After years of magicians calling for Terry LaGerould to put out a new book, it's here! With more than 60 pages containing 17 card effects, and more than 35 photos, you'll easily learn these routines!
Back in 1992, many magicians were first exposed to Terry LaGerould's unique approach to card magic in a book called, Pasteboard Presentations. This book, now out of print, is still being sought after by many magicians.
For those unfamiliar with Terry LaGerould, the hallmark of his magic is efficient, innovative use of standard moves combined with highly commercial presentations. All the material in Pasteboard Presentations II comes directly from Terry's repetoire, and has been perfected over years of performing at major casinos in Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe and Reno.
In this book, you'll find both original effects, and classics of magic taken in startling new directions! You'll find self-working effects for the novice, as well as challenging effects for advanced magicians, including:

Royal Victory - A selected 5 card poker hand is changed into a Royal Flush
