Ian Baxter
Three Favourites by Ian Baxter

Stewart Judah was one of the twentieth century's most celebrated card experts, contributing to that classic text Greater Magic as one of the famed 'Card Stars Of The U.S.A.' and winning accolades from experts everywhere. Author John Northern Hilliard wrote "I would rather see him do a card trick than go to a convention." Such was his reputation.

In this new manuscript, author Ian Baxter shares his version of a Judah favourite, Not Your Card? - with the level of astonishment fully intact, but offering an approach that is far better suited to the close-up table.

Moving The Aces is Baxter's latest handling for that classic...

SpyCat Wallet by Mark Stone

Turn a $10 modern, minimalist wallet into a devastating first-class peek device, and instantly read the spectator's mind.

Everyday use wallets have become smaller and smaller over the years because we have changed from a mostly cash society to a mostly 'plastic money' society. This means a typical wallet today only needs to hold a few credit cards and a driver's license and thus it is much smaller than the wallets of days past. This completely normal-looking peek wallet is small and thin. Purchase it for about $10 and then modify it to turn it into a deceptive peek wallet in a few minutes. ...

I have written this work not as an exposure of the art of Conjuring and Magic, but simply to act as a guide for amateurs and young beginners; therefore I shall enumerate many tricks and illusions that my young friends can perform at home amongst their numerous friends. In addition to this, I shall also enumerate those tricks and illusions which demand a larger amount of room, and also require specially constructed apparatus; such tricks the amateur would do well not to attempt, as they are only suitable for performance on a stage.

Despite this, if you are familiar with the Faro shuffle this is the effect for you.

Effect: The magician places a prediction card on the table indicating his lucky number. The spectator thinks of a number from one to ten, cuts the deck in two, and takes a number of cards equal to the...

Remote Close Up 6 by Renzo Grosso

Numbers have tremendous power. They rule life and the universe. There is no living being, molecule, event, evolution that cannot be described with an algorithm, a mathematical formula. Numbers, everywhere. From the speed of light to the circumference of the earth, to the inhabitants of the world, to the ATM pin. And then your lucky number, the number of destiny, bad luck, infinity ...

In my methodical (and obstinate) search for effects to be proposed on the phone, numbers are the absolute protagonist. Except for a few small tricks, they are all a consequence of one or more mathematical...

I numeri hanno un potere tremendo! Governano la vita e l’universo! Non c’è essere vivente, molecola, avvenimento, evoluzione che non possano essere descritti con un algoritmo, una formula matematica! Numeri, dappertutto! Dalla velocità della luce alla circonferenza della terra, agli abitanti del mondo, al pin del bancomat! E poi il tuo numero fortunato, il numero del destino, la sfortuna, l’infinito…

Brick Tilley
Hofzinser Ghost Card by Brick Tilley

A modern version of this classic gaffed card. Detailed are the two methods: splitting cards and printing them yourself to achieve this mysterious effect. Included is a self-printed example. This card has a matte finish that is enhanced by the candlelight used to effect the transformation. This is a remarkable illusion that takes no skill and differs greatly from Hofzinser's original construction. As seen in the video, the image seems to melt from one card value to another. Simple in construction.

But you can surely come up with many of your own routines using this beautiful force.

The actual process to force is very fast and direct. Maybe, depending on your presentation, it may take all of fifteen seconds to perform the force. Or you can stretch it for as long as you...

Scripted #35: Picto Transpo by Larry Brodahl

The trick PictoTranspo by Gene Anderson is a wonderful reframing of a Roy Johnson trick. In the trick, two large pictures - one drawn by the volunteer - swap places, even though the pictures are marked on the back with the volunteer's and magician's names.

A logical and funny script is included that covers why the trick is being done, and even allows you to pick any volunteer.

Note: This trick is not fully explained. You must own the trick to be able to perform it.
