Larry Travis
Ivy by Larry Travis

Here are six card magic routines, plus variations on two of them. All are truly impromptu, meaning they can be done with a borrowed, shuffled deck of ordinary cards. Some sleight-of-hand is required.

Synaptic - you reveal their thought-of card by "tuning in" to their senses

Maybe - an in-the-hands Open Prediction

Sweep - they choose a card through a visualisation process, but you knew their choice beforehand

Little Sympathy - impromptu sympathetic cards

Royal - a variation of Little Sympathy

Silver - they choose every card for two hands of poker, and you reveal a photographic...

Gary Jones
Life's a Beach Volume 2 by Gary Jones

Gary is one of those performers who is equally at home presenting magic to lay people or to a room full of magicians, and his creative output reflects those two requirements. Some of the magic in this collection is designed to intrigue and fool magicians, while other effects are fast, direct and perfect for working under almost any commercial conditions.

What all the magic has in common is that the methods have been constructed to extract the maximum effect for the minimum of fuss. Some of Gary's handlings do require some sleight of hand - he is very fond of palming cards, for instance...

Joseph K. Schmidt
R.C. Buff's The Best of Buff by Joseph K. Schmidt

A selection of new and novel rope magic from R.C. Buff's rare Rope Leaflets.

Excerpt from the introduction:

In 1980 Mr. R.C. Buff, "The Wizard Of Knotsville", started putting out a little Xeroxed publication called "BUFF'S LEAFLETS" which was devoted exclusively to Rope Magic. These LEAFLETS were published for over four years and contained a lot of fine material. Because they had such a limited distribution, it was deemed beneficial to the magical fraternity if some of this excellent material would be assembled into booklet form.

I think you will be amused and delighted to read some examples...

Clever Card Conjuring by C. A. George Newmann

A hard-to-find treatise on the beveled or "Stripper" pack, written by a world-famous mentalist and master magician.

Collected Magic Series Volume 8 by Percy Naldrett

Excerpt from the introduction:

No, my ever so constant and indefatigable readers, this book contains no marvels, but merely the practical effects of men who conjure, men who think and men who achieve, in contradistinction to the dreamers who dream.

I said just now that there was nothing startling in this book; but there is some very good Magic. The "Snowman" takes my fancy. True, it makes use of plaguey and never-sufficiently-damned tubes. The peculiar stringing of a pack of cards which you will find on page - (How can I tell on which page it will eventually appear!) is alone worth the...

Joseph B.
Maybe You Think by Joseph B.

Determine the card selected and the sum cast with two dice in a novel and very deceptive way.

You show a deck of cards, shuffle it and while you look away the spectator throws the two dice, adds the points shown, removes that many cards and remembers the lowest card in the removed packet. The dice are covered so that the performer can't see them. Now comes the unusual thing. The removed packet is inserted by the spectator somewhere in the middle of the pack. Then the spectator cuts and with a rosetta shuffle the cards are shuffled. This is immediately followed by any number of riffle and...

Sultan Orazaly
Fantastic by Sultan Orazaly

The impossible appearance of a pen in a bottle.

Show an empty plastic bottle and suddenly a big sharpie pen materializes inside the bottle. Dump the pen out and show it.

Note that this has very bad angles and can only successfully be performed in front of a camera or one stationary viewer. Great for YouTube and video chats but not an item performable with a live audience. Gimmick is easy to make.

Zaw Shinn
Coke by Zaw Shinn

The magician draws a coke can on the back of a playing card. With a wave of his hand, the card changes to a real coke can.

Please note that this only works from a very narrow viewing angle and thus can only be successfully performed when a camera is between the performer and the spectator which allows precise control of the viewing direction. The gimmick is easy to make.

How To Do 60 Tricks with Cards by A. Anderson

Embracing all of the latest and most deceptive card tricks now in use.

Excerpt from the introduction:

From the earliest ages the Magic Art has been highly popular among all classes; and, of its many marvels, Card Tricks, whether produced by sleight of hand, mathematical combinations, or mechanical means, are the most generally appreciated. Cards are to be found in nearly every home circle, so the prestidigitateur always has his principal tools at his finger ends. With them alone the most startling surprises can be caused, and the card conjurer has also the advantage of knowing that all his...

Alexander's own method of a convincing Question-and-Answer (Q&A) routine that borders on genuine ESP. Learn it and you, too, can be "The Man Who Knows!"

At one time Alexander offered his original Q&A routine through Thayer as a separate manuscript. Out of print for years, this clever method is once again available to mentalists and psychic entertainers to baffle a new generation of audiences.

The act is specially devised and arranged for the performer who caters to Lodge, Club and College lecture tours since no assistant or apparatus is required. A truly one man act. This act had previously...

Biagio Fasano
Selfworking Contactless ACAAN by Biagio Fasano

A.C.A.A.N. effects are a genre of effects now considered classics in card magic and mentalism, ever since David Berglas, who precisely first proposed a legendary version of it, called it "Any card At Any Number."

The idea of trying to write this special eBook came about while I was preparing my Contactless Automatic Card At Number series of Volumes (now at 6 Volumes) and experimenting in particular with the possibility of creating new automatic effects by making use of various stacks, including Si Stebbins and my VR Stack Pro (see Vol. 2 & 3):

From here to examining the Si Stebbins Pro, devised by Dr. Hans Christian Solka, was a short step, and with pleasure...

Gli effetti A.C.A.A.N., in Italia notI anche come “Carta al Numero”, sono un genere di effetti oramai considerati dei classici nella Cartomagia e nel Mentalismo, da quando ne propose una versione leggendaria David Berglas, che appunto per primo l’ha definito “Any card At Any Number”.

Herrmann's Book of Magic by Alexander Herrmann

A complete and practical guide to drawing-room and stage magic for professionals and amateurs, including a complete exposure of the black art.

Excerpt from the introduction:

Do not cultivate quick movements; at the same time it will never do to be painfully slow; but endeavor to present your tricks in an easy-going, quiet, graceful manner. It is generally understood that “the quickness of the hand deceives the eye,” but this is entirely erroneous. It is impossible for the hand to move quicker than the eye can follow, as can be proved by experiment. The deception really lies in the...

A coin effects enhancement mission.

This material provides an involving adventure into the creation of new performance modules as an enhancement for coin effects.

So, just imagine ... You have two empty hands (wiggle-wiggle) and a couple of coins on a table. Maybe they are borrowed or spectator selected from a basket. Three half-dollars – yeah, nothing else. You pick up one coin with your right fingers and drop it into your left open palm. You select a second coin to join the first – see it fall, clink! Two coins now visible on the left palm. Your right fingers claim the final coin...

Quodlibet by Davide Rubat Remond

With this work I wanted to celebrate the famous number tables, protagonists of the game "Guess your age". I thought that this game, considered the 'oldest mentalism effect', could be improved and that that weak magic effect could be transformed into something powerful, without increasing the difficulty of execution. By accentuating certain qualities of the principle that governs them, I developed the new cards, the evolved version of the number tables. Everyone knows the classic version of the game: a spectator chooses a number and indicates which and how many tables it is on, the mentalist...

Mettendo in risalto alcune qualità del principio che le regola, ho elaborato i nuovi cartoncini, la versione evoluta delle tabelle numeriche. Tutti conoscono la versione classica del gioco: si fa scegliere un numero a uno spettatore, che indica...

Shadow Thread by Sultan Orazaly

A thread that penetrates stuff, your hand, your thumb, a playing card ...

The performer shows a piece of thread that hangs down from his hand. A playing card is held with the other hand behind the thread. With one smooth motion, the thread penetrates the card and is suddenly behind the playing card. It is hard to believe your eyes.

The gimmick is easy to make and there are no bad angles. This looks as good from the back as it does from the front.
