Die Wichtigsten Kunstgriffe des Kartenkünstlers by Ottokar FischerVon der Vorbemerkung:
Es gibt Kartenkunststücke, die ohne viel Übung vorgeführt werden können. Ihre Anzahl ist jedoch eine beschränkte. Wer sich aber der Mühe unterzieht einige spezielle Kunstgriffe zu erlernen, dem erschließt sich eine unerschöpfliche Fundgrube neuer überraschender Karten-Experimente.

Die Zahl der bestehenden Kartenkunstgriffe ist eine sehr große, aber verhältnismäßig nur wenige sind erforderlich, um ein relativ guter Kartenkünstler zu werden. Auf Grund meiner langjährigen praktischen Erfahrung habe ich in vorliegender Broschüre die wichtigsten Kunstgriffe,...

The Magic of J. N. Hofzinser by Johann Nepomuk Hofzinser & Ottokar Fischer & Richard HatchDespite Hofzinser's wish to have all his apparatus and magic records destroyed, a lot has been preserved because his wish was never carried out. Ottokar Fischer wrote two books in German about Hofzinser: Kartenkünste and Zauberkünste. This ebook here is Richard Hatch's authoritative translation of the Zauberkünste book.

[A translation of Kartenkünste is also available as ebook from us: Hofzinser's Card Conjuring.

Kartenkünste focuses exclusively on card magic, whereas Zauberkünste deals with everything else.

This ebook describes more than 80 effects created by Hofzinser including more than 100 photos and illustrations....

Hofzinser's Card Conjuring by Johann Nepomuk Hofzinser & Ottokar FischerHofzinser was born at the beginning of the 19th century and lived in Vienna during a time called the 'Biedermeier'. This was a time where people enjoyed art and entertainment in drawing-room presentations and at little receptions in the houses and villas of the rich and famous. Hofzinser thus never performed on a stage but perfected the branch of magic today known as 'Close-up'. One could argue that Hofzinser is the grandfather of close-up magic in particular close-up card magic. And this book is all about card magic. We have to thank Ottokar Fischer for collecting Hofzinser's material about...
