Bands of Gold by (Benny) Ben Harris
"Ben's Band Book is some of the best band and card magic ever. Some could be plucked out and used as single trick downloads. As with every Ben Harris ebook of wonder, it's beautifully laid out with lots of photos to help you along. Highly recommended. ***** 5/5 Stars" - Jamie Daws
The opening trick in this gorgeous ebook is just cool. A mini bet in which 2 bands are shown around the card case width ways. One will win the spectator $100 and the other one will win the magician $100. One is selected by the spectator without equivoque. Of course it's just a normal band. The other is removed and there...

Werner Miller
Enigmaths 1 by Werner Miller

Here you will find 20 self-working effects all based on mathematical principles. Most of them are card tricks. This is the first volume in a series of ebooks.

Max Maven: "I am a fan of Werner Miller."

Scott Cram: "Werner Miller has a great knack for taking simple mathematical principles to highly entertaining levels."

Walt Lees: "[Werner originates] card and mental magic based on subtlety and well-hidden mathematical principles. Unlike so much of that kind of thing, Werner's ideas are distinguished by their clean-cut methods and easy-to-understand effects."

R. Shane: "Werner [...] is a frightening man. Not 'Norman Bates' frightening....

Readers Notes: card and coin readings for entertainment by David Gemmell

This ebook is aimed at giving psychic readings for entertainment using normal playing cards or coins which can be borrowed. We begin with a simple but effective card reading system that can be used in a very short time to give quite insightful readings. You are led through various advanced techniques which provide even greater depth and meaning for the client.

The coin readings mostly follow an impromptu approach to the point of borrowing the coins used for the reading. This of course provides an almost perfect hook. We finish with an impromptu method for the I-Ching which once mastered (in...

"Travel is a technically a very simple effect, you can go out and perform it pretty much straight away, it's strength is in this simplicity, it's an IDEAL opener for any mentalist or magician" - Dee Christopher
You introduce a laminated card which is covered in easily recognizable places from the world. Places like the Eiffel Tower, Niagara Falls or Stonehenge.

You ask a spectator to do an imaginary trip to any of the nine famous sites depicted. You ask them to imagine themselves to be there. You then slowly reveal their thought of place.

Martin Adams
Nexus by Martin Adams

Emotional:

Imagine an effect which gives you an opportunity to give a 100% accurate reading on your spectator. The spectator is asked to think of one of seven emotional words. The performer gives a highly accurate reading and as a bonus the performer reveals the thought of word as well.

Harmless:

Harmless is a Russian Roulette type of effect. The spectator is asked to examine six cards, each one has the word 'Click' on one side and 'Bang' on the other. Six envelopes are examined and any card is placed into any envelope as the performer explains that each card represents a bullet and...

Allan Ackerman
Reassembled Finale by Allan Ackerman

Four hands are dealt starting with an Ace for each hand. Another three cards are dealt on top of each ace. One at a time the Aces travel to the magicians hand - your standard Ace assembly. However, in a flash the aces jump back and on top of each pack is an Ace.

There are no difficult moves in this routine, but it is a longer routine with several steps to remember.

Michael Maxwell
The Lazy Man's Interlocking Setup II by Michael Maxwell

One spectator receives a prediction for safe keeping. Another spectator receives a portion of the deck, shuffles it thoroughly, deals cards one at a time on the table, and stops whenever he likes. He may stop at the first card, the last card, or anywhere in between. The value of the randomly chosen card is used to count to a card in the remaining portion of the deck. And that card matches the prediction.

Michael Maxwell
A New Game by Michael Maxwell

This trick was developed by Allan and Debbie Ackerman. Debbie is Allan's daughter.

A spectator chooses a card and the value of the card decides how many hands are dealt in this game. Let's say the spectator chooses the 3 of Hearts. A random number of cards is taken from the deck and then dealt into 3 hands. Then the performer announces that the spectator should pick one pile. If that pile does not have a 3 on its top the spectator wins, otherwise the magician wins. Of course, the odds are vastly in favor of the spectator. Nevertheless, the top cards on all three piles turn out to be 3s and as...

Jerry Sadowitz
Cards on the Table by Jerry Sadowitz

This was Jerry's first hardbound collection and it contains some wonderful card magic. New plots, new methods, all with the distinctive Sadowitz flair for ingenuity. If you haven't read any of Jerry's material before, this book will convince you why Jerry is regarded as one of the most creative cardicians.

The book opens with "Fetch", an animated card discovery which you will use as soon as you read it. Or what about "A Million to One" in which the spectator shuffles the deck and then cuts it into two piles, one contains all the red cards, the second contains all the black cards! Or if you...

Ulysses Frederick Grant
25 Rising Card Tricks by Ulysses Frederick Grant

This is the first and to this date one of only two English publications exclusively devoted to the rising card effect (the other being Knowing the Rising Cards). This was an early publication by U. F. Grant and is therefore exceedingly rare. Some of the methods described are well known others are quite unusual and therefore highly interesting.

It is likely that the effect of the houlette swinging on two ribbons in Samuel Hooker's famous rising cards is done exactly the way U. F. Grant describes in this manuscript.

The cover boldly states the price: $1 - in 1935 that is. According to the inflation calculator one dollar in 1935 is $15.53 today....

Percy Press
Glass of Water Production Routine by Percy Press

This was a favourite effect of the much loved Percy Press. He was, perhaps, the last of the English 'Street Conjurors' and had performed this effect thousands of times.

HOW IT LOOKED

Percy would tilt his small table forward to show that the top was solid. Replacing it on the ground, he laid a white handkerchief on it. A 10p coin was borrowed and placed in the centre of the handkerchief. He then borrowed a soft trilby hat and covered the coin with it. He lifted the hat and the coin was still on the hank. He placed the coin in his left hand and it vanished. He replaced the mouth-down hat...

Alan Rorrison
The Mint by Alan Rorrison

This is a really clever visual effect. I love it.

Present a 'mint sheet' (a piece of aluminum foil). Borrow a coin and press the coin into the mint sheet. The impression looks just like the coin. But of course it is just an impression not a real coin - or is it? Hand the coin with which you created the impression back to the spectator. You only have the aluminum foil with the coin impression. With your thumb you squeeze and pull the impression of the mint sheet and create a new coin. The impression has transformed into a real coin. You do the same with the other side of the coin to 'mint'...

Stretch by Alan Rorrison

A lovely card stretching routine - very simple to do, because a little something does most of the work for you.

Have a card selected (totally free choice) and draw a happy stick figure on the back of the card. The spectator can even sign the back, too. Then you place the card back on the top of the back and add another card on top of it - the stretch box. You now stretch the card with the signature clearly showing. At the end, simply square up table the top card, the stretch box, and hand out the selected with the stick figure as a souvenir.

This is very simple, no difficult sleights,...

Alan Rorrison
Metal Morphasis by Alan Rorrison

Have a spectator take out a coin and have him sign it. Show an empty card case and drop the signed coin into it. The card case is closed and put on the spectators stretched out hand. Then you bring out a bottle cap or take one that is lying around and have it signed as well. The bottle cap is lying on the table. You take the card case held on the tips of your fingers - to make clear that no sleight of hand is possible - and tap the bottle cap. The bottle cap instantaneously transforms into the signed coin.

The transformation is incredibly visual and happens right in front of the spectators...

Alan Rorrison
In Flight by Alan Rorrison

This is a neat card and coin to pocket effect.

Have a spectator grab a coin and sign it on both sides. You vanish it, or as Alan likes to say 'make it invisible'. Have a spectator select a card, and also the card vanishes while rubbing it on the leg.

Both card and coin magically traveled to your pocket. However, the unbelievable miracle is that the signed coin is actually inside the spectator selected card. The card has to be peeled open like an in-flight envelope to get to the coin.

Alan teaches every detail. A unique and unforgettable miracle.

Broken Home by Alan Rorrison

Borrow a set of keys. Break off the tip of a key clearly showing the broken key still on the key ring. Then mend the key and return all keys in perfect condition back to the spectator.

Black Mark by Alan Rorrison

A black mark drawn on the back of an incorrect card transforms it into the correct card which was selected earlier by the spectator.

For example, the spectator selects the 3 of Hearts. The magician finds a card but it is the 3 of Diamonds. He draws a black mark on the back of the card. The mark penetrates the card and shows up on the front with the correct suit: Hearts.

Walter Gibson
Popular Card Tricks by Walter Gibson

Walter Gibson intended this book for the novice. All the tricks are quite easy to perform. And in the beginning under the heading "The Presentation of Card Tricks" Gibson gives very valuable advice of how to create a program and how to present it.

Nevertheless the book is so good that even the intermediate and advanced card magician will be able to learn a lot from its pages.

This book was originally written by Walter B. Gibson for Houdini. Houdini's death in 1926 prevented him putting it out, and Walter issued it under his own name. Ted Annemann considered it one of the best books in its field . . . it...
