Need some credit help and where it is...?

A place where beginners can participate, ask questions, and post their views. However, beginners typically ask a lot of questions about sources, tricks, books, and so on. In fact, all magicians are interested (or should be) in the provenance of tricks, ideas, and related matters. This department will service these needs.

I suggest you peruse/study the books below...
Most of your questions will be answered.

Expert at the Card Table (Erdnase)
Card Magic of LePaul (Paul LePaul)
Card Finesse (Racherbaumer)
Collected Works of Derek Dingle (Kaufman)
Secrets Draun from the Underground (Kaufman)
M.I.N.T. (Marlo)
Ultra Cervon (Cervon/Minch)

I offer no apologies for lack of exact credits/references; IMO these are GREAT books and should be 'required study' for any close-up/card enthusiast.

Good luck in your hunt.
