Archives of Human Prodigies 2 by Giovanni Iuliani

Freaks, strange people, monsters, and even prodigies are some of the words used to describe the human beings that you will find in this ebook. While we realize that today many of these words might be considered "politically incorrect" we have taken the liberty of using these terms insofar as to better communicate the mindset of the sideshow people of that era. No disrespect is intended.

At the time, sideshows went by many different names, among these: dime museums of one kind or another and tent attractions, fronted by huge banners, depicting very unusual people and or animals. Curiosities...

Giovanni Iuliani
Archives of Human Prodigies 1 by Giovanni Iuliani

There once was a dream world that travelled at night on a train full of possibilities. This was the Golden Age of the circus (1880-1930s). Aboard this magical train, you would find circus performers, a menagerie of exotic animals and those known as "freaks".

Also called human prodigies, the "freaks" were born with special physicalities. Among these were giants, midgets, siamese-twins, etc. All were gathered inside a giant tent known as the sideshow (or annex attraction).

Get ready to see many astonishing if not shocking pictures. The Archives of Human Prodigies is published in three...

Arcane Tarot Stories by Renzo Grosso

"Tarot is a deck of cards but the Tarot represents a person. We are the Tarot and we use the Tarot because we live." (Andrea Mecchia)

I don't know if it happens to you too ... when I particularly love a project, I start to collect elements, I work on it a bit, but it always seems that something is missing ... you leave and resume the project, but that something is always missing ... then, one day, it arrives like that in one fell swoop, and makes everything good.

This is the story of this project, which I finally want to share, with the hope that it will also satisfy your desire to present...

Arcane Stories di Tarocchi by Renzo Grosso

"I tarocchi sono un mazzo di carte ma Il Tarocco rappresenta una persona. Noi siamo il Tarocco e noi usiamo i tarocchi, perché noi viviamo." (Andrea Mecchia)

Non so se accade anche a voi ... quando amo particolarmente un progetto, incomincio a raccogliere elementi, ci lavoro un po', ma sembra sempre che manchi qualcosa... lasci e riprendi il progetto, ma manca sempre quel qualcosa ... poi, un giorno, arriva l'illuminazione che, in un colpo solo, fa quadrare il tutto!

Questa è la storia di questo progetto, che voglio finalmente condividere, con la speranza che soddisfi anche la Vostra...

Jon Racherbaumer
Twixt by Jon Racherbaumer

Reviving "Between the Palms" one of Alex Elmsley's most offbeat plots. This is sort of a "locked room" mystery with playing cards.

It is an offbeat plot because the implicit aspects of effect, particularly its climax, are not immediately understood or appreciated. Yet the effect still has an emotional impact. Compared to other card tricks being done in 1952 it was very different. (Perhaps its closest cousins may be Fred Braue's "The Prechosen Chosen Card" from The Gen (February 1962) or Brother John Hamman's "Signed Card.")

Effect: The performer removes a card from the deck and, without showing its face, places it between...

Wolfgang Riebe
Mirror Cards by Wolfgang Riebe

3 cards are shown and a joker is openly placed in various places amongst the cards, for example on top, in the middle, and at the bottom. Magically the joker always returns to its original position. The audience soon suspects that 3 identical cards are being used, and at one point even see 3 jokers. Eventually the magician admits that he has 3 identical cards and suddenly all 3 cards change to mirrors. 3 identical mirrors and no jokers anywhere! Isn't that how most tricks work? With mirrors?

This is a snappy, fun, and magical routine with a tremendous unexpected, surprise ending. You learn...

Ian Baxter
Rapid Double Reverse by Ian Baxter

Now, Australian card man Ian Baxter steps forward with a brand-new approach that will knock your socks off. Two cards chosen, one by spectator, another by the performer, then in the blink of an eye they both reverse in the deck. But here is the cruncher: Baxter's handling allows the effect to be presented, believe it or not, in well under one minute! Not be missed and a bargain at just $4.00.

Ken Muller
Snap Rope by Ken Muller

A unique cut and restored rope effect.

  • no weird loop in the hand - just cut the rope in the center as a layperson would
  • both cut ends are shown separately and apart
  • no knots or fumbling
  • the rope is snapped like a whip and is fully restored (other endings possible)
  • it can be used in another effect or passed out
These techniques were developed during communications with MagicIan (Ian Garrison) just before his untimely passing. He was going to add it to his lecture tour material with a different ending. The Method is old. The ability to show the cut ends separately and apart is new....

Unknown Mentalist
Teletrack by Unknown Mentalist

This intro price will go up to $12 from September 21, 2021.

Teletrack is a quick propless effect where the performer impossibly tracks the thought of a participant telepathically. Beginning from the 'fate' of the participant and ending with the 'destiny' of the participant, the performer is able to identify the final silent thought.

Nothing is said or written down by the participant. You can perform this completely propless over a voice phone call, in a virtual show, or face to face in close-up, parlor, street venues, or even over a text chat. The method is easy and self-working but...

Remote Close Up 3 by Renzo Grosso

The effect on the phone has always intrigued me: you cannot arrange the cards, nor do you see them, the deck is that of the spectator, you cannot touch it or see it. Then there is an insurmountable difficulty: you have to explain each operation in a simple, step-by-step way and, not being able to visually check, you are forced to prepare, in the presentation, control "stakes"; all this, however, provided that your description is perfect and, at the same time, flawless, without danger of misunderstanding.

And then there is the "revelation" mode: it can only be presented as an effect of mentalism,...

Close Up al Telefono 3 by Renzo Grosso

L’effetto al telefono mi ha sempre incuriosito: non puoi predisporre le carte, né adocchiarle, il mazzo è quello dello spettatore, non puoi toccarlo né vederlo!

Poi c’è una difficoltà insormontabile: devi spiegare ogni operazione in modo semplice, passo - passo e, non potendo controllare visivamente, sei costretto a predisporre, nella presentazione, dei “paletti” di controllo; il tutto, però, a patto che la tua descrizione sia assolutamente perfetta e, contemporaneamente, impeccabile, senza pericoli di fraintendimenti.

E poi c’è la modalità di “rivelazione”: non...

Time Trix by Maurice Janssen

I have always been fascinated with time, just how precious it is. It's the one commodity we can afford to give away for free. I present to you, two different time predictions one for analog clocks and one for digital clocks. They are simple and to the point.

Volunteer names an hour or draws an hour hand pointing to their freely chosen hour and performer reveals a prediction.

Digital time: they merely think of one specific digital time among many. Associate their time with a time task and the performer reveals that specific task. I also included some extra, super easy impromptu time predictions. ...

Will Ayling
The Lilliputians by Will Ayling

An adventure into glove and rod puppet theatre.

From the introduction:

The need for a puppet show being established, the selection of type both of figures and presentation raised problems. The marionette string puppet, operated mostly from above, has an indirect application and limited movement in spite of considerable flexibility of joints. Rod puppets worked mostly from below, also suffer limitations, their movements restricted and stylised. Certainly both types require more than one hand to effectively operate one figure and are best suited to the traditional proscenium staging. ...

Bingo Bango: A Brief History of the Bingo Shooting Device by Jeff Stone

This small spring-loaded Bingo Shooting Device causes a loud bang by exploding a gunpowder cap.

According to its creator, S.S. Adams, ". . . It goes off with a loud bang when moved or disturbed. This little fun-maker can be used for jokes in a hundred different ways. Place it in a napkin or magazine, under a plate, cigarette box, hat, etc. [it’s] entirely harmless and always creates a big laugh."

Adams himself was known to install them in decks of playing cards, cigar boxes, books with risqué titles, and a whole lot more. Many of the ideas originated by Adams are sprinkled throughout this...

An ingenious alternative to a Chop Cup where the 'cup' is constructed "on the fly" from a magazine sheet while spectators make paper balls, or crumple dollar bills. No gimmicks! The trickery is built into the cup itself and undetectable. There are moves not possible with a standard Chop Cup and ends with a transport to a spectator's hand who keeps the cup and ball. No difficult sleights or handling as the Fold Cup does its thing automatically. But, the special techniques taught moves the astonishment far above a traditional Chop Cup approach.

Arthur Setterington
The Power of Perception by Arthur Setterington

PERCEPTIONISM - The recognition of audible or visible signals, transmitted voluntarily, or involuntarily, which reveal personal traits and idiosyncrasies. The interpretation of these signals may be used in a variety of ways by the receiver.

The majority of the effects described, are "mental" items, but the psychic approach has been eliminated in favour of the psychological, and the demonstrations appear to be based on natural, rather than supernatural happenings.

The person presenting this routine, is a demonstrator, not a magician, and the articles used should suit the style of the...
