Knowing the Chop Cup (Know-How Series)

Will Ayling

Knowing the Chop Cup (Know-How Series) by Will AylingThe Chop Cup turns a sleight-of-hand classic - the cups and balls - almost into a self working miracle. Of course, to perform a strong Chop Cup routine you will still need a good amount of sleight of hand and misdirection, but a lot of the 'work' is done by the cup itself.

Al Wheatley is credited with the invention of the Chop Cup. Will Ayling collects in this ebook a series of strong Chop Cup routines including Ken Brooke's routine.

This was part of the Supreme Know-How Series.

1st edition 1989; original 40 pages; PDF 56 pages.

Knowing The Rising Cards (Know-How Series)

Will Ayling

Knowing The Rising Cards (Know-How Series) by Will AylingSurprisingly little has been published in an encyclopedic form about the classic rising cards in English. You can find some in Greater Magic but the rest is spread out in many books and journals. Although this publication can hardly be called an encyclopedia, it is one of only two publications in English I know which are entirely dedicated to the rising card effect (the other being 25 Rising Card Tricks). It is a wonderful collection of a number of methods, described clearly with photos and illustrations. This was part of the Supreme 'Know How' series.

If rising cards are your thing you should also check out...

The Endless Chain (Know-How Series)

Rex Taylor & Will Ayling & Lewis Ganson & Fred Lowe

The Endless Chain (Know-How Series) by Rex Taylor & Will Ayling & Lewis Ganson & Fred LoweThis is not a magic trick but a carnival game, a con game, where the operator can decide if you should win or not. Everything looks fair and above board, but there is simply no chance for the mark to win. It looks so innocent, a ball-chain loop, put out on the table in a figure eight. One loop in the eight catches your finger the other does not. You have to find the one that catches your finger. Only problem is that you will never find it if the operator so decides.

This game is sometimes called Loopy Loop, Figure Eight, the Chain Swindle, or Pricking the Garter. You will find in this ebook...
