One Man Circus Sideshow by Dave Arch

Lewis Ganson
The Art of Close-Up Magic Volume 1 by Lewis Ganson

Probably the greatest collection of close-up tricks ever assembled. And no card tricks are included in this first volume. It is so important not only because of its size (see the humongous table of contents below) and quality, but because the author has gone beyond the mere explanations of tricks and routines. The opening chapter, 'The Presentation of Close-Up Magic', embraces the whole approach to close-up performance. Includes hundreds of illustrations by Dennis Patten.

Devin Knight
How To Make Your Eyes Flash by Devin Knight

A classic effect from the early days of magic catalogs. An effect that every kid wanted to order so he could impress his friends. Ads for this trick appeared in early Boy's Life and in comic books. It's an effect that is still effective today but is almost forgotten.

It is a little known secret that is even being used by some rock bands today to make their eyes flash during concerts.

Here is the ad copy from an early Vick Lawston magic catalog.

EFFECT: Create a real magical effect! Used by many magicians. By simply blinking your eyes open and shut, it seems as if streaks of lightning...

Val Andrews
Simplicity, Audacity and Bluff by Val Andrews

This could very well be Val Andrew's most important work. He describes with several great examples and historical effects, how one can entertain and amaze employing nothing but simple audacious ruses or outright bluffs. If there is a showman in you, you will love these effects and ideas. If you rather rely on your bottom deal and classic pass, then you will probably not be able to appreciate the value of this information.

  • Taking advantage of the situation
  • The uses of a "magician" as an assistant
  • On the use of "stooges"
  • Giving the cue...
  • A bluff-pass
  • Two bluff card rises
  • Bluff wand vanishes ...
