Cards

The most popular tricks are card tricks. Take a pack of cards and perform a miracle. Some of the masters whoes work you will find here are Dai Vernon, Tony Slydini, Roberto Giobbi and many many more. A pack of cards with its 52 pasteboards allows a shear infinite number of combinations and variations of card tricks. A philosophical question to ask would be if there are a finite number of card tricks possible or an infinite number. Looking at the amount of published card tricks it appears to be for all practical purposes infinite. Nevertheless the classic themes remain extremely popular and effective. It is hard to top a good ambitious card routine, card warp, oil and water, card to wallet (or other impossible locations), or torn and resored card etc. But occasionally we are blessed with the grace of a genius who gives us the gift of a completely new trick, concept or principle.

This and That by (Benny) Ben HarrisThe best-seller from 1986 is back.

You predict in advance which card will be named! Easy and fun.

This and That was a big seller back in the mid 1980's when the "Oscar" and "Phil" craze were at their peaks.

A spectator names any card (free choice) and you display that your deck has marked backs. They are all marked like "THIS" you say as you display cards in the deck as having the word "THIS" written on it's back. That's every card, but one. The selected card, on the other hand, has the word "THAT" written on it's back. Proving you know "this from that!"

Super easy to make at home...

Zoom by (Benny) Ben Harris
"The construction of the card is ingenious..." - Michael Close (Magic Magazine)
The famous and easy animated card that mysteriously moves away from your fingers—zooming across the table.

Examinable, before, during and after. This is one of the most devious uses of Elastic Thread ever created. Prior to releasing the idea to critical acclaim in 1999, Ben had been sitting on this for over ten years, using it privately for the most important occasions only. It is the perfect effect for Street Magic performances as it can be performed under the most stringent conditions—ANYWHERE!

As you and the...

Hoodwink by (Benny) Ben Harris
"I highly recommend this to all of you who are interested in learning a devilishly clever approach to TORN & RESTORED CARD" - Danny Orleans (Genii Magazine)
Hoodwink is based on the author's own effect, "Prime Hole Card" from 1983. It became a best-seller when re-released in 1999. Everyone was concentrating so hard on complex quarter-at-a-time restorations, that Hoodwink, with it's stunning flash restoration, seemed like a breath of fresh air.

Hoodwink is not designed to replace, or to in any way compete with, the fine crop of "quarter by quarter" restorations that are making the rounds. Instead,...

Enlightenment Book 1 by (Benny) Ben HarrisFull details of how this magnetic miracle works.
"Ben...what a beautiful thing you have created here. The moment that card breaks free from gravity in the spectator's hand is quite the joyous event." - Paul Harris
Enlightenment is a revolutionary way of using magnets to create the illusion of levitating a playing card or a dollar note.

This 100 page ebook gives you all of the details. Learn the back history, how a simple advertisement in a catalog inspired the idea. Learn how to operate the gimmick, how to install it in a deck of cards, and how to use it to make a dollar bill float. You'll still...

Crossroads by (Benny) Ben Harris

"...the Crossroads Deck; a devious conception and one of the most interesting to hit the magic scene in recent times..." - Peter Duffie (from the foreword)

"The Crossroads technique alone, which we really like, will be seen as food for thought by many. As mentalists, our variation would be to use no deck at all. Just a single, thought-of card in the pocket. The solution will dawn on you after reading the text..." - Richard Busch & Larry Becker

Singapore Lecture Notes by (Benny) Ben HarrisBen Harris' first set of lecture notes from his first ever lecture in 1985— re-written, re-photographed...

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....

Oil and Water Delux by (Benny) Ben HarrisThis 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.

1st edition 1985; 1st digital edition 2009; 18 pages.

Fandango by (Benny) Ben HarrisReleased 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. ...

Bands of Gold by (Benny) Ben Harris
"Ben's Band Book is some of the best band and card magic ever. Some could be plucked out and used as single trick downloads. As with every Ben Harris ebook of wonder, it's beautifully laid out with lots of photos to help you along. Highly recommended. ***** 5/5 Stars" - Jamie Daws
The opening trick in this gorgeous ebook is just cool. A mini bet in which 2 bands are shown around the card case width ways. One will win the spectator $100 and the other one will win the magician $100. One is selected by the spectator without equivoque. Of course it's just a normal band. The other is removed and there...

Crossroads Revelations by (Benny) Ben HarrisHere's the follow-up to the best-selling CrossRoads Deck. An amazing variety of material!

This detailed ebook looks at expanding the "CrossRoads revelations phase" in a variety of ways. "Compression" is what the author calls it, and here he squeezes the "outs" into Double Faced and "multi-index" configurations. The full instructions for the commercially available D/F SET and DEVIL'S PEEK SET are included, along with additional photographs. By fully exploring the possibilities in print, with this ebook, you can then decide if the special card sets would be worthwhile additions to your tool box.

Alida: Little Winged One by (Benny) Ben Harris
"A cool and animated levitation of a card or dollar bill... EASY TO MAKE!"
My goodness, this little effect created a shit-storm when it was released in 2000! I don't think the attacks had been so brutal since Cosmosis (in the mid 1980s). Anyway, this simple and effective idea was loved by some (see, for example, Richard Kaufman in Genii Magazine), and hated by others (see, for example, Michael Close in Magic Magazine). Ben relishes dividing opinion, and Alida certainly did that.

However, it was also a genuine stepping stone in the thought processes that would eventually lead to Enlightenment: The Ultimate Floating Card - which is way superior. So, controversial...

5th Corner by (Benny) Ben HarrisA flash back to 1987 and a "long lost" manuscript, seen by only ten: Jerry Andrus, David Britland, Jeff Busby, Dave Faulkner, David Harkey, Ed Marlo, Dan McArthy, Harvey Rosenthal, Jay Sankey and Mark Trudinger, made it's brief, and only appearance... then, it was gone!

So what is the 5th Corner? It's a splash of ideas and techniques with a single playing card and it's ripped corners. You are both "one ahead" and "two behind" at the SAME TIME. This charming but annoying attribute is what probably led to the stony silence heard by the author in 1987. Can YOU make head-way with this strange and bizarre single-card oddity? Why...

Ultimate Floating Deck 2.0 by (Benny) Ben HarrisThe Ultimate Floating Deck or UFD was first published in 1984. Since then it has spurned many variations. The current manuscript has been refined and re-written. This brings the effect right up to date by cutting out the superfluous "1980's handlings". Consider this some serious "house cleaning" after twenty six years!

Now, the structure is linear and smooth--from the selection to the levitation. Clean, smooth, direct.

A card is selected and returned to the deck. It is given a quick all-around-square-up, and then placed on the palm. On command, the top half of the deck floats. First a...

Solid Gold Easy Action by (Benny) Ben HarrisThis is one of Ben Harris's favorite effects. Released in 1987, it featured heavily in his lectures across the '87-89 period and was a total sell-out at the major magic conventions, or whenever demonstrated.

In effect, a small envelope is shown, signed on BOTH sides by a spectator, and then left IN FULL VIEW upon the table. A card is now FREELY selected from the deck, and also signed. The spectator pushes his card squarely into the deck and then counts the cards. Mysteriously, his card has vanished. There are now just 51 cards in the deck.

The envelope, which has been in FULL VIEW the...

Through the Universe - Backwards by (Benny) Ben HarrisOne of the most eye-popping color changing decks you will ever see.

"The presentation is rich in content, and the effect is as clear and clean as can be. This is one of the best cc deck routines I have seen." - Peter Duffie

"Brilliant. Beautiful. Straight into my set." - Kyle MacNeill

EFFECT:

The performer reaches into his pocket and removes an envelope. From within he removes a single BLUE-BACKED card. (The deck in use has RED BACKS.) The blue-backed card is placed to one side. It's identity is unknown at this point.

The performer explains...

Mach2 by (Benny) Ben HarrisThis is the follow-up to Solid Gold Easy Action, and consists of a refined envelope design which allows the chosen card to be loaded with the deck in a fanned state. It also allows for the SWITCHING of cards IN AND OUT of the envelope. This is a vast improvement over the original envelope design, allowing many effects to be created.

Digital Delirium by (Benny) Ben HarrisSTUNNING VISUALS AS YOU PRINT 3 THOUGHT-OF CARDS WITHOUT ANY GAFFS!
Requires intermediate card skills. Not for beginners.

This is an “underground handling” for Click Click Click—a routine that originally appeared in Ben's 1989 Lecture Notes and in the book, Mad Fax & Other Mysteries (1990). It, in turn, was the outgrowth of Foto, from Out Of His Mind (1988). The never before published handling—revealed here—adds to the over-all impact by eliminating any need to ”return to the deck” prior to the magical printing of the third card. This was a procedural requirement in the previous...

Superflip and S.F.U.C. by (Benny) Ben HarrisImagine: You’ve just performed several stages in your “Ambitious Card” routine. For one final time you place the “magic card” in the middle of the deck. The deck is placed face-down in the middle of the table. You show your hands empty. With a snap of your fingers you gesture toward the deck. Now, by simply riffling upward gently on the tabled deck’s edges—and dribbling the cards back to the table—the signed selection instantly and visibly appears face-up, atop the deck!

You accept your well earned applause and feel cool that you’ve done this by mastering a simple and clever...
