Impuzzibles by Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

You will learn the secrets and get detailed video instructions of how to make four impressive 'impossible' objects.

  • Spider Link
  • Checker Board
  • The Needle
  • Fork on Card
The Needle will impress anybody who ever tried to guide a thread through the eye of a sewing needle. To do this with one thread is often hard enough, but to do it with 20 or more threads certainly looks impossible. The secret is ingenious. You do not need anything special, no special tool or special contraption to accomplish this feat. It is all in the know-how, which you can acquire here.

The Fork on Card will impress...

Eugene E. Gloye

Table Book II by Eugene E. GloyeA beautifully illustrated ebook on tables and side stands for you to build. Gene Gloye uses the tag line, "without drapes", because all the tables described are used in many ways, but without cloth drapes.

The ebook begins with several pages of discussion on stage furniture and its possibilities, with illustrated advice on transporting it, plus storing it. The various multi-panel and single panel tables described in detail, with easy to follow building plans, often have diabolically clever "black art wells" and other secret devices. A "Night Club Table" is so simple and so useful, and so...

Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

Impossible Braid Plus Variations by Ralf (Fairmagic) RudolphThis is for advanced folders only, those who want to tackle some of the most difficult and at the same time most beautiful impossible folds there are. Ralf has developed a new method for the Robert E. Neale braided banknote which he is teaching on this video. He will also teach you variations to the braided banknote theme.

However the highlight of the video is the most astounding braid for the Borromean Cube. For this object there was no folding method in existence at all, until Ralf tackled the problem and came up with a remarkable solution. Please note that there is no cutting and gluing involved. (The...

Ulysses Frederick Grant

A Table Lamp Floats by Ulysses Frederick GrantThis is included in Grant's Lost Illusion Secrets.

At last, anyone can own a floating lamp. You can have one right in your living room or den with no special lamp to buy. Yes, one of the lamps sitting around your home now can be made into a floating lamp for a few dollars.

EFFECT: Spectators see an ordinary lamp sitting on a table. You produce a covering cloth and place it over the lamp. The lamp then seems to float right up into space, high over their heads or down near the floor in a very strange manner. After its flight, it glides back to the table and once again comes to rest. This is actually what they see,...

Dave Arch

Electronic Buzz Box by Dave ArchAlthough you can find versions of these Electronic Monte boxes for sale on magic websites, I could not find one large enough for my needs nor one that included a buzzer (not just a light). So I built my own. In spite of the fact that my electronic knowledge only involves the ability to insert a plug into an outlet, I built my own the first time in under an hour for around $20.

The premise is simple. From among multiple buttons, you win if you can find the button that lights the light and sets off the buzzer. With the diagram included in my instructions you aren't limited to only three buttons...

William Lee

Solar Wind by William LeeSolar 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...

Say Cheese by Peter PrevosEffect: The magician shows a piece of cardboard that resembles a cheese wedge: "This is not a piece of cheese, it is the cardboard cut-out of a piece of cheese". "It is a piece of Dutch cheese. You can recognise this as the holes run horizontally". The magician shows the card on both sides. "What is the difference between Dutch and Swiss cheese?", she asks the audience. She places the card in her fist, indicates the moment of magic, and reveals the card again.

Alexander de Cova

Locked Books 01: The Invisible Topit by Alexander de CovaAn improvement on the classic TOPIT device.

For years many have been using the TOPIT gimmick. Michael Ammar made the sewn-in-type TOPIT popular. All those years Alexander de Cova was always thinking whether it might be possible to hide the bag (or better: the bag's opening and the edge) in the jacket. After becoming acquainted with the works of Tommy Wonder and his breakthrough concerning the tails TOPIT, things clicked together.

Tommy's system inspired de Cova to apply the principle to a regular TOPIT. The result is that this TOPIT can't be seen, because there is no visible edge.

In this ebook de Cova...

Devin Knight

Gyrater: Floating and Spinning Deck by Devin KnightThe performer has a card selected, no force, and returned to the deck. The deck is shuffled and 7 or 8 cards are dealt face down into an arc shape. The performer introduces his card case and says this is his pet, CASEY. Casey is well trained and can find selected cards. That is because he is a pointer. (Pun Intended.) The performer holds the card case above his hand and says, "Casey stay." The card case remains suspended in the air. The performer says, "Chase your tail." The deck revolves 360 degrees in the air. Performer says, "Play dead," the card case drops into his hand.

This coating is used by the biggest playing card manufacturers. It produces a wonderfully smooth and slick surface. The cards will fan and shuffle perfectly. The bottle has a flip top that makes dispensing a brease. You will be able to coat at least 50 sheets (front and back) with one bottle.

I have tried and tested many other ways to coat playing cards but none even comes close to this coating. This is real playing card coating. Anything else is a bad substitute.

Ulysses Frederick Grant

Window Stoppers by Ulysses Frederick GrantThis ebook describes store window displays which are magical in one way or another causing pedestrians to stop and look into the window. Once a person stops and looks at the display the chances for them to actually enter the store have dramatically increased.

Several of these contraptions use magic principles. One can think of them as magic apparatus displayed in action. Although these displays could be employed by pretty much any store, I would think that they would be most appropriate in the window of a real magic store. I have never seen any magic store use anything like this. An innovative...

This is an ebook on enabling miracles with electronics. Magicians have always used the latest technology to create their wonders. Claude Klingsor from Belgium has specialized in using electronics to create miracles.

This is a magic ebook for engineers, inventors and tinkerers. The fact that these notes were written in the late 80s means that you won't find any microcontrollers, but that is also the charm of this ebook. The circuits are very easy to...
