Aldo Colombini

Standing Room Only (ebook) by Aldo ColombiniIn this set of notes you will find several tricks and routines that have served Aldo well during the last few years as a stand-up performer. In fact, the tricks explained here can all be done standing up as no table is required and are great for walk around or strolling magic. Done this way you simply use the hands of the spectators to help you.

Aldo has written these tricks and routines with the assumption that you already know some basic magic such as a card control, a Double Undercut, an Elmsley Count and the like. Aldo's purpose here is not to teach you ‘sleights’ but rather ‘routines’...

Aldo Colombini

Karl Fulves' The Chronicles by Aldo ColombiniKarl Fulves' legendary magazine The Chronicles was limited to 36 issues, from 1978 to 1988, during those ten years some of the finest close-up magic of the period was explained in its pages. From the magazines, with permission from Karl, Aldo has selected ten routines; just a small portion of that outstanding collection.

CONTENTS:

  • COIN ENTRAPPED (Mike Skinner): Two coins are on a card box. One is selected by a spectator and penetrates the cellophane.
  • ROYAL BACKS (Jeff Busby): Five cards with backs on both sides change into a Royal Flush in Spades.

Aldo Colombini

The Close-Up Magic of Aldo Colombini by Aldo ColombiniEver since Obie O'Brien brought Aldo Colombini to the FFFF convention many years ago, it has been a love affair between Aldo and magic in America. While Aldo can do some of the hardest moves, he has developed a unique style of strong magic with little sleight-of-hand. The kind that is entertaining to watch and fun to perform. None of the material is hard to do, yet will fool any audience, including those hard to please magicians themselves.

It is hard to miss Aldo, both in person (6' 5"), and in magic, because he has written for many magazines, performed and lectured throughout the world...

Aldo Colombini

Color Changing Knife Routine by Aldo ColombiniA very easy, commercial and entertaining color changing knife routine in several phases. With ideas by Ken Brooke, Ascanio and Juan Tamariz. For close-up and walk around. A white knife (or any color) changes to black. You simply say that you are using TWO knives so you produce a white one. The two knives change places a few times and at the end everything can be examined (obviously you have to bring your own knives)!

Colombini FISM Lecture Notes by Aldo ColombiniThese are the lectures notes for a lecture Aldo gave at FISM.

Tip Top: the magician displays several cards bearing pictures of clowns, having different colored noses. A spectator selects a clown and the performer is seen to have the same colored clown nose... on his nose!

Poppy: a knot, tied in the middle of a piece of white rope, slides to one end, then the other; then change color. The different colored knot slides along the rope several times; the knot is then untied and seen to actually be a two inch section of the white rope.

Hit: method to tie two quick slip knots, one with each...

  • You are the only one who knows!

Alexander de Cova

California Lecture 2006 by Alexander de CovaFrom the introduction:
You will find that most of my mterial is suitable for the stand-up performer. This is due to the fact that in Europe there aren't too many opportunities to work restaurants, bars and other close-up situations. We have to deal with small stand-up shows, birthday parties, wedding parties, smaller theatres and cabarets, and the like. Naturally, if you want to survive as a performer, you will have to adapt to this situation and develop suitable material. Above all, the material must be direct and to the point, because the European audiences generally don't have too much...

Ananta Deb Banerjee

Designed to Deceive by Ananta Deb BanerjeeMr. Deb was initiated into magic at an early age. As a teenager, he was inspired by the Late P.C. Sorcar’s Magic Shows, and soon started performing his own magic shows in local clubs on many occasions. He developed an interest in the 'mechanics' of tricks and started making his own props in his own small home workshop. He gained a wealth of knowledge by avidly reading a wide variety of books on this subject.

The eight effects described in this ebook are mechanical self-working props, that "do" the magic. The performer has little else to do, once the props are ready, than pull the correct...

From the introduction:

During a very exclusive lecture for about one hundred magicians Karl demonstrated the impact and the value of his routines. That day he was nearly 75 years old and at about the same time, David Copperfield received standing ovations at his opening performance in the Deutsche Theater in München, only a few miles away from that place Karl received standing ovations for his commercial and entertaining close-up magic.

Arthur Leroy

Outline of Mystery by Arthur LeroyHere are a devil's dozen effects, moves and miracles for the semi-professional that, for the most part, don't rely on external gimmicks. It's one of those rare books that, the more you read it, the more you'll appreciate it. Not written for the faint of heart. If you're after bold, professional magic, this is the book for you. (And yes, the title is a pun on H. G. Well's Outline of History. Kudos if you caught that.)

You'll find effects for close-up, platform and stage. The details are provided as if you were a trusted confidante of the author.

August Roterberg

The Modern Wizard by August RoterbergRoterberg was a dealer, but he also wrote excellent magic books - four altogether. The Card Tricks and how to do them is an excerpt from New Era Card Tricks. So actually he wrote only three books. The Modern Wizard was his first one. It explains tricks with silks, eggs, glasses, billiard balls, coins, candles, pill boxes and more. Roterberg has a very efficient style of describing a trick. He supplies no patter or other fluff, but still manages to explain a trick thoroughly. He packs 68 tricks or methods into merely 120 pages. He closes his book with the chapter "The Art of Magic" where Roterberg gives a crash course in how to be a good magician....
