George G. Kaplan & Warren J. Kaps

The Fine Art of Magic, 2nd Edition by George G. Kaplan & Warren J. Kaps[Note: The hardcover will currently take about 6-8 weeks to be delivered.]

Some have argued that George Kaplan's Fine Art of Magic is the best magic book ever published. Juan Tamariz, who wrote a foreword to this second edition, says: "Hardly a performance where I do not include an effect from this book. It's the only book that contains only good and excellent tricks."

This magic treatise has stood the test of time. It has become a standard magic reference work. The First Edition is one of the most sought after magic books and is now available in its Second Edition, which incorporates additions and corrections from Kaplan's own notes, as well as adds more than 25% new and...

Jean Hugard

10 Card Feats by Jean HugardVintage gold. This was Hugard's first manuscript released to the profession; originally hand-typed and sold only through him. These entertaining card effects require no apparatus and no prepared cards, making them ready to present wherever you may be: at a party, backstage, or after dinner. While the title says 10, you actually get a full dozen card miracles, moves and subtleties presented with a standard deck. Fit for the program of the most fastidious performer, yet easily within the reach of the amateur. While the author claims that no complicated moves are involved, we should note that these...

Devin Knight

Incredible Prediction by Devin KnightThis is an impressive prediction. It has fried the minds of lay people and fooled almost every magician or mentalist, I have shown this to. Many magician's say they can't fool their wives. I guarantee this is one effect she will be totally baffled by. This effect is so amazing, that you will fool yourself each time you do it wondering how such a thing is possible. Yet the effect is completely self-working with no skill or sleights.

EFFECT: Using a borrowed deck (if desired) the mentalist instructs a spectator to deal a poker hand consisting of a straight hand in a horizontal row. For example;...

Max Felmy

Max Felmy Skriptum (Skriptum Erlesener Magie VIII) by Max FelmyAus dem Vorwort von Alfini:
In diesem Büchlein hat Kammersänger Max Felmy mit großer Liebe zur Kunst hundertfach erprobte Effekte beschrieben. Man muß Max Felmy selbst erlebt haben, um ermessen zu können, wie unerhört magisch er wirkte. Seine in langjähriger Schauspiel- und Operntätigkeit an größten Bühnen erworbene Sprechkunst verband sich mit einer technisch gekonnten und absolut bühnensicheren Vorführung. Für jeden Zuschauer ein zauberhaftes Erlebnis.

Jack Yates & Ken de Courcy

Accusation by Jack Yates & Ken de CourcyFrom the introduction:
"Accusation" is a court-room drama, not exactly legal, of course, but realistic enough to cause the accused to lie and the witnesses to commit perjury! If the trick does not have impact, it will be your own doing.
The Effect: From a list of criminals a spectator mentally selects a name and, from then on, 'becomes' this person. He also selects the crimes he will be accused of in the course of the examination. He also selects one, two or three witnesses who are put in the 'witness-box'. Despite the lack of clues, the performer reveals the criminal's name and his crimes. ...

Robert A. Nelson

Mind Divination by Robert A. NelsonThe Q&A act is one that many believe is the best in mental entertainment. The excellent method described here is one that many paid over $100 to obtain . . . and thought it was a bargain at that price.

Performer passes out small cards on which spectators write their questions and sign their name. Cards are collected, placed in small envelopes and sealed. On returning to stage, the first envelope is placed to performer's forehead and answered. This envelope is then opened for verification and immediately returned to the spectator who wrote it. This continues with as many messages read as you...

Jon Racherbaumer

A Hobsonian Handbook by Jon Racherbaumer

Explorations, examples, and routines using equivoque.

Hobson's Choice: the choice of taking either what is offered or nothing else; the absence of choice. [after Thomas Hobson (1544-1631) of Cambridge, England, who rented horses and gave only one choice, that of the horse nearest the stable door]
Equivoque or Magician's Choice in its myriad of forms is considered a First Principle by students of mentalism. What fascinates me is the elusiveness of this subject because no one has yet written a definitive, synoptic, and detailed magnum opus on the subject. There have been good piecemeal accounts written here and there about and most magicians understand how it basically works in specific cases; however, trying to ferret out its...

Ringflight Modern (German) by Alexander de Cova

Ein Konzept zum Ringflight.

Ringflights gibt es viele, aber nur wenige, die so bestechend einfach und zuverlässig sind. Natürlich habe ich mir ein paar Bedingungen überlegt, die erfüllt sein sollten, wenn ich mir schon die Mühe mache, einen „neuen“ Ringflight zu ersinnen:

  1. Keine Ringzieher.
  2. Keine Daumenspitze.
  3. Das Etui sollte die ganze Zeit über auf dem Tisch liegen können.
  4. Die Routine muss im Stand-up Bereich vorführbar sein.
  5. Möglichst wenig Reset.
  6. Die Technik sollte ohne Taschenarbeit auskommen.
  7. Keine Präparationen unter der Kleidung, keine Züge oder Magnete.

Brick Tilley

The Unkindest Cut by Brick Tilley

A false cut that uses the action of burning a card as misdirection. Particularly useful for cheating at BlackJack.

Chuck Smith was recorded doing this cut. (A letter from Chuck Smith to Brick Tilley is reproduced in the PDF.) He used it to beat players during the years of WWII. The sequence of actions is the following. You first openly cut the cards and complete the cut. Then you take the top card, turn it face up and place it as the bottom card. During the action of burning the top card you undo the cut. The demo video will prove how honest and fair this looks.

Another Three To Consider by Ian BaxterAustralian card and close-up identity Ian Baxter steps forward with yet another assortment, "...three gems which he has dusted off and streamlined for your enjoyment in the pages that follow." So says David Jones in his enthusiastic introduction.

Jones continues: "As with his Five Kinks series, or his previous offering Three To Consider, Ian has once again provided us with three very entertaining card mysteries, all of which are high audience impact, but require minimal sleights."

Scarne's Certified Thought, Mark Of The Whistler, and Random Paradox all attest to Baxter's revisions.

Psyclops Mind Reading System by Tommy BurnettHere is what happens:

The performer shows his participant(s) a pack of blank index cards that have writing on one side (the other side is blank.) A different word, number and design are written on each card. The participant genuinely mixes them thoroughly and then selects one of the cards from the pack. They can remember everything on the card or just one item, it is totally a free choice. With little to no pumping you can tell them what they are thinking, duplicate a drawing, guess a pin number. Not only that, you can do this for up to 3 people at a time.

If you already own a copy of MOABT then Advancing Mother is for you. If you don't, then hopefully this will inspire you to get one for yourself.

Tommy Burnett's thinking will take you down a short but winding road towards the goal of revealing a thought of word. By using Tommy's well thought out system you no longer need to secretly discover the first letter of the word. You can get an immediate hit without asking anything and in most cases get hit after...

Test Conditions by Maurice JanssenPerformer begins by displaying a deck of cards spread face up on a table. The deck is squared up, turned face down, and handed to a willing participant. At this point the performer turns away and instructs the volunteer to cut to any card, remember their card, shuffle the cards and then spread those cards, face down in a sloppy pile. The remaining stack can be placed inside the card box. The performer turns around, concentrates for a moment and then correctly identifies their card.

Brick Tilley

Spirit Slate by Brick TilleyThe Davenport Brothers caused a sensation in the last century by seeming to contact spirits. Leaving messages on blank slates was a common method of achieving this. Flaps, magnets and switching were among the ways to achieve results. Here is your chance to reproduce this phenomenon using an ordinary craft store slate, and a piece of chalk. A blank slate is cleaned as it is shown. Yet a bold chalk message appears without any cover or false moves. A stunning effect that startles onlookers. Easy to perform.

Robert A. Nelson & Sir Edwards

Sir Edwards' $100 Horoscope Demonstration Sales Plan by Robert A. Nelson & Sir EdwardsOne of the rarest of offerings from the Nelson Enterprises catalog is this horoscope pitch act that sold for the equivalent of $1600 when first introduced. Only the wealthiest of mentalists and psychic operators would have risked this huge sum in 1942, when the plan was first offered. While the steep cover price helped guarantee exclusivity, those who put the plan to use made big money with it. Now you can, too.

In this collection of six books, electronically "bound" together as one, you'll learn Sir Edwards' proven method of selling horoscopes, booklets and lucky pieces to a willing, "off-the-street" audience. Complete...

Howard P. Albright

Unique "Thought Card" Discovery by Howard P. Albright

You reveal a freely thought card.

EFFECT: Spectator freely selects several cards from his own shuffled deck and thinks of one. Those are returned and mixed in the pack. By means of "tuned thought-waves" the performer discovers the very card spectator is thinking of and, either names it dramatically, or causes it to obey his command in a distinctly "unique" manner. A real mental mystery.

Remember:

  • No advance preparation
  • The card is really only thought
  • Free choice without any force
  • Cards can be borrowed
  • Very subtle method…you will love it.

Enzyklopädie der Rauh-Glatt Kartentricks Teil 1 (Skriptum Erlesener Magie VII) by Jochen ZmeckAus der Einleitung:
Über das Thema Rauh-Glatt sprach ich zum ersten Mal im Seminar auf dem Magierkongreß 1956 in Leipzig. Danach erschienen von mir 5 Fortsetzungsserien über dieses Thema in der Zauberkunst. Wenn die Redaktion der "Zauberkunst" und ich uns trotzdem noch entschlossen haben, ein Buch darüber herauszubringen, dann vor allem deshalb, damit über dieses interessante Gebiet einmal eine zusammenhängende Enzyklopädie vorhanden ist. Und ich kann Ihnen versprechen: Ich habe Bücher und Zeitschriften gewälzt, ich habe mit vielen Zauberfreunden im In- und Ausland korrespondiert und kann Ihnen...

Geo DeLawrence & Robert A. Nelson

Answers to Questions by Geo DeLawrence & Robert A. NelsonReveals the inside secrets for delivering informative, entertaining and sensational answers to audience questions. A "must-have" text for every mentalist and psychic entertainer.

The secret of success in doing a question and answer act lies in the performer's ability to answer the questions intelligently and to the point. The lack of this knowledge - how to answer the questions - has proven to be a major stumbling block to many performers. While not a new book on the subject, therein lies the gold. The authors' understanding of the subject was so complete and basically sound that this book...

Brick Tilley

Cut and Restored Balloon by Brick TilleyA unique effect using an ordinary balloon. The performer holds the balloon by the neck. Without any false moves he uses a pair of scissors to cut a small portion of the bottom end off. This cutting action is repeated three more times until all that remains is the neck of the mutilated balloon. Putting this to his lips, he blows into the neck. Immediately the balloon restores itself and inflates to its full size. The performer then pops the balloon using the points of the scissors, startling his audience. This can lead into a dove production if you wish.

Chris Wasshuber

Birthdate Magic Square by Chris Wasshuber

A spectator populates a row of a 4x4 square with any four numbers. You fill out the remaining 12 squares in seconds to construct a magic square. Does not require any math.

This has become my favorite impromptu magic square effect, because it is easier than a classic magic square - there is literally no math, unless you consider counting up or down by one math - and it produces a stronger effect with spectators. Thus a win-win all around.

The effect: Take any piece of paper, for example the backside of a restaurant receipt, and draw an empty 4x4 square. Then ask a spectator to fill in any...

Thomas A. Sawyer

Professor Hoffmann and his Conjuring Serials of 1872-1888 by Thomas A. SawyerThis is the first digital-edition of Thomas A. Sawyer's Professor Hoffmann and His Conjuring Serials of 1872-1888. The first printing was a softcover printed book, published in late 2016. That printing consisted of less than 60 copies, so the book is not in wide circulation, and in fact even its existence is not well known.

What is there about the contents of the book that could make it well worthwhile?

Chapter 1 is called "Angelo Lewis in Perspective." That chapter is an overview of Professor Hoffmann. It alludes to several of Hoffmann's books, inside and outside of magic, that can be considered classics. ...

Matteo Filippini

Homing Card by Matteo Filippini

Matteo Filippini presents his personal study on the Francis Carlyle Homing Card.

Starting from the splendid Carlyle version, which appeared on the historical Stars Of Magic, through Roberto Giobbi's Homing Card Plus, from the second volume of Card College, Matteo offers his vision on this great card magic effect.

The Homing Card is certainly one of the few effects with playing cards that are well suited to different situations: close-up, parlour, TV, theatre...

The routine has been divided into several phases and analyzed down to the smallest detail. In addition some historical notes and a rich bibliography.

Doan

Bandual by Doan
"WTF, some witchcraft?? I can't figure it out. Amazing!!" - Mario Tarasini
My name is Doan and here is a new effect with rubber bands. Imagine you just have one rubber band which you instantly turn into two rubber bands. A flash duplication of a rubber band. Everything is done in front of your spectator's eyes. Or, you can also do a very cool and visual rubber band color change effect.
  • No gimmick used
  • Do with any size (within reason) rubber band
  • Watch your angles. This looks great from certain directions, but you are exposed from others. Certainly not a trick to be done surrounded. ...
