John Bannon Set
Smoke & Mirrors and Impossibilia (VHS)
$20 for both tapes, includes standard shipping.

Impossibilia:
John Bannon is one of the most popular creators of close-up magic and his routines are regularly used by most professional and hobbyist magicians. If you don't have a John Bannon routine in your repertoire you are missing out on direct, visual and impossible close-up magic.
On this video John Bannon teaches the best routines from his best selling book "Impossibilia: The Magic Of John Bannon." The routines taught on this program are currently being used by many of the leading close-up magicians. These are the routines that gave John a worldwide reputation. You will immediately add many of them to your working repertoire.
Routines performed and explained:
Shriek Of The Mutilated: A visual flash restoration of a torn piece of cigarette paper.
Stranger's Gallery: A selected card matches three prediction cards which visually change to odd backed colored cards. As a kicker ending the entire deck also changes its back color.
Play it Straight (Triumph): Bannon's outstanding no-sleight triumph routine where all the cards of the selected card's suit remain face up after three fair shuffles.
Vacuum Packed: A quarter magically penetrates a small sealed glass bottle and is visually removed through its tiny opening.
One is the Onliest: A one-coin routine where a signed borrowed Quarter vanishes, appears, and changes into a jumbo join. The signed coin is finally found in an impossible location.
Shock Treatment: A selected card and a thought-of card are found under impossible conditions. The selected card is counted to by the spectator and the thought-of card is found in your pocket.
Heart of the City: A selected signed card is lost in the deck. A second selection matches your three predictions. The signed selection is now found in a sealed envelope that has been in full view the entire time.
Directed Verdict: A spectator cuts the deck into four packets. The spectator turns the top card of each and shows them to be aces.
The Birnman Revelation: A visual instantaneous production of the four aces.
Shanghai Surprise: A half-dollar vanishes, appears, changes to an English penny, the half is reproduced and finally both coins change into Chinese coins.
Revolutionary Penetration: A Chinese coin is threaded and tied on a shoelace. The lace and coin are placed into a spectator's fist and impossibly separate.
Photo Logic: A small piece of photo paper is signed and placed in full view. A card is selected and a photograph is taken of it. An image of the selection appears on the signed photo paper.
Return of the Magnificent Seven: Seven duplicate cards are shown and a card is selected. Each and every one of the duplicates now changes into the selected card. Everything is examinable.
Running time: Approximately 90 minutes.

Smoke & Mirrors:
John Bannon is one of the most popular creators of close-up magic. His routines are regularly used by professional and hobbyist magicians. If you don't have a John Bannon routine in your repertoire you are missing out on professional caliber magic that is practical, commercial and fun to perform.
After the tremendous success of John Bannon's Impossibilia video and his best selling book "Smoke & Mirrors" John once again releases some amazing creations. The focus of this program is card magic that is direct, entertaining and never fails to fool. You will love the many easy-to-perform routines with novel premises and high impact.
Routines performed and explained:
Tattoo You: An easy routine where an initialed selected card matches a prediction. The initials are visually transferred to the prediction and it is given as a souvenir.
Detour De Force: Two predictions are placed in full view. Two cards are selected and match the predictions in the most unusual way.
Do The 'Twixt: A playing card is placed in the spectator's hand. Three cards are selected and returned to the deck. You magically cut to three cards. Two are the selections -- the third is not -- because the signed selection is in the spectator's hand.
Masquerade: A Joker assembly where the jokers vanish from individual packets and appear in a leader packet. As a kicker ending the jokers change into four aces.
Lessons Are Extra: A gambling demonstration where you apparently teach the techniques of card cheaters and continually deal winning poker hands to yourself.
Outer Limits: A spectator cuts a small packet of cards and thinks of one of them. You immediately tell them what they are thinking of.
New Jack City: Two cards are selected and lost in different parts of the deck. The four Jacks then find the selections in an impossible way.
Timely Departure: A spectator thinks of an hour while three cards are thought of. You name the though-of hour and spread the deck to show that the three selections are the only ones face-up.
Sheep To The Slaughter: A card cheating demonstration where the four aces are obviously dealt to yourself but when the hand is turned over it is the Royal Flush.
Call Of The Wild (performance only): A marketed routine where blank cards change to identical aces, four different aces and finally into a Royal Flush.
Trick Shot Production: A memorable routine that starts out with a selected card and ends with a surprise production.
Underhanded: A card is selected and then found in full view under an object on the table.
Running time: Approximately 90 minutes.
