Product Description

This timeless material finally gets the treatment it deserves. The greatest collection of close-up tricks ever assembled between two covers, and Volume 1 has no card tricks included. Volume One's opening chapter, The Presentation of Close-Up Magic, embraces the whole approach to close-up performance. Hundreds of original illustrations by Dennis Patten. Volume Two features Phoa Yan Tiong's fantastic Cut and Restored Silk, Al Spackman's eerie and very baffling Miniature Rapping Hand, Rink's fabulous acrobatic Paper Clips and One Cup, Two Balls, Horace Bennett's Dissimilar Coin Thru Table, Bobby Bernard's terrific coin routine, Melted and Mirage, Jens Korth's brilliant Gambling Routine with Poker Chips, Lewis Ganson's tribute to Dai Vernon - Three Rings for Vernon. Hardbound, printed on acid-free paper, matching endsheets.
