Wolfgang Riebe

15 Animated Video Logos by Wolfgang RiebeWith social media, YouTube, and mobile magic videos becoming increasingly popular, opening animated video logos for magicians are a great way to add that 'professional' touch. Here are 15 different video logos supplied in both MP4 and MOV formats complete with a 'User Licence' to include these videos in any, and all of your video productions and use on all social media platforms.

As these are high-quality custom-made logos, they would easily sell for over $20 each and thus cost in the region of $300 and more, especially with an end-user licence included. This is a limited special offer on...

Ian Baxter

Delightful by Ian BaxterThe ingenious Paul Curry, creator of 'Out Of This World' was also responsible for a number of other timely favourites - 'Open Prediction' being a standout and attracting variations a-plenty from card experts everywhere.

Ian Baxter has fashioned a particularly appealing version of this classic, written in his inimitable style and now available in an easy-to-read manuscript - totally impromptu, simple to perform, no fakes, stranger cards, or hidden accessories. Skills need are minimal. A delight indeed!

Eric Mason

Legacy by Eric Mason

The passing of a freely chosen suit of cards in numerical sequence up the sleeve, using a borrowed pack.

Profusely illustrated with more than 70 photos.

From the introduction:

As Dr. Jacob Daley remarks in his classic 'cards up the sleeve,' this effect has always been considered the acid test of the skilled performer with cards. Since the whole purpose of the creative act in magic is to further the arts involved ... I offer my own much cherished routine for this wonderful trick dedicated to the memory of Dr. Daley's devotion to a pack of cards and the numerous imaginative effects he developed with...

Will Blyth

Effective Conjuring by Will BlythFrom the introduction:
Every item has been presented by the author, not only before the general public, who may generally be relied on to give audible expressions of their likes and dislikes, but also before meetings of conjurers, where candid criticism has resulted in filling up several possible pitfalls and leaving everything fairly even and workable.

Most of my previous works on conjuring have dealt with specific subjects, such as paper, match-sticks, handkerchiefs, coins, etc. The present volume, however, contains a variety of useful effects which, if presented with due regard to the...

Hidden Gems 5 by Mark ElsdonMore excerpts from my notebooks, listing fabulous tricks that have caught my eye over the years. The first four Hidden Gems ebooks have been incredibly popular so here we are with Volume 5.

These are tricks that define the very concept of 'hidden in print'. In each entry, I list the trick, where you can find it, why I love it and why you should look it up. I always describe the effect, occasionally the presentation, but never the method. Most are in books that you already own (or should!), some are in magazines that you can easily get access to and the odd one or two entries will send you...

Hidden Gems 3 by Mark ElsdonAs previously recounted, I've been making notes and sticking Post-its in all my books for decades, so I still have hundreds of great tricks book-marked, annotated, and logged. The first two Hidden Gems ebooks proved far more popular than I could have reasonably expected, so here we are with Volume 3 and another 100 great tricks that most of us have sadly forgotten about.

These are tricks that define the very concept of 'hidden in print'. In each entry, I list the trick, where you can find it, why I love it and why you should look it up. I always describe the effect, occasionally the presentation,...
