Eric Hawkesworth
Making a Shadowgraph Show by Eric Hawkesworth

Some simple hand movements, a linen screen, and a battery-operated projection light are the basic ingredients of an ideal home entertainment. Once learned, all the primary hand shadow effects can be easily adapted to create other figures and characters. These can be still further varied by the use of cardboard cut-out accessories, making possible a whole new range of effects whereby a dachshund can quickly become a crocodile, and a pop-singer change to a policeman.

The author explains, with the help of diagrams, how to make and operate a shadowgraph screen. He describes the basic hand formations,...

Edwin Hooper
Edwin the Supreme Magician by Edwin Hooper

This is the story of Edwin, told in his own words and recorded by Martin Breese at the Supreme Magic Headquarters in Devon in the late 1970s.

Ian Adair, who provides a 10 min introduction before the interview with Edwin starts, wrote:

Edwin Hooper was a remarkable man. And when I say he spent a lifetime in magic, I really mean that. Day by day, hour by hour he was solely devoted to magic and magicians. He lived for magic. He loved performing and he loved creating magic. He thrilled at manufacturing magical equipment but, like us all, he had his likes and dislikes. Edwin really enjoyed his food....

Peter Mennie
Sound Advice for Magicians by Peter Mennie

Let's face it, once you step in front of an audience you not only have to be seen, but you have to be heard. And just like the sleight of hand in your show has to be the best it can be, the sound has to be the best it can be as well. Your audiences deserve better than 'it's good enough'.

Sound Advice For Magicians was written out of a lecture I do for magic clubs and clown alleys because I saw too many talented performers bomb in front of audiences because their sound system failed or the people running them were incompetent. In addition to performing full-time for over 40 years (with many...

Ian Baxter
Baxter's Ambitious Card by Ian Baxter

A treasured classic in anyone's language, "The Ambitious Card" absolutely runs rings around most other card effects. Of the versions in print, a few too many are on the difficult side, but not this one.

Ian Baxter has finally released his extraordinary version - a streamlined, baffling approach that he has used for decades. And the best part of this? It is, as you might guess, straightforward and undemanding. No more than basic card skills are required ... Hindu Shuffle, Overhand Shuffle, Double Lift, Bluff Pass, very little else. Guaranteed to please!

Ken Muller
Grandma Choice by Ken Muller

A small group mentalism demonstration.

This is a telepathy acuity test for 4-6 participants using colored stones, buttons, dominoes, or any objects of distinct identity. An ideal routine to acquaint spectators with mentalism and telepathic possibilities, leading to more profound experiments.

You orchestrate a demonstration of latent paranormal abilities using simple objects and an innocent random selection process. All participants test their ability in making intuitive guesses as to the location of hidden objects. The results are better than chance and usually very astonishing/profound....

Peter Pellikaan
Twisting 2 by Peter Pellikaan

You show four nine of hearts face up. Count them again and one has turned face down showing a red back. Count them again and a grey-colored back is showing. Then a gold-colored back. When the fourth turns over, and reveals a green back, all cards are now face down showing four different backs. Then you turn them face up and they are now all queen of spades. You can go again through the same sequence as before, where one card at a time turns face down showing four different backs. The climax is that at the end all four faces have changed to aces.

It is hard to imagine more color changes mixed...

Felipe Suau
Poker Royal by Felipe Suau

An extraordinary magic trick in which the spectators will see four jacks turn face down one by one. For the final climax, the magician explains that sometimes, if poker cards are used for magic, very strange things can happen: That's when the four jacks suddenly turn into a Royal Flush. A trick with which I bluffed the audience and magicians. All you need is a special card, which is very easy to find. But this little effort is really worth it.

An impromptu version of the effect is also described, in which the cards from Ace to Four, one at a time, turn face down and then magically transform...

Then you fan the remaining four cards and all the blank faces have changed to a royal flush, an ace, king, queen, and jack. The ten completing the royal flush. As a final climax all cards are turned face down and they all have different colored backs.

Ralph Mayer
Short Changed by Ralph Mayer

A terrific audience participation effect about a famous carnival and con artist swindle. Audiences love tricks with money. They also love to learn about swindles and cons, in order to protect themselves. This effect provides both: entertainment and a lesson.

In this clever routine, you demonstrate how easy it is to swindle the victim out of $10 for a $1 purchase. Not just a trick, but an actual scam that fleeces thousands of people every day. Don't you be one of them!

And, only in this updated edition, we supply camera-ready master images of stage bills that you can use for the effect....

Dibya Guha
Hitchcocked by Dibya Guha

Hitchcocked is a collection of two fun-filled mentalism pieces based on the famous movies of Hitchcock. These effects are real-world workers and have been perfected through tons of performances. The 2 effects in this PDF are:

  1. Ring and Rope Prelude: A great prelude to your ring & rope routine based on Hitchcock.
  2. Hitchcock Prediction: A comedy Prediction routine wherein the prediction of a Hitchcock movie apparently turns out to be a gag. However, the performer proves that he had indeed been able to forecast the spectator's thought well in advance, in a most humorous manner.

Unknown Mentalist
Deckless Oncemore by Unknown Mentalist

A classic principle. Some new innovative applications. The result is some cool card mentalism effects. 4 main effects and 2 bonus effects are explained. The main effects are all deckless card mentalism effects, where a physical deck of cards is not used. The bonus effects are for those who want to use a physical deck of cards, anyways.

The underlying theme is that of either predicting or divining a card mentally chosen by a participant. The methods are self-working, easy to learn, and a pleasure to perform. You can in fact forget about the method and focus fully on your presentation. There...

The Mind Reader by Edward Bagshawe

Print and Perform.

One of the advantages of the following effect lies in its absurd simplicity of operation. Quite a change from some of the "mentally selected" card effects you may have run across.

Briefly, the effect can be stated as follows. A sealed envelope is first given into the keeping of a member of the audience. Two printed slips of paper (ready to print for you), each bearing the names of cards, are given to a second spectator, who is asked to examine them and note that the names of all the fifty-two cards have been listed upon them. The spectator mentally selects one of the...

In 1966, Giovanni Iuliani presented 5 major freak phenomena alive on a high elevated stage at two Montreal movie houses. These high attendance halls each featured on their giant screen the classic horror...

How Time Flies by Brick Tilley

A dollar bill to impossible location effect that incorporates the timeless Buddha Money Papers. The noted bill vanishes from the papers only to reappear inside a pocket watch case that has been in full view the entire time.

Included here possibly for the first time is the fool-proof method for preparing two bills so that they bear the same serial numbers. This is not the inferior dodge of erasing the last digits on the bill. These bills utilize the entire serial number.

Queens 2 by Peter Pellikaan

You show four queens. The two black queens are placed on the table, the two red queens are retained in the hands. But despite this separation, they change places and the red queens are now on the table and the black queens are in the hands. The next phase is a little 'oil and water' sequence where the queens are mixed black, red, black, red but quickly separate themselves again into two black and two red queens. The startling climax is that all four cards change their back colors.
