Illusions, Escape & Stage

The best illusionists of today, Lance Burton, David Copperfield, Penn & Teller, Siegfried & Roy and Criss Angel all use the same principles of deception you can learn here in these ebooks. They might have more stage hands and bigger stages, but the principles and methods are well known and you can learn about them. And concerning escapes, nobody has reached more popularity than Harry Houdini. Even decades after his death his name still is familiar and people know who he is. His magic was lousy his escape work and public relations acumen are unmatched. David Blaine tries to take Houdini's place, but boy does he have a long way to go to reach the master.

Scott Creasey

Escape: Underwater Handcuff Escape by Scott CreaseyKnown for his work in the field of mentalism, it may come as a surprise (unless you attended his first lecture tour), to know that Scott Creasey performed his first underwater handcuff escape in 1976 at just twelve years of age and that during the early part of his career he spent as much time hanging upside down wrapped in chains, tied in packing cases and struggling to escape from various types of handcuffs, as he did reading minds.

In this ebook for the very first time, Scott explains the various methods he used for his underwater handcuff and chain escapes to gain publicity during those...

Derek Lever & Jack Hughes

Jack Hughes World of Magic Volumes 1, 2 and 3 by Derek Lever & Jack HughesThe trilogy contains all of Jack Hughes creations, a staggering amount of illusions, apparatus and props. Each illusion comes with drawings that depict its construction and its main dimensions. While the drawings and sketches do show all the pertinent details, these are not blueprints that have every little dimension spelled out. Nevertheless, anybody who has built a box before will have no problem in building any of these apparatus. It is a tremendous source book for ideas for any prop builder and illusion builder.

Derek Lever & Jack Hughes

Jack Hughes World of Magic Volume 1 by Derek Lever & Jack HughesJack Hughes was a master builder and craftsman who created and built props for some of the biggest names in magic for decades. Most of the items he built were his own inventions. The few that were not he most often improved significantly.

Particular Howard Thurston receives a lashing from Jarrett. This book has a refreshing honesty and directness that is missing from most other magic books. Jarrett even describes a few card effects and other parlor tricks he has performed.

Devin Knight & Al Mann

Al Mann's Sensational Boiler Escape: A Psychic Dematerialization by Devin Knight & Al MannA rare insight into Al Mann's least-known manuscript, The Sensational Boiler Escape. In 1987, Mann revised this effect and sold the exclusive rights to Devin Knight as a unique demonstration of psychic powers to be used on a TV show. The effect was as follows:

The performer is visibly locked into an examined metal boiler, which is then filled with boiling water! The performer claims he will be able to survive the scalding waters because of his psychic powers. The level of the water is seen rising on the indicators and the temperature is recorded on the boiler's thermometer.

Paolo Maria Jacobazzi

360 Degree by Paolo Maria JacobazziYou are probably familiar with the "Head Twister" act. This can be presented to the audience in a serious or comic way, however, it has always been done with obsolete objects such as boxes with knobs, boxes with oriental designs, sequins, and so on. Paolo thought to use a modern object: a motor-cycle helmet! It is a common object of everyday use!

The conjuror or his assistant sits and puts on the helmet and from this moment the magic begins. The helmet and person's head, which is visible, is rotated 360° various times. At the end of this demonstration the assistant stands, the conjuror blocks...

Mike Danata

Floating Golden Stick by Mike DanataA golden stick floats in the air without any means of support. A hoop is passed across and around the stick yet it still floats until finally at the command of the magician it travels away from him, at least six feet, and gently comes to rest upon a table.

This effect can be performed in a large drawing room or whilst completely surrounded. It is a one man floating effect and no assistants are required. It should not be confused with the Finn Jon Floating Stick which uses an entirely different method. With this routine the stick actually floats away from the magician and if performed on a...
