Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days

From the pen of one of the handful of magicians ever to be officially declared as "Dean of Magicians" by the Society of American Magicians comes one of the most complete overviews of modern magic ever written. Containing detailed instructions for hundreds of sleights, illusions, and flourishes, the Modern Magic Manual will guide those already familiar with the basic concepts of conjuring to new heights of skill and perfection of the art.

Find in this work the sleights, routines, and effects for items as varied as coins, balls, watches, silks, thimbles, rings, cigarettes, flowers, ropes, mentalism, cards-and even rabbit-out-the-hat magic

Filled with routines, patter, suggestions, and explanations of effects and devices used in everyday magic, this book provides a comprehensive rounding off to any magician's repository of skills and is a "must-have" for any serious amateur or professional prestidigitator. This new edition has been completely reset, contains all 273 original illustrations now digitally enhanced and enlarged, and a new index of tricks
