Loring Campbell
This Is Magic by Loring Campbell

Nicely illustrated routines of a full-time performer.

From the introduction:

"Why don’t you write a book on Magic?" I have been asked this question hundreds of times in the past several years, and my answer has been that I am too busy, or that I wanted to be the only Magician who did not write a Magic Book!

However, I have taken the time from my hundreds of shows en route each season to conduct a monthly column in TOPS Magazine and to write many articles and tricks for the Sphinx, Genii and Linking Ring. So when I was requested to compile all the tricks I had formerly written for these magazines...

Hal Saxon
Thumb Tip Handling Masterclass by Hal Saxon

"It's a thing of beauty. Everything is covered and I believe it might be one of the best purchases magicians can make today. You cover everything in detail and it's a pleasure to watch. - Olivier Boes

I want us to reimagine and revolutionize our tipistry. Tipistry means breathtaking thumb tip handling ability, competence, proficiency, and mastery. If we can pull this off, you'll also skyrocket your confidence with a thumb tip.

My methodology is to perform close up, with no weird or wacky moves. I just perform slow and deliberate with handling and moves that defy logic.

Jon Racherbaumer
Timely Trickery by Jon Racherbaumer

While we all intuitively understand what time is, even a child can tell you what time it is, it is a hard concept to fully understand from a scientific point of view. It is hard to define, and wrap your head around. That is part of the intrigue of making it the topic of a magic effect. Particularly for an interested and sophisticated audience it can be a very effective plot line. Jon Racherbaumer explores how magicians have made use of it over the decades, and he has unearthed some remarkable gems.

Top Secrets of Magic 1 by J. G. Thompson Jr.

What a wonderful book on sleight of hand magic with small objects this is - profusely illustrated with more than 200 photos, by a recognized inventor, author, and reviewer of magic.

From the introduction by Blackstone:

But, there has always been a dearth of practical routines, probably due to the difficulty encountered by most magicians in linking tricks into a smoothly flowing series of mysteries and, perhaps, because of some innate trait of laziness found in most of us. That is why I am so impressed and pleased with the text of Jim’s book. It truly helps to fill an unfortunate gap in magical...

Top Secrets of Magic 2 by J. G. Thompson Jr.

From the introduction by Milbourne Christopher:

I first heard of Jim Thompson in the pages of Ted Annemann's Jinx. Then his main interest was mental magic. I have never seen him perform but I have seen many magicians use the tricks he has put into print. I always visualize him as a mild mannered man who would make an excellent beacon in a blackout. See his "Moonlight Madness," page 301 in Annemann's Practical Mental Effects, or page 265 in My Best.

This current volume of "Top Secrets" is the second in a planned trilogy. You have most of the objects needed for the feats described. If something special is required, Jim will tell you how to make it, or where to buy it....

Tractare by R. Shane

In Tractare (a Latin word that means "to handle") the exploration of unusual effects continues. Tractare features magic that is easy to do, based on a subtlety or simple move, but nothing that really requires sleights or finger flinging. Here you are able to beguile your audiences while making them smile, laugh, engage and become part of your show.

From the preface:

This being a magic book, it's only appropriate to begin with a trick question:

What's a sleight?

Careful; I told you it was a trick question.

Tricks about travel and more.

Here's a selection of cool self-working magic and mentalism tricks perfect for close-up and stand-up.

For example: The spectator freely selects a luggage label that has a holiday destination written on it. When a world map is opened, their chosen destination is circled.

Or how about this: A selection of postcards is shown - they're moved from the back of the pile to the front. When the spectator calls 'STOP!' the very next postcard is the only one with a hand-written message on it.

Or: Three luggage labels with vacation destinations written on them are...
