superbly produced book, filled with photographs Ben Harris shares seven routines. Includes:

THE QUARTER BACK TEAR

A method for apparently tearing a card cleanly in half, while in reality, only tearing one quarter from the card. This sets you up as either a "quarter ahead" or a "quarter behind" depending upon the intended application....

Exit 51

(Benny) Ben Harris

Exit 51 by (Benny) Ben Harris
"A beautifully realized moment of astonishment ... the new gimmick is very clever indeed!" - Paul Harris

"A stunning vanishing deck that takes an original idea by Paul Harris and sends it to the moon." - Richard Kaufman

The remarkable effect shifts "the moment" in Paul Harris' amazing Vanishing Deck allowing for a card to be selected and signed.

This selected card is shuffled back into the deck which is then held in full view.

Upon command, the entire deck visually vanishes (that's right - it just blinks out of being) leaving only the chosen card as a poignant applause cue.

Exit 51 is...

The Robert Harbin Book

Robert Harbin

The Robert Harbin Book by Robert HarbinBack in the 1970s Martin Breese had the chance to record Robert Harbin on one of his early Magicassette releases. The Harbin Magicassette probably rates as the most popular of his recordings.

In 1983 Martin asked the late Owen Griffith to transcribe the words from the Harbin Magicassette. The late and great Eric Mason created the illustrations for The Harbin Book. One day at a business trade fair Martin saw a full scale photo litho printing machine being demonstrated and decided to leap in to the deep end and he bought the demonstration machine and had it transported by a lorry and about eight strong guys to the Magic Lounge...

Close-up Framework

Lawrence Frame

Close-up Framework by Lawrence FrameA small book that's big on entertainment. Clean, novel methods are used to produce effects that are clear and uncluttered. Taking as an example the first effect in the book, 'Spellbound Climax': you show a 2p coin and magically transform it into a 10p. After repeating this a couple of times you are surprised to find that the coin has changed into a button! Looking down, you discover that the coin is attached to your jacket where the button should be.

To paraphrase Gordon Bruce's introduction, these aren't just tricks but lessons in presentation.

With illustrations by Roy Johnson.

Artifice, Ruse & Erdnase

Hurt McDermott

Artifice, Ruse & Erdnase by Hurt McDermott
"Frankly, I find your approach the most careful and cautious of all that have been published." - Bart Whaley

"Hurt's book is very good writing on a subject I care about. I enjoyed it tremendously and learned a great deal in the process. I think you will, too." - Richard Hatch

The search for one who may not want to be found.

In 1902 under the pseudonym S.W. Erdnase and the title Artifice, Ruse and Subterfuge at the Card Table a book on sleight-of-hand with cards was published. This book became the bible for card magicians. To this date it remains arguably the single most important book on sleight-of-hand card magic. Some of the most respected masters of card magic,...
