Shuber Vise

Chris Wasshuber

Shuber Vise by Chris WasshuberThe Shuber Vise is a card guard that has a card press integrated. I always wanted to combine these two functions into one small enough accessory to fit into my pocket. The Shuber Vise does exactly that. It is not wider than a deck of cards and is only somewhat longer and thicker, yet it perfectly protects your cards and keeps them under pressure so that they do not warp or bend, which every deck of cards does after some use without being pressed flat. With decks that cost $20 and more these days, it pays to take good care of your cards.

If your deck is already warped and bent, no problem....

Blank Card Surprise

Wolfgang Riebe

Blank Card Surprise by Wolfgang RiebeWacky, incredibly visual and totally impossible. Only a few words can describe this reputation maker. Ever wondered what to do with those double blank cards you've collected over the years? Here's the ultimate trick for you.

A spectator can chose any 4 double blank cards from a deck, or you can hand out 4 cards for inspection. Any one card is signed and placed aside. The remaining 3 cards all change to the spectator's signed card and can be clearly shown one at a time. In the end, they all become blank again and the spectator keeps his original signed card as a souvenir.

A packet card...

Elective One-Eyed Jacks

Ian Baxter

Elective One-Eyed Jacks by Ian BaxterThe One-Eyed Jack Sandwich theme was popularized by Harry Lorayne. However, it was none other than the Australian Charles Wicks who started the ball rolling, with his contribution The Charmed Watch appearing in The Magic Wand journal over eighty years ago. Ian's streamlined version keeps within the guidelines of a totally impromptu approach, observing the need to avoid difficult moves and eliminating superfluous handling.

Auto-Find

Ken de Courcy

Auto-Find by Ken de CourcyBased on a Bob Hummer and Karl Fulves principle. A spectator is handed seven playing-cards. He shuffles them, then places one of them aside face-down without looking at it. Now squares of cardboard are shown with cut-out windows. Spectator follows the magician's instructions and, at the end, looking through the cut-out windows in the cards, an index of a card appears. The chosen card is turned over and has been correctly revealed.

You will have to make up the squares of cardboard for this. The trick itself is self-working, the real work having been put into the evolution of the effect, but they are useful for...

Nite Club Thimble Magic

Chuck Smith

Nite Club Thimble Magic by Chuck SmithHere is an amazing and entertaining magic act that runs a full five minutes, yet it leaves the audience wanting more. An ebook every magician should have. Chuck Smith's routine includes beautiful vanishes, appearances and color change transformations. It looks so incredible to the audience, yet the entire act relies on only two, easy-to-master sleights. Everything can be examined (should the performer wish) before and after ... the thimbles really are ungimmicked.

If you're an enterprising conjuror, use the corporate colors of your sponsor for the color changes for even more applause. Also...

Jimmy Muir has this knack. And he reveals all in this worthy successor to his Laugh Lines manuscripts with this booklet, packed to the gills with great material, including gags, one-liners, and good-natured heckler-stoppers which you can put to immediate use.

Impossi-Bill Braid-3+1

Ralf Rudolph (Fairmagic)

Impossi-Bill Braid-3+1 by Ralf Rudolph (Fairmagic)Years ago Robert E. Neale came up with his method on how the make an impossible gift out of a borrowed banknote using three strips and a few folds. Now it's time to bring this idea to the next level by using four strips! This makes the braided bill look even more impossible then before!
  1. You could use almost any borrowed banknote or paper. (It does not work with Euros.)
  2. Totaly impromptu.
  3. No glue or hidden cuts. Make this impossible object right under the nose of the audience. Even if they look very close, they can't rebuild it.
Note: The folding technique of Robert E. Neale's version is totally different...

Aldo Colombini

Un piccolo tesoro che ti permette di eseguire cinque effetti concatenati senza alcuna abilità che hanno dell'impossibile. In pratica l'artista ritrova in maniera incredibile delle carte scelte dagli spettatori in un mazzo ripetutamente mescolato dagli stessi.

Per dirla con le parole di Aldo:

"In questo piccolo libro sono contenuti cinque effetti che hanno del miracoloso agli occhi del pubblico. Essi possono essere presentati separatamente, tuttavia ti esor¬to ad eseguire l'intera routine così com'è qui presentata,...

Es gibt Kartenkunststücke, die ohne viel Übung vorgeführt werden können. Ihre Anzahl ist jedoch eine beschränkte. Wer sich aber der Mühe unterzieht einige spezielle Kunstgriffe zu erlernen, dem erschließt sich eine unerschöpfliche Fundgrube neuer überraschender Karten-Experimente.

Die Zahl der bestehenden Kartenkunstgriffe ist eine sehr große, aber verhältnismäßig nur wenige sind erforderlich, um ein relativ guter Kartenkünstler zu werden. Auf Grund meiner langjährigen praktischen Erfahrung habe ich in vorliegender Broschüre die wichtigsten Kunstgriffe,...

Sub Rosa 14

Werner Miller

Sub Rosa 14 by Werner MillerThe highlight in this collection of sleight-less magic, is the Point Reflections principle, which is a new mathematical principle Werner Miller has introduced to magic. So far nobody has made use of it, except Miller. This ebook will likely change that. This principle opens new doors for new ideas, a fertile ground for trick creators. Miller's point reflection routines come with beautiful print templates. You can go from printing to performing in literally seconds. You will also get some bonus ideas by Chris Wasshuber.

Vernon's 1-2-3 Revisited

Ian Baxter

Vernon's 1-2-3 Revisited by Ian BaxterThis revision of the Vernon classic not only underlines the all-important simplicity angle by using a shortcut display move, but dispenses with Vernon's need for Palming. Bruce Elliott briefly touched on this in the concluding lines of his write-up for The Phoenix. Here, a slightly modified handling for treating either the Ace or 2 is employed, with preliminary and somewhat repetitive displays of the three cards being trimmed. Into the bargain, fakes and duplicates used in some later versions, are conspicuous by their absence. This is a completely impromptu approach that can be performed at...

Optik Deck

Unknown Mentalist

Optik Deck by Unknown MentalistThis is an intro price and will go up to $12 on July 9th, 2018.

Optic Deck is an optical/visual memorized deck. You 'see' a number 1-52 in your mind's eye and you 'optically' or visually know what card is at that number. Similarly you 'see' any card in your mind's eye and you again 'optically' know what position the card is at.

The stack looks very random, the suits look random, there is no red/black alternating pattern and even after reasonable scrutiny it would be almost impossible to spot a sequence, because there is none. Even magicians after being told that there is a stack involved...

W. G. Magnuson

The Ellis Mindreading Act by W. G. MagnusonEFFECT: The performer delivers a short lecture on mental telepathy and introduces the lady medium, whom, he explains, can with mental telepathy, answer any short question of a serious nature.

Small pads and pencils are passed out to interested spectators, requesting that they write their important questions, sign their name and fold the paper two times to make a small billet, with the question concealed inside. While the questions are being written, the medium is blindfolded and seated behind a small undraped table on the stage or raised platform. The folded billets are now collected in an...

Of Paradise by Tom PhoenixHere is a collection of Open Prediction methods, for the working mentalist or magician. Each method is clean, using no gimmicks.

These methods employ unorthodox techniques, and will take some practice. Since only sleight-of-hand is required, you no longer need to carry extra gimmicks or special decks to perform this type of effect. A spectator makes a free selection, the selection is replaced, and is then shown to match your prediction.

Four methods are included. Each one is 100% clean. You can use a borrowed, shuffled deck. There are no gimmicks, no R/S, no SF, and no sticky stuff. These...

The Cerebral Approach: Book Five: Twin Killing

Nick Conticello

The Cerebral Approach: Book Five: Twin Killing by Nick ConticelloProblem: To divine or locate two cards that are merely thought of by two persons.

This effect has intrigued me for many years. I've published several approaches in the past ("Think Stop" in Automatic Placements, "Talons of the Hawk" and "Talons of the Bat" in Potpourri 2, to cite a few) but these tricks smack openly of mathematics. They lack the directness of selection and revelation I would deem ideal.

Two classic but widely divergent approaches are Ed Marlo's "Double Thought, Single Deck" and Simon Aronson's "Simon-Eyes." Recently, I combined Marlo's basic premise with a concept of Aronson's and a hitherto unpublished key card...

Strongest Thought by J. G. Thompson Jr.We're going to let the words of the immortal Robert A. Nelson describe this amazing psychic demonstration.

A volunteer assistant (not a confederate) hands out to any spectator of his choice, white cards and envelopes and the performer requests these persons to "write something." The spectators comply and seal their cards in the envelopes provided, after which they are gathered by the volunteer who passed them out. All this is perfectly fair, for the performer doesn't leave the stage at any time. The volunteer assistant takes care of everything.

After securing all the envelopes, the volunteer mixes them...

What’s great is that 70% of the times you'll have a hands-off / clean ACAAN and for the rest 30% you have to do something logical which is covered by the presentation to make it look like a hands-off...

20th Century Mindreading by W. G. Magnuson20th Century Mindreading is a classic and is considered to be one of the best things that G. W. Magnuson ever released. It is the Holy Grail when it comes to cold-readings. It contains the Alain DeLysle cold reading spiel which many mentalists consider the best cold reading ever written.

The DeLysle reading is brilliantly conceived and will hit 99 out of a 100 sitters. When you first read it, you will think someone has written a detailed life history of you! It's that good. This is considered a full-blown reading and goes from cradle to grave.

All you have to do is read it over a few times...

Timely Trickery

Jon Racherbaumer

Timely Trickery by Jon RacherbaumerWhile we all intuitively understand what time is, even a child can tell you what time it is, it is a hard concept to fully understand from a scientific point of view. It is hard to define, and wrap your head around. That is part of the intrigue of making it the topic of a magic effect. Particularly for an interested and sophisticated audience it can be a very effective plot line. Jon Racherbaumer explores how magicians have made use of it over the decades, and he has unearthed some remarkable gems.

How To Make Money with Mind Reading

W. G. Magnuson

How To Make Money with Mind Reading by W. G. MagnusonHere is a rare release from the past by G. W. Magnuson. In the 40s, he put out a booking system for mentalists. It showed an easy way to get into theaters with your mind reading show. This system was used by most of the prominent mentalists in the 40s and 50s including Bob Nelson.

Believe it or not, this almost forgotten system still works today, but on a more limited basis. If you are a mentalist looking to fill in some of your open dates, then you may find Magnuson's ideas to be of use.

In the 40s and 50s, many top names mentalists were using this system to make a good living, while others not...

New Zealand Brag by Ken de CourcyA close-up "lay-out" type effect based on a mythical game, "New Zealand Brag".

You deal out the shuffled Aces, Kings and Queens, yet miraculously when the hands are turned over they have separated into suits and, what is more, each hand is in their right order, Queen, King, Ace! Something very different in card magic.

Joker Surprise

Wolfgang Riebe

Joker Surprise by Wolfgang RiebeIf you are searching for a visual 'packet style' card trick with normal (even borrowed) cards, then this is the trick for you. Three red numbered cards are removed from a regular deck of cards and all simultaneously shown to be normal cards. One at a time, each card changes into a Joker. The last change is the most visual of them all. The cards are clearly all shown to be jokers and instantly they change back into the original three normal red numbered cards.

A packet card trick with normal cards. Can be done impromptu with a borrowed deck.

The video instructions include:

  • Two full performances...
