US Playing Card magic site

Postby Charlie Randall » February 25th, 2017, 9:44 am

For those that haven't seen it, US Playing Cards has a site dedicated to magic. Besides interviews with some well know magicians, it shows how to make a hypercard:

That's cool of USPCC to create a magic section on their site.

Charlie, you knew that mentioning hypercards would compel me to respond! Pavlov would be proud and drooling.

I wrote the standard reference guide of hypercards, The HyperCard Project. (2006). I still have a handful of copies of the second print run of the book and gaffs for my "Son of Hyper-Warp" effect.

I'm just saying.



Thanks,

Tom

Thanks for posting the link Charlie - I've always loved hypercard - had hypercard business cards at one point. Was it inspired from Monday magic lunch? Great site. I'm sure I'll spend too much time pouring through it, LOL!

Rob, sorry for the tardy response. I've been out of town digging up fossils (literally) with my daughter's class for the last 10 days or so. But no this didn't come up from the Monday lunches! I was kind of sorry to see the hypercard information on the site, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

And Tom, wasn't your hypercard routine also printed along with a set of gimmicks in your latest book, the one that's gotten lots of great reviews! (subtle plug)

Yes it is, yes they are and yes it has! (blatant thanks)
