Rating: ★★★★★ (Date Added: Tuesday 17 February, 2015)

Handbook of Card SleightsThis is a fine book that contains some excellent moves and methods. The instruction is clear and concise. I had an original copy and am pleased to see it back. It is one rung of the magical ladder you Must have.

A Topological Trio

reviewed by William Lainsbury (confirmed purchase)
Rating: ★★★★★ (Date Added: Saturday 31 January, 2015)

A Topological TrioThough T&R is well thought out it is almost identical to HOODWINKS version from the Abra series in the 60's. Doug Hood used MELROSE which meant that ANY card could be used with any OTHER card. This is the version I have used for 40+ years and as it does not require extensive preparation is the one I will continue with.

Afghan bands is a classic and this routine is a top liner for kids who can handle scissors...too much work for most magicians...which suits me fine.

Time Warp is another from way back and again this version almost images that shown to me by Ralf Wichman (Braco)...for those NOT familiar with magic of the past...You won't waste your cash.

Table-Hopping Cups and Balls

reviewed by William Lainsbury (confirmed purchase)
Rating: ★★★★ (Date Added: Wednesday 14 January, 2015)

Table-Hopping Cups and BallsClear, concise, compact and effective. This routine is easily extended, or incorporated, into other set pieces. To appreciate the nice flow you need the props in hand as you run through each phase. Nice job Scott. This one will be used, and often.

Trucchi Divertenti per Bimbi Intelligenti

reviewed by William Lainsbury
Rating: ★★★★★ (Date Added: Saturday 13 December, 2014)

Trucchi Divertenti per Bimbi IntelligentiJust a few points to clarify. As the writer of this book which was edited by Ken and published by Edwin of Supreme magic I am amazed at the many odd copies have turned up. This being in another tongue begs the question with whose permissions and when? Secondly on the original copies Edwin had used the name BENBOW instead of thecvorrect spelling BENBO..and in the header introduction to this book the seller has billy benbo(Billllainsbury) which should of course read Bill Lainsbury.

The Triple

The TripleStop! every bit of the handling several times before tossing this aside as being involved or difficult. IT IS NOT.

The routine is a masterpiece of constructed sequences which is SIMPLE..hard hitting and a working mans dream.

Cameron Francis..this is MAGIC!!!

Ponsin on ConjuringIf you want to know WHERE the effects of today came from then you would find none better than this little Gem.

If you want to be the best in what you do then the History of your subject should be the first step on the road.

Take this walk through time and Enjoy.

2 As 4 Count

reviewed by William Lainsbury (confirmed purchase)
Rating: ★★★★ (Date Added: Tuesday 28 October, 2014)

2 As 4 CountA very useful handling from the Lybrary which has many uses. The demo sequence does take some hard looking and dissecting to get what is required in the handling but once you do get the fingers and flow action running looks really natural.

It took about an hour to get it as shown in the clip.

I give it four as I feel the clip should slow up the finger sequence a little more clearly.

Go forth and spend your pennies..its well worth it.
