William (Bill) Simon
Effective Card Magic by William (Bill) Simon

This book was edited by Jean Hugard and illustrated by Stanley Jaks.

Martin Gardner had the following to say:

"Bill Simon has achieved an astonishing mastery of the medium. His mind is constantly probing for new and subtler moves, and bold effects which break fresh paths in the card jungle. In this book he has given generously the fruits of his thinking and experience. The result is a book almost certain to become one of the basic texts of modem card conjuring."
This ebook covers many entertaining plots, novel sleights, shuffles and fancy cuts as well as useful information on practice, structuring, presentation, audience...

William John Hilliar
Modern Magicians Hand Book by William John Hilliar

What an excellent book. The quality of the material is outstanding. What makes this book particularly rare is a chapter on juggling and how to fake great juggle skills. I have yet to see another book on magic with such an extensive chapter on juggling. You will also find the obligatory chapter on shadowgraphy, a good write up of black art, and large sections on cards, coins, and tricks with many other props. You will find billiard ball manipulation as well as stage tricks with large apparatus.

William Lee
Solar Wind by William Lee

Solar Wind - The Perpetual Floating Card - is not so much a magic trick as it is a piece of magic art. A card hovers above the deck...and just keeps on hovering. Leave it on a desk, table, or shelf and it could be enjoyed for years.

Is the method invisible? It depends on the surface, the background, and the lighting. Set up on a dark surface it is very difficult to see the mechanism, even from a couple of feet away. By choosing the right conditions it is possible to make it even more invisible. However, the method is not 100% invisible.

This is hard to build. Some of the steps require...
