Michael Maxwell
A New Game by Michael Maxwell

This trick was developed by Allan and Debbie Ackerman. Debbie is Allan's daughter.

A spectator chooses a card and the value of the card decides how many hands are dealt in this game. Let's say the spectator chooses the 3 of Hearts. A random number of cards is taken from the deck and then dealt into 3 hands. Then the performer announces that the spectator should pick one pile. If that pile does not have a 3 on its top the spectator wins, otherwise the magician wins. Of course, the odds are vastly in favor of the spectator. Nevertheless, the top cards on all three piles turn out to be 3s and as...

Jerry Sadowitz
Cards on the Table by Jerry Sadowitz

This was Jerry's first hardbound collection and it contains some wonderful card magic. New plots, new methods, all with the distinctive Sadowitz flair for ingenuity. If you haven't read any of Jerry's material before, this book will convince you why Jerry is regarded as one of the most creative cardicians.

The book opens with "Fetch", an animated card discovery which you will use as soon as you read it. Or what about "A Million to One" in which the spectator shuffles the deck and then cuts it into two piles, one contains all the red cards, the second contains all the black cards! Or if you...

Ulysses Frederick Grant
25 Rising Card Tricks by Ulysses Frederick Grant

This is the first and to this date one of only two English publications exclusively devoted to the rising card effect (the other being Knowing the Rising Cards). This was an early publication by U. F. Grant and is therefore exceedingly rare. Some of the methods described are well known others are quite unusual and therefore highly interesting.

It is likely that the effect of the houlette swinging on two ribbons in Samuel Hooker's famous rising cards is done exactly the way U. F. Grant describes in this manuscript.

The cover boldly states the price: $1 - in 1935 that is. According to the inflation calculator one dollar in 1935 is $15.53 today....

Alan Rorrison
Stretch by Alan Rorrison

A lovely card stretching routine - very simple to do, because a little something does most of the work for you.

Have a card selected (totally free choice) and draw a happy stick figure on the back of the card. The spectator can even sign the back, too. Then you place the card back on the top of the back and add another card on top of it - the stretch box. You now stretch the card with the signature clearly showing. At the end, simply square up table the top card, the stretch box, and hand out the selected with the stick figure as a souvenir.

This is very simple, no difficult sleights,...

Alan Rorrison
In Flight by Alan Rorrison

This is a neat card and coin to pocket effect.

Have a spectator grab a coin and sign it on both sides. You vanish it, or as Alan likes to say 'make it invisible'. Have a spectator select a card, and also the card vanishes while rubbing it on the leg.

Both card and coin magically traveled to your pocket. However, the unbelievable miracle is that the signed coin is actually inside the spectator selected card. The card has to be peeled open like an in-flight envelope to get to the coin.

Alan teaches every detail. A unique and unforgettable miracle.

Alan Rorrison
Black Mark by Alan Rorrison

A black mark drawn on the back of an incorrect card transforms it into the correct card which was selected earlier by the spectator.

For example, the spectator selects the 3 of Hearts. The magician finds a card but it is the 3 of Diamonds. He draws a black mark on the back of the card. The mark penetrates the card and shows up on the front with the correct suit: Hearts.

Walter Gibson
Popular Card Tricks by Walter Gibson

Walter Gibson intended this book for the novice. All the tricks are quite easy to perform. And in the beginning under the heading "The Presentation of Card Tricks" Gibson gives very valuable advice of how to create a program and how to present it.

Nevertheless the book is so good that even the intermediate and advanced card magician will be able to learn a lot from its pages.

This book was originally written by Walter B. Gibson for Houdini. Houdini's death in 1926 prevented him putting it out, and Walter issued it under his own name. Ted Annemann considered it one of the best books in its field . . . it...

Larry Jennings
The Lie Detector by Larry Jennings

An entertaining an fairly easy to perform effect.

Spectator picks a card, remembers it, and returns it. Performer claims that a pack of cards is like a computer and that he can program it to function like a lie detector. After the performer takes out some cards and reinserts them into the pack, the entire deck is handed to the spectator who answer and spells his answers by tabling cards. Was the card a face or point card? Was the card red or black? What suit was it? The bottom card of the tabled packet always shows the correct answer and therefore it is clear if the spectator told the truth...

Larry Jennings
The Pacoima Solution by Larry Jennings

The performer retails and reenacts a dream that at the end becomes reality.

A pack of cards is introduced. Spectator gives it a cut and peaks at a card in the center of the deck. Then the spectator gives the deck a shuffle. Performer turns half of the deck face up and half stays face down. The spectator is asked to remember if her card is in the face-up or face-down portion. The performer spreads the face-up portion. Then the portions are separated and the performer continues with his dream where he took a card crumpled it up and it vanished in mid air to reappear face up in the tabled portion....

Larry Jennings
A Logical Conclusion by Larry Jennings

A trick with eight cards. Two packets of four cards are put on the table. The first packet is counted and shown to consist of four 3s. The second is counted and shown to consist of four 7s. Then the packets are combined turned face up to show the Ace of Hearts through the Eight of Hearts. So essentially the four 3s and the four 7s have transformed into the Ace through 8 of hearts.

This effect can also be found in Cardwright. You will need to be able to do the Rhythm Count.

Edward Marlo
6 Hallucinations by Edward Marlo

Three playing cards vanish and then reappear in your pocket.

Here is a treat for serious card lovers. A gimmicked version of the amazing 'hallucination' plot along with 5 further non-gimmicked handlings. Ed was always thorough, and here it shows in style.

In effect, three spectators each look at the top card of the deck, one at a time. The performer comments about how people often have problems recalling details, and how various descriptions of the same event can vary dramatically. He offers to prove his point.

Fandango by (Benny) Ben Harris

Released in 1985, Fandango became a cornerstone for a variety of card "printing" and "sandwich" routines that would later be developed by the author. Here is the original manuscript with original photographs teaching this instant and highly visual sandwich concept.

In effect, a signed card instantly appears between two Jokers. Classic "Sandwich Plot," but the method is what differentiates this. Fandango allows you to propel the selected card into position between the Jokers.

It's instant and visual. Both the original gimmicked and non-gimmicked handlings are explained and illustrated. ...

"Outs" Precautions and Challenges by Charles H. Hopkins

This is truly a hidden gem - a lost treasure. Very few know of its existence and you will encounter almost no references to it. When you read this you will ask yourself: "Why isn't this work known by every cardician?" Some of those who have read it value it as much as they value Erdnase. Others would not trade all card books published in the last 10 years for it.

It is an immensely practical work dealing with situations when something goes wrong, or you face difficult spectators. You'll never again be afraid to try out a new trick, even if they literally see what you do, even if they really catch...

Turbulence by Peter Duffie & Cameron Francis

In Turbulence, the impossible becomes possible.

Turbulence is a multi-phase card routine that is both mind-bending and entertaining.

Effect:

Turbulence kicks off with a sizzling and super clean "Collectors" phase where four Kings instantly collect three previously signed cards. Then, in the blink of an eye, the three cards instantly vanish. The three cards are then reproduced as they are summoned from the deck one by one. Finally, the Kings are placed in your pocket and an impossible transposition occurs — the Kings are suddenly found on the table while the three signed cards are...

(Benny) Ben Harris
Oil and Water Delux by (Benny) Ben Harris

This effect appears described briefly, yet adequately, in the Singapore Lecture Notes. This is a more thorough description and is accompanied by clear photographs, making it easier to learn.

The routine uses four black cards, and four red cards. Interlaced three times, they always separate. The moves used are smooth and create a lovely illusion. It does not look like sleight of hand, it really looks quite convincing! Heavily based in Marlo's work.

These notes have been re-written and re-photographed. The material is bright, crisp and hard-hitting. Mostly cards, including a wonderful multi-phase OIL AND WATER routine that's a joy to perform. PYRAMID CARDS is an easy and visual stunt revelation that was originally created by Jay Sankey. Here are a couple of cool variations. COMING TOGETHER AGAIN is a real killer item based on a Sadowitz piece from Almanac (see demo video below).

The real highlight is the closer Ben used on both nights in Singapore....

Pasteboard Adventures by David Gemmell

A collection of routines from David Gemmell's working repertoir. Difficulty varies from effect to effect and is in the reach of most magician.

From the introduction by Jon Racherbaumer:

A few years ago Eugene Burger introduced a useful phrase to Cardopia—one that partially describes what passionate card guys do on a regular basis: to overly indulge themselves in the "antics of the pasteboards." Antics is the apt word because it evokes other defining words: playful, fantastic, theatrical, whimsical…

Those who memorialize their personal "antics" realize the nature of their acts. They take notes....
