MINT 1964 Annotated by Edward Marlo & Wesley James

Thanks to Wesley James, M.I.N.T III, IV, V, VI, and M.I.N.T. 1963 Annotated are already available. The move toward the availability of the entire run of Marlo In New Tops material with Wesley's extensive annotations and supplemental Bonus material is well underway. The material in this volume is extraordinary. This volume includes 13 articles - something for almost everyone - with themes: Seven months are focused on technique. Two of the techniques were truly ground breaking. Both ATFUS and FUFU were revolutionary. Marlo also extends his exploration of the powerful and intriguing Incomplete Faro. One technique that dates back to 1939 is a novel coin vanish. In this, the first full year of Marlo's material in New Tops, you will find innovation and ground-breaking plots, sleights, and subtleties, that have been largely unavailable since the run of the New Tops ended, notwithstanding the flat text of L & L's MINT I and MINT II. If those books had been sufficient, Ed's material would already be far better understood and in wider use. Thus, after completing the task of fulfilling Ed Marlo's expressed wishes with M.I.N.T III through VI, keeping Eddie's material available "for the guys." Now, Wesley brings his insights to Ed Marlo's earlier New Tops articles.

If you truly want to understand, benefit from, and incorporate Ed Marlo's material as only those who knew him well can, these are books you will want to own and will treasure for years to come. In tribute to Ed, Wesley wanted these volumes to offer much more, hence his annotations, clarifications, corrections - both logical and grammatical - plus his personal Notes. Some of those Notes are complimentary, some critical, but all are informative.

As Wesley has often stated, "One can't perform card magic without a tip of the hat to Ed Marlo." Wesley's friend of more than 25 years, Ed Marlo inspired a wealth of material that Wesley developed, massaged, enhanced and adapted through his performance experience. Among Wesley's creations are full routines inspired by the Marlo techniques, built on Marlo foundations, and routines - many for the first time in any source.

If you're devoted to card magic, you need to own these volumes and study them closely. The combination of clarified Marlo material, Wesley's insightful Notes, and the original Wesley James routines create and should continue to enhance Marlo's legacy for those that absorb them, and students of Wesley James material will want to explore that material in depth.

If you already own MINT III through VI, and M.I.N.T. 1963 Annotated, you'll now be able to expand your file of Marlo In New Tops with more than flat text. At the same time, you'll add to your collection of Wesley James' creations, and benefit from his detailed descriptions, analysis, and historical perspective. Rarely have volumes offered so much to those who are serious about their card magic. Some of what you'll read is easy while some is more technically challenging, but it's all been made practical so you can add it to your repertoire.

The entire collection, plus corrected illustrations, and Wesley added Notes and bonus material are all in this volume. The ebook price is just $40 and, as you'll see from the Table of Contents below, you'll want to learn all it offers.

Don't wait to be blown away by this mix of older Marlo material and Wesley James' insightful Notes and cutting-edge creations. It's all here for you now.
