Augustus Rapp
The Life and Times of Augustus Rapp the Small Town Showman by Augustus Rapp

Excerpt from the introduction by Robert Parrish:

It appears that there have always been roving showmen: minstrels, montebanks, travelling players. Being such a trouper is a bit different from being an actor, or performing artist per se. You are not booked, your coming is not arranged for. You do not depend upon any of the machinery that makes the showman an organization man. You just take to the road and keep moving.

Such showmen differ from pure vagabonds in that they have a calling; to perform. This distinguishes them from the great American character the Confidence Man, although the Confidence...

The Third Eye by Davide Rubat Remond

I started from Karl Fulves' idea called "Voodoo Cards", published on pp. 588-589 of The Pallbearers Review, Vol. 5-8 (November 1969 - October 1973), where a series of five effects proposed as bets are described, with the use of only three cards or tickets written on the spot. Always winning bets and of immediate revelation at first glance, also considering the fact that there are very few elements at stake and the (perceived) probability of success is 50%.

I propose an evolution of Fulves' work with three effects based on the same kind of principle, characterized by an apparent increasing difficulty,...

Il Terzo Occhio by Davide Rubat Remond

Sono partito dall’ idea di Karl Fulves chiamata “Voodoo Cards”, pubblicata alle pp. 588-589 della raccolta The Pallbearers Review, Vol. 5-8 (Novembre 1969 - Ottobre 1973), dove sono descritti una serie di cinque effetti proposti come scommesse, con l’utilizzo di sole tre carte o biglietti scritti sul momento. Scommesse sempre vincenti e di rivelazione immediata a una prima occhiata, considerando anche il fatto che gli elementi in gioco sono davvero pochi e la probabilità (percepita) di riuscita è pari al 50 %.

Ian Baxter
Chased Marriages by Ian Baxter

Australian card man Ian Baxter presents a brand-new, revamped handling of that timeless classic, Royal Marriages.

Totally impromptu and free of sleights, fakes, stranger cards, accessories and the like. You won't find so much as a camouflaged in-jog here in this modernised gem where the Kings and Queens of the pack magically pair up in their correct suits. Just eight cards are used, the four Kings and four Queens from any deck.

Reviewer David Jones sums it up: "A simple and effective little mystery. Short, stunning and entirely sleight free. Another winner from Ian Baxter."

Zaw Shinn
Vanished by Zaw Shinn

Vanish small objects such as a coin, sponge ball, poker chip, card corner from your bare hand.

The construction of the gimmick requires some arts and crafts. The method produces a sound that you need to be able to mask with music or some other way. Also, you will have to watch your angles. This method works fine for a social media video or perhaps on stage but is otherwise not very practical.

Stacks and Stacks of Cards by Val Evans

Excerpt from the introduction:

About ten years ago the writer spent some time in 'doping' out a few poker deals as well as other games. He was fairly successful as the following stacks will attest. They are not all perfect and possibly may be bettered and improved, but he will say this much, he has not as yet run across any prearrangements that equal them. Incidentally one of the best poker deals on the market retailing for over two dollars is based on an arrangement that the writer created around 1920.

Renzo Grosso
In Magica Augusta Taurinorum: The Magic of Turin by Renzo Grosso

The Magic of Turin is a stage or living room mentalism effect, and if desired - with the appropriate modifications - it can also be proposed over the phone, with only the audio connection.

The proposed solution (for the effect in presence) also allows repetition of the performance, one after the other, since it uses tools and methods that allow this eventuality.

Two spectators are invited onto the stage: one of the two will be the mentalist's collaborator and will have to mentally suggest to the performer the place to direct the other spectator. The other person - in this example, a...

Irv's Triple Transposition by Irv Weiner

Add to your arsenal of outstanding close-up effects with this hard-to-find manuscript from a recognized master of deception. The effect is simple and direct: Four Aces change places with four Kings, which are later found face-up in the deck.

Meanwhile, in the pile formerly occupied by the Kings, are cards that match one previously selected by a spectator.

Or, as Canadian reviewer Sid Lorraine says:

"Aces in one pile, Kings in another. The Aces and Kings change places; then the Kings jump into the deck face up and the four remaining cards on the table turn out to be the four Queens."

Color Pips 2 by Zaw Shinn

A magician shows a card with cut-out pips and puts it into a playing card box. The spectator selects a card. When the magician takes out the cut-out pips card from the case and shows it one more time, it suddenly changes to a card without cut-out pips, and when turned face-up it has changed into the spectator's card.

Requires arts and crafts to construct the gimmick.

The ATM Pin and Other Stories by Renzo Grosso

All the great masters of magic and illusionism recommend two essential points in their meetings:

  • simplify the effects as much as possible, remove everything that is not strictly necessary,
  • build a patter, a story that is worth telling, that excites the listeners, that contributes to the creation of the perfect climax for the ending, to amaze your listeners.

The patter and the story justify and accompany the performer in carrying out the effect, and are always important, regardless of the method and technique used; in card magic, both in sleight-of-hand and in automatic or mathematical...
