Ted Annemann

#2 Magazines & Comics author

(22nd February 1907 - 12th January 1942)

Born in East Waverly, New York. Born Theodore John Squires, adopted by Stanley Anneman, Ted adding the second 'n' in 1930. Inspired at age 10 watching schoolmate do the Ball and Vase. Learned at age 14 when bought a Gilbert magic set. Debut c1925 at age c18 with the Doc Kries medicine show. Pro mentalist. Invented "Window Envelope" by 1931 and "Flat Rabbit" in 1937. Pet publicity stunt: "Bullet Catching". Voted one of the 10 Card Stars in 1938, although he was uncomfortable with sleights. Voted into the New York 'Inner Circle' by 1940. Founded-edited The Jinx 1934-41 and The Sign of Exceptional Magic 1935-35.

Best known for his contributions to the art of mentalism, he was an extraordinary card magician as well. Annemann was an extremely talented performer, but a very troubled person. His almost unbearable bouts of stage fright gave him an ironic advantage when performing mentalism. Sometimes he would be so upset that he would shake and break out into a sweat; his audiences thought that this was "proof" that he was putting forth incredible mental effort! Annemann was preparing an exhibition of the Bullet Catch when life became too much for him, and he committed suicide.

Ecco alcuni degli effetti contenuti nel lavoro:

TRASPOSIZIONE ISTANTANEA

Effetto. Sventagliando un mazzo di carte ben mischiato, il performer chiede ad uno spettatore di selezionare una carta e scrive le proprie iniziali sulla faccia della carta stessa. La carta selezionata è apertamente posta nella tasca dello spettatore. MAI FUORI DALLA VISTA. Essa non...

202 Methods of Forcing - with Victor Farelli Notes by Ted Annemann & Victor FarelliThis is the same ebook as 202 Methods of Forcing except this one additionally includes the personal notes of Victor Farelli.

Farelli's notes can roughly be categorized in three groups. One is attribution where he writes the inventor's name, or at least the one he thought originated this particular force. The second group is quality, where he writes attributes like 'very good', 'ingenious' etc. And the third group are extensions, variations or entirely new forces. Some of these entries are even dated and could be of particular interest to historians.

Although I think these notes are quite interesting, please...

The Master's Touch by Ted AnnemannTake out an originally sealed packet of cigarettes, open it and offer a cigarette to a spectator. The spectator can mark this cigarette in any way, perhaps with a small tear or a small dot with a pen. Then the spectator dumps his marked cigarette as well as all the other cigarettes from the packet into a hat or box or some other container and mixes the cigarettes thoroughly. As the hat is held above your eye level you take out one by one 19 cigarettes. None is the marked one, which is left inside the hat. No gimmicks. You end completely clean. A true Annemann miracle.

Annemann's Test of the Tiber by Ted AnnemannAnnemann has created a wonderfully direct telephone book test where he has eliminated faked books, pads, mathematical oddities, forcing decks and the thousand and one "foreign" objects that have been used in combination.

Sh-h-h--! it's a secret by Ted AnnemannAnnemann describes a wealth of forty pieces in this wonderful booklet. The first, "Call me up sometime" is a beautifully direct telephone miracle. This is a prime example of Annemann's mantra of 'effect before method'.

I found the following line from Annemann's introduction funny:

I like to do these things so well that someday I'm going to write a twenty page introduction and follow it with one trick! Trouble is, however, that after that harangue the trick will HAVE to be good.

The Book Without a Name by Ted AnnemannThis was the first book Annemann wrote. It has a glowing introduction by Al Baker, although later in their lives Al and Ted were not always the best of friends. As Annemann himself writes in the foreword, you will find routines employing simple methods and direct to-the-point presentations. This is mentalism at its best without any clutter confusing the effect. A few rare photos of Annemann performing can be found as well.
