New book: Card Delusions by Ryan Matney

Postby Ryan Matney » July 2nd, 2015, 3:42 am

Hi Everyone,

Announcing the release of my new book of card magic "Card Delusions".

It's over 60 pages, 54 photos and 16 routines. Some self-working, some impromptu, a mix.

It's only $25.00 with free shipping. You can read more about it and order at http://www.retrorocketmagic.com

Here's some comments I have received about this book:

“I have been a fan of Ryan’s for a while now. Card Delusions is a delightful book full of interesting card magic. If you like refined, semi-automatic methods (like I do) and thoughtful, occasionally quirky presentations (like I do), you will thoroughly enjoy this collection (like I did).”-John Bannon

“What I like about Ryan Matney’s card magic is the tight construction and his attention to detail. He understands what makes a trick work, and he takes the most direct route, eliminating unnecessary sleights, thus keeping his routines lean and mean.” — Peter Duffie

“Ryan’s material is cleverly thought and routined. It is my kind of material, no need to break your fingers to do good and commercial card magic.”- Aldo Colombini

"I've always admired Ryan's knack for creating simple, elegant and subtle miracles. These effects are no exception. They are gold!"-Cameron Francis

As of now, only available from the above website. Order today! :D

Ryan, how can you have a new book that has been commented on by Aldo Columbini since he's been deceased for quite a while.

I think you mean that those comments are general ones about your work, not about this book.

Hi Richard,

Good point. This book contains material that I've worked on and honed for years.

Aldo and I were friends and correspondents. On my word of honor, Aldo saw and commented on every trick in the book except one. (court card murder case)

The book has several suggestions and variations by him. So his quote is old but it is about this specific material before it was this book.

Peter Duffie, Cameron Francis, and John Bannon all read this exact new book and commented.

I've worked hard on this one, proofing, rewriting and hiring a pro to layout/design. Best one I've done yet.

and another new comment that I am just over the moon about:

"In Card Delusions the material is technically undemanding and presentationally whimsical. That's a good combination, and the result is card magic that's fun to do."- Max Maven
