Princess on the Move by Ian Baxter

Who among us has not heard of, seen, or performed The Princess Card Trick? For the record, it was conceived by Henry Hardin and was first made available way back in 1903. Mahatma magazine carried advertising for it and in the decades that followed, countless 'improvements' ended up in print.

It seems that not too many of these ideas were ever celebrated by the magical fraternity, and no wonder - with crazy fakes and gimmicks being introduced that almost drowned its popularity.

Fortunately, the original idea has remained unchanged which is why today, it is still regarded as a classic of card magic. Beautifully simple, all it consists of is having a spectator mentally select one card from a group of five. The performer chooses one, then moments later reveals his choice has been correct. Simple, baffling, and in the right hands - memorable.

Princess On The Move is a brand new version of this truly outstanding effect. Australian cardman Ian Baxter has put together an easy, totally impromptu handling in this manuscript. Very limited skill is called for, with just one standard, very popular move employed.

Clever, astonishing, thought-provoking and priced at just $8.00.
