Arthur Leroy

At Your Fingertips by Arthur LeroyAvailable again at long last is this comprehensive work explaining the brilliant thimble artistry of Jimmy Shannon. Jimmy Shannon was the talk of the magic world in the 1930s and 40s, with his beautifully orchestrated thimble manipulation act. His moves were accepted by experts as the most original, most unusual and altogether fascinating of his day. When the time came for Shannon's moves to be recorded for posterity, the task was given to a young writer who was already making a name for himself: Arthur Leroy. In fact, it was felt that Jimmy Shannon's moves were so entirely different from average...

Paul Stadelman

Secrets of Sandu by Paul Stadelman

Two books in one, containing the secrets of a professional's act of club and mental magic, plus his favorite card effects.

We love it when a working performer tips the actual methods from his act. And that's what you get in the first half of this enjoyable ebook, which was originally released as a limited edition. The second half contains Sandu's favorite card effects. While not all of the effects in this section are self-working, they rely on sleights that the average performer already knows.

Raphaël Czaja

Red, Hot and Wild by Raphaël Czaja

An ungimmicked and easy-to-do double transformation with playing cards using the spectator's signature.

The magician displays a red-backed Joker. "Jokers can be useful in any card game but they also have interesting properties for magicians. Let me show you how." A spectator selects and signs a card in a blue-backed deck. The magician buries the signed card and inserts the Joker into the deck. "When in contact with the deck, the Joker is able to take the identity of any selected card, including yours." He spreads the cards face down to show the red-backed Joker in the middle. The red-backed...

Abhinav Bothra

Self-Working CAAN by Abhinav Bothra

An effortless CAAN that the audience performs for themselves.

Features:

  • You never touch the deck of cards.
  • Can be done Close-up, Parlour or on Stage
A participant holds out the fingers of both their hands and drops down any number of fingers. The fingers left extended (say 2 and 1) forms the number (they get to choose 2 & 1 becomes 21 or 12) The participant opens up the pack of playing cards, deals the cards down (face up or face down doesn't matter). The card at their number matches the card you predicted (written on a paper before performance)

Honest Note: While you don't touch...

Graham Hey

The Comedy Cosmonaut by Graham Hey

'Out of this world' laughs, visual gags and tricks to add atmosphere for close-up and stand-up.

From the introduction:

This ebook is a little different from my others in that this one contains some tricks and routines too. So there really is something for everyone in this ebook. Opening visual gags have always played a big part in my own act on the cruise ships as they help settle any nerves while also getting over to the audience that my show is going to be fun (hopefully)! I've included a few here, including a sure-fire winner which uses The Smurf Song.

Mark Lewis

Lives of a Showman by Mark Lewis
"Mark is one of the truly interesting characters in the world of showbusiness. He has a brilliant yet wicked sense of humour, and is often misunderstood by his peers. As someone who has known him for much of his life, I consider him to be a man of incredible talent as both a performer and grafter [demonstrator]. He is extremely resourceful, and is a walking encyclopedia when it comes to magic and other branches of entertainment. His life is truly one of mystery and intrigue, and he is a wonderful raconteur as will be seen in the pages of this masterpiece. I would consider Mark to be a true showman, and...

Brick Tilley

Growing Hank by Brick TilleyMilbourne Christopher demonstrated this in his final lecture at the Magic Castle, revealing that he had taught it to Harry Blackstone, replacing a less deceptive version Blackstone had been doing for years in his show. A small handkerchief, held by opposite corners, is twirled between the hands and seems to grow to massive proportions.

This is highly recommended as an opener, and can lead into a dove production of other effect with the handkerchief.

Maurice Janssen

Card Stories by Maurice JanssenThere are plenty of card tricks that amaze and fool the people. Here is a nice deviation from the same old card trick scenario. It has minimal audience participation (other than to just watch and listen). You basically are telling a short story with a deck of cards. This concept is not new, by any means. Every performer should have a version of "their story" to tell that utilizes a deck of cards. The goal here is not to completely fool but to entertain them with a story.

I've included three variations on a similar theme, this should get your creative juices flowing to create you own card...

Toto

The Book of Thirty-One by TotoFrom the preface and introduction:
This book could be titled "The Game of Thirty-One Revisited" because of the various articles that have made an attempt to describe the game. Why then did I set out to write this? First, because I consider the game of thirty-one such a delightful diversion from the "norm" that I want to bring it to the attention of the magic fraternity, and second, because I have many ideas I would like to add.

At the Magic Castle, in Hollywood, the game was first shown to me by Dai Vernon in August of 1980. The "Professor" frequently showed me card puzzles that he had learned over...
