Magic Book

I am looking for a book that was released a few years ago for the general public. I believe it was entitled "the Magic Book" or "the magic Show". The author was/is Mark Settaducatti (or something similar - please forgive the possible misspelling) and I believe Sue Miller. Any inf...

Re: Interactive Magic

I am also looking for some sort of magic effect that can be included in a holiday card. Not something that can be given away (like fortune telling fish) but rather actually built into the card. One of my thoughts was the classic baby gag (obviously redesigned and re-illustrated to suit the card) Can...

Linking rings

I am looking to create a 3 ring routine. Can anyone give me references. I am familiar with some of the classics with more than 3 rings, but I really like the simplicity of 3. Any help is appreciated.

Re: Strolling ... vs... Stationary

I am curious about the idea of being stationary as opposed to strolling. One of the advantages to strolling is the fact that one's material can be repeated several times throughout the event, each time for a different group. Thusly allowing the performer to carry his/her props on their person. If on...

Re: Card in Sock

Jason,

I personally used the card in sock for a close up contest several years ago. It got a killer reaction! I would definately recommend the trick, however in a restaurant it may be a bit cumbersome. You will have to have some tailoring done as well. Just my two cents. All the best. Peace

Re: Ambitious Ending

At the end of my ambitious sequence, I produce the signed card folded under my watch. It's easily as powerful as the wallet and I can do it any time (assuming I'm wearing my watch). I've also played around with loading it under a spectators watch.
