Keep Calm I Do IMC 42

Patrik Kuffs

Keep Calm I Do IMC 42 by Patrik KuffsThese are Patrik's lecture notes for the International Magic Convention held in London, England, 2013. It includes a Foreword by David Acer. Note that there is some overlap in contents with Toronto Kufference 2011.

Lazy Malini
Ever since the very first time I saw David Copperfield perform a "newspaper card stab" in the movie Terror Train, I've considered the card stab revelation to be one of the more seductive presentation in magic as far as card tricks go. (Not quite as seductive as Jamie Lee Curtis in her prime, but close enough to make me watch that movie.) Many great versions have been shared and published...

Mainly Manipulative Magic

John Alborough

Mainly Manipulative Magic by John AlboroughFrom the introduction by Lewis Ganson:
Seeing the late Edward Victor on stage at the now defunct Metropolitan Theatre in Edgware Road, London, when John was a small boy, started his interest in magic. Later he became enamoured with the manipulative magic of Geoffrey Buckingham, so it is not surprising that Victor's expert thimble magic and Buckingham’s excellent manipulation of billiard balls, should have had a marked influence on the type of magic John performs. Having met and enjoyed the confidence of these two magicians and studied their books, he built his own act. Certainly the Victor / Buckingham influence is there...

Sleightly Cerebral 1

Nick Conticello

Sleightly Cerebral 1 by Nick ConticelloNick Conticello is proud to celebrate the fourth anniversary of his debut here at Lybrary.com with the release of the first ebook of a new series, Sleightly Cerebral. This first book is devoted to a rethinking of the classic Do-As-I-Do card effect.

From the Foreword:

Welcome to the first episode of a new series, Sleightly Cerebral. As you might surmise from the crude humor of the title, these books will explain effects that employ sleight-of-hand, while continuing the vision of the material in The Cerebral Approach. Generally each volume will explore one or two simple but under-utilized sleights while frequently...

Interactive Matrix Formula

Dave Arch

Interactive Matrix Formula by Dave ArchNo doubt you've seen this formula applied to magic tricks on television specials or internet websites where you've been encouraged to put your finger on any card showing on the screen. Then as you follow the magician's series of instructions - moving your finger from card to adjacent card (with a sense of free choice), the magician begins to inexplicably remove cards on which your finger isn't resting until only one clearly predetermined card remains.

Although the formula has been used for decades as the basis for creating variously themed magic tricks (from comedy to the bizarre), the sharing...

1089 Refreshed and Reloaded

Unknown Mentalist

1089 Refreshed and Reloaded by Unknown MentalistThis is an introductory price and will go up to $12 on Oct 1, 2018.

There would hardly be any mentalist or magician who would not be familiar with the old and well known 1089 force. At the same time, there would also hardly be any mentalist or magician who still uses this force in the old standard manner. In that sense this force seems dated.

But throughout the history of magic, this unique force has been extremely fascinating both mathematically and magically.

Here are some fresh and novel ideas related to this force which you can actually go out and use right today. There are 6 different...

Shadowsight

Kevin Parker

Shadowsight by Kevin ParkerLook into a deck without looking.

While your back is turned, spectator deals cards off a deck that they shuffled while you wait for them to reach a card that you 'sense' might be near their card. Then they are to deal a few cards from that spot onto the table side by side and they are to hover their hand over each one - your back still turned - while you tell them to slam their hand on a certain one. It is their card.

A few points to consider:

  • They have a free selection of card; no force or psy-forces.
  • You never touch their card, not before, during, or after they pick it. You never...

T-Formation

J. G. Thompson Jr.

T-Formation by J. G. Thompson Jr.J. G. Thompson, Jr's fabulous master-key to card control.

From the introduction by B. W. McCarron, "T-Formation (TF) is a monograph of card sleights that are not at all difficult for the average performer; yet they allow a nice range of performance possibilities. Forces, controls, peeks and even the versatile double lift are all given the 'Thompson treatment.' "

T-Formation teaches the average magician or mentalist an assortment of maneuvers with cards that are easy to execute but full of deceptiveness. In the author's words, T-Formation "enables the performer, with a minimum of effort, to perform...

Quick Hypnotic Tricks

Stewart James

Quick Hypnotic Tricks by Stewart JamesThis ebook contains twelve extraordinary, pseudo-hypnotic tricks that can be performed with sensational results by anyone.

Not true hypnotism, which requires long practice and frequently fails, but cleverly disguised natural principles that are little known. One of the most unusual collections of odd information ever assembled. So-called instantaneous hypnotic methods that depend on applying pressure to certain nerve centers to create temporary paralysis are strictly avoided in these instructions.

This series of science-baffling effects appear to be contrary to all natural laws. Deemed...

Toronto Kufference 2011

Patrik Kuffs

Toronto Kufference 2011 by Patrik KuffsVery First - Impression
This routine is meant to be as an opener. After some research, it appears that the clever Michael Weber has flirted with a very similar idea. He used the idea as a closer, while I offer here the idea as an opener. Note that the underlying principle behind this method has, inevitably, been alluded to in one form or another by Marlo and/or Vernon, or is buried within Tarbell.

Poor Man's EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) by Dave ArchPrice will go up to $15 after Halloween.

Finally a cost-effective method for establishing ambience in the candlelit seance room by recording the proceedings and having them unexpectedly interrupted by a series of unintelligible guttural sounds.

Finally a routine that doesn't break the flow of the seance routine while the medium and the sitters make sense of the fully customizable sounds.

Based on an idea from Bob Cassidy, this video tutorial finally visually demonstrates step-by-step how to leverage the power of a free user-friendly laptop app (Windows/Mac Os/Unix) to achieve the above and...

Camouflage

Gerard Zitta

Camouflage by Gerard Zitta"Hidden": A secret hidden in most decks of cards. You already have it. It can be used for magic or mentalism effects as it will add something "bizarre" or intriguing to your card tricks. Or as a double kicker. YOu will use it in your existing routines or invent new ones. Guaranteed. A typical example is "The Fine Print" by Jay Sankey. The difference is that you can do it impromptu, without buying a gimmick, and with some touch of mentalism.

"You remove a playing card from a deck of cards and leave it face down on the table as a prediction. A spectator then selects a card from the deck, but...

Abhinav Bothra

Timeline by Abhinav BothraTimeline is a 3 minute short, scripted and theatrical close-up act using a borrowed deck of playing cards.

With only 2 basic sleights and your script you're able to make people feel that they're watching an expert at work. You tell a short essay on time and magic happens almost by itself while the essay is being narrated.

Each action and revelation is perfectly supported by the script. Here are the opening lines - "If there is one thing no-one can escape from – it is time. In fact even if you go out into the space or deep under water, you’re still dominated by time because your oxygen...

Void

Steven Palmer

Void by Steven PalmerImagine having a deck of cards completely mixed by a spectator, then having them simply look at and remembering a card from the deck they just mixed. The deck is returned to the box and through a process of visualisation, the card is revealed by the performer.

With Void, this is a reality. Imagine having the power of a mind power deck but with a normal deck of cards.

Story:

Void is my definitive work on the thought-of card plot. Building on ideas first set out in my debut book Method, the routines and handling have been taken and pushed to explore every avenue of what can be achieved...

Santa's Magical Lump of Coal

Roy Eidem

Santa's Magical Lump of Coal by Roy EidemA magic wand disappears and re-appears. Then suddenly a lump of coal magically appears. The lump of coal disappears and re-appears three times and on the third complete disappearance it jumps into the pocket. Then the lump of coal multiplies into two lumps of coal, then it multiplies into three lumps of coal. To simplify spectator observation, two lumps of coal are removed and the last lump of coal is squeezed tightly in the hand causing the coal to change "under pressure" into a diamond which is given to the lady as a gift.

Gypsy Eradication Ritual

Gypsy Eradication Ritual by Dave ArchJust in time for your Halloween shows. While the rest of the group stands in a circle reading in unison the ritual instructions printed on what appears to be an aged piece of parchment paper, the person who'll be receiving the benefits of the ritual sits at a small table in the center of the circle with a piece of paper, matches, pen, candle, and plate. As that person follows the instructions being read by the group, the ritual unfolds - working itself. The only suggestion is to collect the ritual instruction sheets at the end of the ceremony to keep the mystery in the experience - preventing...

Scripted #22: vanishing figure 8 knot

Larry Brodahl

Scripted #22: vanishing figure 8 knot by Larry BrodahlEveryone probably knows how to vanish an overhand knot, or even a Chefalo knot. But how many know how to vanish a figure 8 knot?

How to tie a true figure 8 knot as well as the false figure 8 knot are both shown and are virtually identical. The script provided shows how it can stand on it's own, but it would also fit nicely into a routine with knots. An audience member can even help you tie the knot, and they'll be none the wiser.

Best of all, it's free.
