Sid Lorraine's Scrap Book

Sid Lorraine

Sid Lorraine's Scrap Book by Sid Lorraine
"Sid Lorraine has always been an idol of mine. Oh, I've been through fads like: Ed Marlo, Leo Behnke, Bro. Hamman, Tom Palmer, Don Alan ... even Jay Marshall! But, I always come back to Sid Lorraine. Whenever I've needed an idea or inspiration, my library of Sid Lorraine books or my files of his tricks and variations have provided both and more." - Ron Bauer
Sid Lorraine made his reputation as a writer and performer with a keen eye for the commercial. Sid's material, honed over a lifetime of performing, could be counted on show after show, year after year, to entertain his audiences. That's what magic is all about.

Thumb Fun

Devin Knight & Sid Lorraine

Thumb Fun by Devin Knight & Sid LorraineThis was one of Sid Lorraine's most popular tricks. It has been off the market for more than 40 years. Devin Knight obtained permission from the Abbott Magic Company to release this again and to update the original directions. How good is this effect? Well, it was one of the late Doug Henning's favorite tricks and was personally taught to him by Sid. Doug Henning used it everywhere, including in some of his touring stage shows, showing it on a big screen behind him.

Peking Revelation

Devin Knight & Sid Lorraine

The late Sid Lorraine designed several novel paper folding tricks. These papers were folded to reveal various pictures or messages. Most of these were released in the mid-50s. By far, the best was called Chinese Folder. This item has been long forgotten and was discontinued by the Abbott Magic Company more than thirty years ago. Devin Knight has received permission from the company to release this item again and updated the presentation...

Sid Lorraine

Sid Lorraine

Sid Lorraine by Sid LorraineThis 60 minute recording includes the very best of the great Sid Lorraine. This is a happy mix of talk about magicians, how he got started in magic, heavily interspersed with magic you can do. There is a substitute for the pass, a gold fish bowl production (without the bowl), a card trick that baffled Blackstone.

Craige Snader in Magic Sounds said: "...it is great value as you get a magic lecture by one of the greats that you can listen to over and over. A great tape for study or just pleasant listening."
