Here are 12 more mind-blowing Bob Hummer close-up and parlor puzzlers that will entertain most any audience. From the brilliant mind of Bob Hummer comes this tasty helping of magic and mental mysteries using cards, a spoon, and even a 6 x 6 checkerboard. Some of these offerings were originally sold as separate manuscripts and are now out of print.
Also included in this volume are the effects that made up Hummer's 3 Trix booklet in 1947, which has been out of print for decades. Now you can add these great tricks to your performing arsenal before the other magicians in your area get them. We've searched far and wide to add these twelve effects to this compilation. Now you can get them all in this updated and corrected edition. And as usual with Hummer creations, each of these miracles seems utterly impossible, yet they work every time. Just the ticket for get-togethers, parties, business luncheons, press meetings, cocktail lounges, - anywhere people gather.
