Devin Knight
The Hustle by Devin Knight

A great little trick/bet you can learn in just a few minutes and you are always ready to stump someone. The effect can be done with cards, matches or coins.

Peter Prevos
The Jastrow Illusion in Magic by Peter Prevos

The Jastrow illusion is known to magicians as the boomerang illusion. Two boomerang-shaped ring segments seem to be of different sizes but are in fact identical.

Magicians tend to underestimate the power of this simple trick. Its use in magic is limited to children's entertainers and magic kits. This illusion is more powerful than it seems at first sight. A recent viral video shows that its deceptive power is as strong as it was when first discovered almost 150 years ago.

The Jastrow Illusion in Magic ebook provides an in-depth review of the psychology of this illusion and a detailed overview...

The Magic of Mahadevananda by Mahadevananda

Excerpt from the introduction:

My real forte is, I think, being able to take a couple of standard effects and shove them together and get a bit of a different effect. I also enjoy reading old magazines on Magic and reviving some of the good things that have been covered in dust for years. Who said, if you want to keep an original idea secret, publish it in a magazine? Truly, many real gems can be unearthed by plowing through old books and magazines.
