P. T. Selbit

The Magician's Handbook by P. T. SelbitThe inventor of "sawing a lady in half" has written quite an interesting book. It covers a good range of topics. Particularly the inclusion of fringe fields to magic, such as juggling and black art, makes this book unique. Certainly this is mainly a magic book, so tricks with handkerchiefs, and balls are many to be found as well as several interesting illusions. This book is in one other respect quite different to other books. The table of contents is in alphabetical order. So Selbit has kind of combined contents and index - interesting.

Karl Fulves

The Magical World of Slydini (Text & Photos) by Karl FulvesThis is the continuation of Best of Slydini ... and more.

As the first volume, this ebook includes both the text and the photos of the original two volume hardcover set. Each of the more than 1300 photos is available twice. The first time the photos appear dispersed through the text close to where each photo is first mentioned. And the second time all photos are together in one place, the same way this material was originally published - text and photos separate. Having the photos included with the text avoids the constant reference to another volume. But having them also together by themselves allows for a stop-motion-like...

Lewis Ganson & Tony Slydini

The Magic of Slydini by Lewis Ganson & Tony SlydiniThis is a classic book, probably the best book on close-up magic ever written. Now available as ebook with improved layout. The original book had the 448 photos grouped together in full page photo plates. This meant that most photos were removed from the text which goes along with the photos. We have corrected this error in this digital edition. All photos have been inserted in the text where they are referred to.

Slydini was a genius of misdirection. Every movement and every word is deliberately chosen to direct the attention of spectators as well as to produce a graceful and engaging brand...

The Magic of Kli Ban by Louis E. ClibanoffThis long-lost work contains eight marvelous effects for magicians everywhere. There are mental-flavored mysteries (including a dictionary test and a billet experiment), a vanishing flower from buttonhole effect, and several card tricks of the miracle class where the magic seems to happen almost entirely in the spectator's hands.

This is actually two manuscripts bound as one: Magical Odds and Ends and Kli Ban's Routine with a Borrowed Deck. The original work is "unobtanium," with copies so scarce as to be virtually nonexistent. We're happy to bring these effects back to a new generation of...

"I found the latest E-books from Gregg Webb, S.O.H.O., The Shade, and Lizard Wizard's Diary, to be refreshingly different. The books are "hand-written" in journal style and contain simple but clear illustrations. Not only are they a fun read, but also contain top notch practical magic." - John Luka

Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

The Leaf by Ralf (Fairmagic) RudolphMagic is mostly performed with man-made products - cards, coins, silks, ropes, ... Why not perform magic with items nature provides? This is even more powerful, because there is inherently no suspicion of gimmicked objects. Ralf has created a stunning miracle that is easy to perform during a stroll in the woods, or during a garden party, or other places where plants are in reach. All you need is access to leaves growing on a tree or a shrub and a pen to sign a leaf.

Effect: You and your spectator collect a couple of leaves. The spectator tears one in half, and signs it. Miraculously the torn...
