Pavel

100% Magic by PavelA selection of some thirty varied tricks for stage, parlor and close up, illustrating practical examples of magical plots and their solutions.

These are lecture notes for one of Pavel's lectures. Most of the descriptions are pictorial. Pavel intended this as a memory aid for people who attended his lecture. The descriptions are therefore not necessarily complete or very detailed in all cases.

[You might also be interested in Troy Murphie's notes he took after seeing this lecture.

Troy Murphie

100% Magic Notes by Troy MurphieI attended the Pavel 100% Magic Lecture when he visited Sydney, Australia sometime around 2005. I traveled the 2 hr drive home after the lecture and made sure to jot down notes about the effects that I was impressed with before I retired to bed that night. In hindsight I wish that I had written explanations for all the effects, but it was not to be. So what we have here are 8 items from this lecture explained in my own words. Along with the 100% Magic Lecture 'pictorial memory aid' which contains diagrams of the routines, you should have no trouble following the brilliant thinking behind these eight items.
