Devin Knight

A Lifetime in Magic 1 by Devin KnightA selection of some of the best creations by Devin Knight. (Please note that all effects have been released earlier as standalone products and are available individually on Lybrary.com. See product links throughout the product description.)

Improved Tri-Epic Deluxe - this is a clever three or even four way newspaper prediction effect reminiscent of David Copperfield's Graffiti Wall, but more portable and totally suitable for a one man act.

Psychic Money Sense - designed for an intimate close up show, this experiment apparently shows that a spectator has an excellent psychic sense as he achieves an impossible outcome using three...

Devin Knight

A Lifetime in Magic 2 by Devin KnightVolume 2 continues where A Lifetime in Magic Volume 1 left off with detailed explanations for over 20 Devin Knight masterpieces. (Note that this is a compilation of items that were released earlier. All of them are available individually on Lybrary.com. See links throughout the product description.)

It starts with three stunning effects that appear to be as near to real mindreading as you can get - Almost Real Mindreading Feats. Devin explains little known principles which will enable you to reveal repeatedly which hand a spectator is merely thinking of, to remove the card a spectator simply looked at in a fan, and to name a mentally chosen card...

Scott F. Guinn

A Little Something by Scott F. GuinnIn this ebook you will find material that entertains and amazes, but more importantly, it is material that 'mere mortals' can actually do. Two dozen incredible routines. Cards, coins, and parlor/platform material is included.

Nothing is duplicated from Scott's other ebooks, lecture notes, or DVD--with one exception, and that has been greatly expanded and updated.

These routines bear the Guinn trademarks of clever thinking and thoughtful construction, from a man who has been called "one of our best close-up and stand-up performers" (Aldo Colombini, in The Linking Ring) and "one of the best writers in...

Eddie Joseph

A Magician Goes To Dinner by Eddie JosephFrom the introduction:
The tricks described here are for "extempore" showing. They have been specially developed for entertaining fellow diners, within watching distance, around a banquet or dinner table.

To perform "extempore" is not the same as giving a show on the stage. In one's regular program everything is premeditated. Performing to a group around the table is different. To begin with, the tricks must be of the type that could be worked without much ado. They must be short and spontaneous. They must be worked in an "off-hand" manner. Finally, not only in character but in appearance...

Will Goldston

A Magician's Swan Song by Will GoldstonAn autobiographical history of magic, profusely illustrated with diagrams of magic tricks and photographs of Goldston's career.

From the foreword by J. C. Cannell:

The exposures he makes range from the most spectacular and elaborate illusions to the smallest pocket trick. His book, indeed, is the alpha and omega of magic. He conceals nothing, hides no secrets.

The careful researches which I had to make in order to tell the public exactly how Houdini achieved his escapes and performed illusions which seemed like miracles, led me to think that I had exhausted all the resources of magic. But,...

Joseph White

A Scotch Brand of Magic by Joseph WhiteMagic enabled by double sided tape.

This ebook will show you how to place a coin at the tips of your fingers and, in full view of the audience, cause that coin to vanish in an instant! All this without the use of a pull. You may shake your hands vigorously to prove that nothing is contained therein. You then proceed to produce coin after coin from mid-air - you will produce a number of coins, not just one. With this new method of palming it is possible for the magician to work in short sleeves (or, for that matter, with no sleeves at all). You can show both hands convincingly empty and at...

Even when you know what he is doing, and if you know card magic you will, he will still amaze you with the ease and the confidence with which he does it.

Al Baker

Al Baker's Book by Al BakerFrom the introduction:
Showing a trick is comparatively easy to putting it clearly in print, and I want to thank Anneman for his judicious use of the blue pencil, finding spots where I could write less and tell more, and in general, being a marvelous deleter and paraphraser.

To John Northern Hilliard, whom I consider the greatest writer on Magic as an Art, I want to extend my sincere thanks for the encouragement that caused me to start and finally finish my maiden effort, to wit: Al Baker's Book.

Al Baker

Al Baker's Second Book by Al BakerFrom the introduction:
In presenting my "second" book to the magical fraternity I have kept in mind the old saw, "Brevity is the soul, not only of wit, but applies to many magical tricks".

I have tried to make the text brief and, by giving plenty of illustrations, cut down on too much solid type. I give no patter as I feel that every entertainer should be himself and develop a style of his own.

Fred Keating rose to stardom. "The Bird Cage", "Sympathetic Silks" and "Card in the Cigarette" were marvellous in his hands; others copied, but Keating's name still lives. "Be a magician, not...

Sam Dalal

All you wanted to know about Change Bags and 101 Tricks you can do with them by Sam DalalTo the average magician, a Change bag is a device like a collection bag, that changes a couple of silks, ribbons, rope or other similar items. Well, there are several varieties of those, with short handles for one hand operation, and longer ones for two hand operation, with single and double compartments (for a double change), with zippers to poke your hand through - Sam Dalal has made over a dozen varieties of this for his Magic service. But there are many other types of "change bags" like draw string bags and ladies' purses, paper "pop bags", mesh shopping bags and crystal clear bags, some...

Gregg Webb

Am Musing: 54 years inside the magic circle by Gregg Webb
"Gregg Webb has written an unvarnished, tell-it-like-it-is memoir of his life within and on the fringes of New York City's subculture of magic and magicians. If you want to know what it was like growing up for over half a century with David Roth, Charles Reynolds, Jeff McBride and other magic luminaries of New York, Gregg lays it all out, frankly, as he saw it." - Stephen Minch

"Gregg Webb is one of the Zen Masters of close up and parlor magic. He is a master of minimalism. His effects and streamlined thinking inspire me to do more with less!" - Jeff McBride, Las Vegas Headliner
