Magic Tricks: A Step-By-Step Guide to Illusions, Sleight of Hand, and Amazing Feats
With a foreword by David Copperfield * There's nothing like performing magic--and there's nothing like plodding through a text-heavy book on the subject whose illustrations don't quite do the trick. By the publisher of Genii: The Conjuror's Magazine, this book packs 450 full-color, step-by-step photographs, many from the magician's point of view, plus advice on how to patter with an audience while pulling off mind-blowing deceptions, illusions, and sleights of hand. From simple to advanced, and using household and inexpensive props, Knack Magic Tricks includes tricks using cards, coins, handkerchiefs, and fruit, as well as mental tricks, anytime tricks, standup tricks, and tricks especially for kids (to be performed both for them and by them).
