Production from Any Ungimmicked Magazine by Devin Knight

Most productions are usually from some kind of suspicious looking box that screams magic prop. This is the old-fashion way, time to step into modern times and do away with fake looking boxes that look like something only a magician would have.

With this method, the performer enters with an everyday magazine, such as People magazine. It is held carelessly in his right hand. He flips the pages showing it is an unprepared copy of Time, People or any other publication.

In truth, it IS absolutely unprepared! He tears off the cover and shows it on both sides using just his left hand. He then...

The Great Apple Heist by Devin Knight

A great trick for kid shows, especially at Halloween. Two kids take an equal turn at removing apples from a bowl. Yet one child ends up with 5 apples and the other 2 apples. Baffling to an audience. Magician directs from a distance.

These are some of the most unusual effects ever developed for a stand-up performer. Effects your audiences haven't seen before. These routines are based on an ancient close-up effect that has been revised so it can be seen on the largest stage or in someone's living room. You can work this under any conditions with no angle problems or special props. Routines...

Devin Knight
Howard Thurston's Kid Hair Raising Trick by Devin Knight

A forgotten trick from the past that was first invented by Howard Thurston and used in his big show. The effect is that the magician invites up a boy from the audience and without touching the boy, he gestures toward the boy and the boy's hair stands on its end running from the front to back the back of his head, like a magical ripple. The hair falls down back to normal.

The magician raises his hand and the boy's hair once again stands on its end to the amazement of the audience. The magician quickly drops his hand and the boy's hair once again falls down, being normal again. The boy can then be used in...

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. The twelve objects are laid out in three horizontal rows. The object of the game is that the person left with the last item to pick up loses the game. You only play this game with one person at a time. The rules are simple. The player can only take from one row at a time. Take as many as you wish from either the first, second or third row, but you cannot pick from different rows until your next turn. Either you or the spectator can start...

East Coast Tour 2017: Lecture Note Bundle by Devin Knight

Each PDF fully explains how to make up each trick. To buy these tricks ready made from a magic dealer would cost over $300.00.

QUADRUPLE PREDICTION - An amazing mental effect where the magician correctly predicts cards and colors despite odds of over 16,000 to 1 against it. A real stunner you can close a show with.

Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick Grant
Massive Fire Bowl Production by Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick Grant

Available again after being off the market for over 50 years! One of the great effects in magic has been a production of a bowl of fire; but, most of the methods were not sure-fire and were too mechanical or worked with acid and other dangerous methods. Plus the fact that they were always small flat bowls that had to be carried under the magician's coat, etc.

Here is a sure fire non-mechanical or chemical method where the performer does not have to carry a body load and produces a large massive bowl of fire from beneath an unprepared foulard with no secret pockets.

The perfect sensational...

Grant's Challenge Magic Act by Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick Grant

The advertising and publicity possibilities with this act are unlimited. Challenge your friends or family to stump you. Advertise that if someone in the audience stumps you, then they don't pay your show fee. This will give you a competitive edge over other magicians in your area.

Donald Holmes
The Magic Art by Donald Holmes

The Magic Art is a book very much in the style of the Hoffmann books. It describes in particular the tricks invented or used by Mr. Holmes. Tarbell calls this book 'excellent' in the Tarbell Course. Holmes was a prolific author who wrote several other titles as well. In this volume he deals with all kind of props from pill boxes to cards, coins, handkerchiefs, gaffed glasses and the list continues.

Paul Fleming wrote:

In 1920, Donald Holmes announced his intention of writing a series of books which were to form "a complete library on the Art of Magic." Unfortunately, he abandoned the undertaking (for what reason we do not know)...

Right Under Your Nose by Douglas Francis

From the preface by John Ramsay:

The author, my friend Douglas Francis, has handed me part of the manuscript of this book, and he has also given me a personal demonstration of some of the effects described therein. Every trick proved entertaining and convincing in his capable hands, and, consequently, I can recommend them with every confidence to all exponents of "Close-up" Magic.

From the foreword:

As the title suggests, the contents of this book are confined to that type of effect that can be literally performed right under the nose of the spectator, in other words - Close Quarter...

Irresistible Close-Up Magic by Duraty

The best routines of a french magician well known for his creativity and efficiency.

Duraty says: "The effects gathered in this book represent more than 40 years of close-up performances. Endowed with just an average skill, I always gave preference to the most practical and easiest methods for I consider that effects are the only part that counts. I perform magic to amaze and surprise lay audiences rather than showing off in front of other magicians.

In my opinion, skill must remain hidden, flourishes and magical juggling demonstrations are not compatible with the idea I formed of magic,...

Impromptu by E. Brian MacCarthy

From the Foreword:

This is a book of impromptu effects. The word "impromptu" has been taken to mean that no apparatus nor fakes need be carried; the performer relies on obtaining one or two objects which either he will probably be carrying on his person, such as coins; or will most certainly be instantly available wherever he may be; such as cards. Simple preparation, as for instance tearing a slit in a borrowed envelope, is allowable, but no more. It is obvious that the word "impromptu" cannot mean "requiring no practice". Any effect, however simple, requires that. But as long as the reader...
