Pocket Magic Show 2 by Hal McClamma

Transpositions are some of the most magical and satisfying effects for magicians and audiences. Spectators are often left dumbfounded when an item vanishes from one place and reappears elsewhere. In Volume 2, I will review what I consider to be the best tricks or effects in the main transposition category of thumb tip magic. If you can master these effects, you will learn how to perform many other related tricks or effects. These are the building blocks of effective transpositions in thumb tip magic.

A transposition is when you make an item vanish in your tip and reappear elsewhere or change...

From the Foreword:

What started out as a few lecture notes seem to have reached the size of a small book. I hope that the reader will find something to stir his or her imagination. Do try out some of the effects. All are practical and have been tried out. Most have been in constant use. The coin routine and the dice routine for instance. I must have performed both of these many thousands of times.

The Pepper In and Salt Out Magic Trick by Hal McClamma

This guide will take you step by step through the process of learning the Pepper In and Salt Out Transformation and Vanish. This trick or effect is designed for beginner to advanced magicians. You will learn moves and handling that will serve you very well in dozens of other effects. There are several twists and turns that are very uncommon and not found in the normal salt/pepper shaker routines seen in the magic universe today.

Four things make this effect very special.

  1. Spectator Involvement. The spectator pours pepper from a pepper shaker into the closed fist of the magician.

Pocket Magic Show 1 by Hal McClamma

Impromptu thumb tip magic effects are by far some of the most popular and satisfying forms of magic. Impromptu effects appear to be spur of the moment and not prepared in advance. Being able to perform mini-miracles at a moment’s notice will cement your unquestionable reputation as an authentic magician. There are perhaps 150-200 core thumb tip effects that work well while performing for a small group. If you will learn to handle a thumb tip properly, you can perform these miracles right under the spectator’s nose and they will not see a thumb tip. In fact, the thumb tip is on the thumb...

The Magnetic Thumb Tip Done Right by Hal McClamma

This isn't your fathers magnetic thumb tip. Your tipistry reimagined and revolutionized. Tipistry means breathtaking thumb tip handling ability, competence, proficiency, or mastery.

This guide will show you how to dramatically improve your thumb tip ability (Tipistry) with magnets. How can something so simple and so overlooked be so amazing? One person posted on a forum many years ago and said, "Don't get a magnetic tip. You can do anything you can do with a magnetic tip with a PK Ring." (Magnetic ring). Nope. No way. Totally misguided. Absolutely untrue. Poor fellow, bless his heart. He...

Bob Haskell
The Magic of Haskell by Bob Haskell

Bob Haskell's genius for brilliant story plots and well-thought-out mechanics made him a master of cabaret and platform magic. The inventor of such masterpieces as the Split Deck and the X-Salted Shaker digs deep into his performing repertoire to give you 17 of his favorites. Ranging from effects with cards, rope, a beautifully animated silk mystery, and a pair of mysteries using the "tap-it" principle, there's something within these pages for almost any necromancer worth his (or her) salt.

Here's magic for the performer who's up on basic card sleights and/or who can handle an effect using...

The Ultimate Angle Proof Vanish by Hal McClamma

This can be the most powerfully deceptive steal or vanish in your thumb tip arsenal. No, it is not the Slydini Back Steal or the Vernon Kick Steal.

"This is the best 10 minutes of thumb tip magic ever! Thank you so much Hal." - Kim Fitzpatrick

The Ultimate Angle Proof Vanish video is by far the number one video download I have ever offered on the thumb tip. This is an incredibly deceptive, under your nose steal or vanish for not just a silk, but anything you can possibly fit in a thumb tip. Performed slow and with no wacky hand movements or gestures or crazy sleights; I believe this is the best...

In this work, we find for the first time the popular Out-to-lunch principle (see for example Anagramation by Jim Krenz) being published.

From the introduction:

The better one becomes acquainted with magic, the more one realizes that the word "novelty" must be used with care. That is, if one wishes to be strictly veracious. Nevertheless, I believe the reader will find that the various offerings in this book possess some element of newness - either in the effects themselves or the methods outlined.

It will be noted that I have not included items that are only accessories or suggestions (with which another book...

Exclusive Problems in Magic by Edward Bagshawe

From the introduction:

This book has been primarily written for the Drawing-Room and Concert Artist who will, I trust, find the material offered for his perusal, sufficiently away from the "beaten track" to be of practical value. The majority of the effects described have been thoroughly "tried out" - and therefore they can be relied upon to "work." I have endeavoured to set forth a selection of original ideas that are not only (to the best of my belief) new in effect, but, to some extent, in method also - thus checkmaking the spectator who knows just a little too much.

Remote Close Up 6 by Renzo Grosso

Numbers have tremendous power. They rule life and the universe. There is no living being, molecule, event, evolution that cannot be described with an algorithm, a mathematical formula. Numbers, everywhere. From the speed of light to the circumference of the earth, to the inhabitants of the world, to the ATM pin.
