No Jacket Required: The Tiepit by Enrico Varella

As seen on the Bob Fitch Topit Workshop DVDs (Bob Kohler Magic).

"I've always thought this was a great idea, and a much-needed addition to the whole jacket-bound Topit saga." - Lewis Jones, Author of Ahead of the Pack, Seventh Heaven and Encyclopaedia of Impromptu Card Forces

"It looks really good - Lots of very useful material. In many ways, you are selling it short by calling it the Tiepit book as it contains a wealth of information well beyond that particular idea. You may want to add a subtitle which lets the buyer know how much additional information is in the book." - Jay Scott Berry

Tiepit has been held 'underground' for many years. It was shared with a handful of magicians, and now released to the magical community for the first time! Prior to this, Tiepit was described briefly in Bob Fitch's Topit Workshop DVDs. In effect, it is a jacket-less solution to the topit. It can be simply set up within 30 seconds. Performers can execute topit techniques without a jacket.

The author has compiled an exhaustive history on the topit, trusting that authors and originators are fully credited and acknowledged. Enrico is grateful for the foreword written by both Bob Fitch and Lewis Jones, who have inspired him to expand on his original ideas, and write this ebook.
