Ulterior Motifs

Peter Duffie

Ulterior Motifs by Peter DuffieTwenty card tricks from the inventive Scotsman.

1st edition, 1992.

THOSE ENIGMATIC ROYALS: A simple idea based on the Vernon 'Card Puzzle' and inspired by Peter Kane's 'Royal Families' from his booklet A Further Card Session, plus Roy Walton's "Split Up" from The Complete Walton, Vol.1.

A SENSE OF FREEDOM: This is based on a number prediction by Shigeo Futagawa using four pieces of cardboard (See "Stunumbers" in Karl Fulves' Self-Working Number Magic, Dover).

Hand Shadows

Henry Bursill

Hand Shadows by Henry Bursill... But figuring out the exact finger positioning is not a simple matter; some shapes are quite difficult to obtain. The author of this delightful picture book of hand shadows spent long hours working out the figures in this book. By following his clear visual instruction (each of the 18 figures in the book is explained by a full-page illustration that shows you the precise positioning for fingers and hands), you can create a boy, camel, goose, deer, grandpa, bunny, bird in flight, ... After you have mastered these, it will be a simple matter to invent shadows of your own.

Parents can use this book to amuse their youngsters, or to teach them to recognize the various animals and other objects pictured here. A distinctly Victorian flavor adds considerable period charm to this collection of original designs.
