Readers Notes: card and coin readings for entertainmentDavid Gemmell
This ebook is aimed at giving psychic readings for entertainment using normal playing cards or coins which can be borrowed. We begin with a simple but effective card reading system that can be used in a very short time to give quite insightful readings. You are led through various advanced techniques which provide even greater depth and meaning for the client.
The coin readings mostly follow an impromptu approach to the point of borrowing the coins used for the reading. This of course provides an almost perfect hook. We finish with an impromptu method for the I-Ching which once mastered (in...

Places like the Eiffel Tower, Niagara Falls or Stonehenge.

Imagine an effect which gives you an opportunity to give a 100% accurate reading on your spectator. The spectator is asked to think of one of seven emotional words. The performer gives a highly accurate reading and as a bonus the performer reveals the thought of word as well.
Harmless is a Russian Roulette type of effect. The spectator is asked to examine six cards, each one has the word 'Click' on one side and 'Bang' on the other. Six envelopes are examined and any card is placed into any envelope as the performer explains that each card represents a bullet and...

Reassembled FinaleAllan Ackerman
Four hands are dealt starting with an Ace for each hand. Another three cards are dealt on top of each ace. One at a time the Aces travel to the magicians hand - your standard Ace assembly. However, in a flash the aces jump back and on top of each pack is an Ace.
There are no difficult moves in this routine, but it is a longer routine with several steps to remember.

The Lazy Man's Interlocking Setup IIMichael Maxwell
One spectator receives a prediction for safe keeping. Another spectator receives a portion of the deck, shuffles it thoroughly, deals cards one at a time on the table, and stops whenever he likes. He may stop at the first card, the last card, or anywhere in between. The value of the randomly chosen card is used to count to a card in the remaining portion of the deck. And that card matches the prediction.

A New GameMichael 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...

25 Rising Card TricksUlysses 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....

Glass of Water Production RoutinePercy Press
This was a favourite effect of the much loved Percy Press. He was, perhaps, the last of the English 'Street Conjurors' and had performed this effect thousands of times.
HOW IT LOOKED
Percy would tilt his small table forward to show that the top was solid. Replacing it on the ground, he laid a white handkerchief on it. A 10p coin was borrowed and placed in the centre of the handkerchief. He then borrowed a soft trilby hat and covered the coin with it. He lifted the hat and the coin was still on the hank. He placed the coin in his left hand and it vanished. He replaced the mouth-down hat...

The MintAlan Rorrison
This is a really clever visual effect. I love it.
Present a 'mint sheet' (a piece of aluminum foil). Borrow a coin and press the coin into the mint sheet. The impression looks just like the coin. But of course it is just an impression not a real coin - or is it? Hand the coin with which you created the impression back to the spectator. You only have the aluminum foil with the coin impression. With your thumb you squeeze and pull the impression of the mint sheet and create a new coin. The impression has transformed into a real coin. You do the same with the other side of the coin to 'mint'...

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,...

Metal MorphasisAlan Rorrison
Have a spectator take out a coin and have him sign it. Show an empty card case and drop the signed coin into it. The card case is closed and put on the spectators stretched out hand. Then you bring out a bottle cap or take one that is lying around and have it signed as well. The bottle cap is lying on the table. You take the card case held on the tips of your fingers - to make clear that no sleight of hand is possible - and tap the bottle cap. The bottle cap instantaneously transforms into the signed coin.
The transformation is incredibly visual and happens right in front of the spectators...

In FlightAlan 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.

Broken HomeAlan Rorrison

Black MarkAlan 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.

Popular Card TricksWalter 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 on 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 from putting it out, and Walter issued it under his own name. Ted Annemann considered it one of the best books in its field . ....
