Whether you perform on the stage, platform, or for more intimate audiences, there's sure to be something you can use in this terrific ebook. The author and his friends, including Edward Saint, provide a plethora of entertaining illusions and mysteries that you'll be proud to perform.
We liked the original book, but felt the editing left something to be desired. Now with a modern face lift, these effects are ready to amaze your audiences. Includes a mix of straight and comedic magic involving cards, rope, silks, an escape, a livestock appearance that's as nice as anything you can buy from a dealer, a do-it-yourself Electric Deck, and lots more.
Fourteen effects in all are described, including an incredibly effective stage illusion that you can build yourself in an afternoon (pictured on the front cover).
