Giacomo Bertini

European Coin Magic Symposium Volume 4 by Giacomo BertiniGIACOMO BERTINI: "Cylinder & Chips"
This is his easy version of the famous coin routine. Giacomo uses poker chips instead of coins and his own gimmick, which you can buy from him. He created this routine for professional use, such as when working at event dinners, and in any difficult situation, anywhere. The effect is amazing, like the classical version, but in this case the routine is really easy to perform, and the hands are really empty, in front of the spectators. Very beautiful routine for stand-up workers. Beginner level.

This is a wonderful version of the classic...

Robert Walker & Jon Racherbaumer

Avatar by Robert Walker & Jon RacherbaumerRobert Walker was a unicycling, high-school student. Looking five years younger than he was, he was a dyed-in-the-wool card guy tutored in Marlovian ways. He was also a precocious writer-creator, obsessed with false counts and packet tricks. He spent many hours "twisting the night away," taking voluminous notes, and developing new methods and approaches. His first mini-treatise dissected a marketed packet trick by Larry West ("Wild, Wild West") which he passed onto Jon Racherbaumer to publish. It became the second installment of the loose-leaf Avatar, printed on pink paper and unadorned by illustrations...

The Psychic Pencil by George Ernest Arrowsmith

A seemingly "impossible" book test.

George Arrowsmith wrote:

A worthwhile exercise for a Mentalist is to set himself a problem that seems unsolvable and to wrestle with it, and to go on wrestling until a possible (and practical) solution is found. "All things are possible to him who keeps on trying" …

Here, then, is such a problem that occurred to the author. A word had to be chosen from a book, one of several, and all of them had to be genuine and unfaked in any way. The word was to be freely selected from any line on any page of the book. This word had to be encircled by the pencil...

Sultan Orazaly

Stars Prediction by Sultan Orazaly

Visual movement of holes on a playing card.

Show a playing card which has random holes in it. This is best done by putting it in front of a light source, such as your phone's screen. In an instant the holes rearrange to something meaningful. It could be a simple image, the name of a card, a spectator name, a date, anything you can think of. It is a great way to reveal a prediction.

Albert M. Wilson & F. T. Singleton

Magic the Magazine of Wonder by Albert M. Wilson & F. T. SingletonThe magazine presented magic and allied subjects to the general public with a strong leaning towards the entertainment and recreational side rather than the scientific or philosophical. It stated in its first issue:
The object of this magazine is NOT to expose the worlds' best tricks, nor give away the darling secrets of clever professional and amateur magicians. MAGIC is intended to create a wider and more intelligent interest in a most attractive subject - to make more appreciative audiences for magical entertainers, and new devotees of a fascinating hobby.

Bob Farmer

The Red Prediction by Bob FarmerIn August of 1963, Dai Vernon took a twenty-hour bus trip from Los Angeles to Dallas, Texas, to deliver a lecture at the Statler Hilton Hotel.

The Dallas Statler Hilton 1963

On the way there, Vernon created an amazing effect, an effect that is relatively unknown, even today. Shortly thereafter, Vernon advertised the trick for sale.

From the fertile brain of Mr. Dai Vernon comes a MENTAL STUNNER! Here are the facts. Imagine this effect and the IMPACT ON THE AUDIENCE!

The performer displays several cards face up and deals them in a random manner on the table top, some face up, some face down. NOW he gives a spectator an...

Kent Gunn

There and Back Again by Kent GunnA story trick is one of the best effects one can do for lay people. See for example, Bill Malone's success with "Sam the Bellhop". Kent Gunn has altered the recipe of the story trick by adding a couple of card tricks in the middle of the story, which adds a new twist to the genre. Kent feels that it is is the best-received piece he has ever come up with. He also provides advice on how to come up with your own story, which ultimately is the best way to go.

George Blake

The Perfected Five Card Trick by George BlakeThis ebook teaches solutions to the following problem Rusduck posed in the late 1950s:
Any deck used. Any five cards taken from it by a spectator, and any one of the five cards is set aside. The performer calls out the other four cards to an assistant in another room or to someone on the phone, and immediately the chosen card is named.
These are very similar requirements to the Fitch Cheney Five-Card Trick. But they are not identical. In the Fitch Cheney trick the performer selects the one card out of the five given to him which his assistant needs to identify from the knowledge of the other four cards. In the Rusduck version...
