Hello to All,
Great to be back on the forum. Several of you helped me out a couple of years ago with my entry into magic by recommending some great titles.
Anyhow, I will be starting grad school to eventually become a history professor and was perusing web sites a while ago and came accross this one: Crispin Sartwell's Conjuring Page
I was intrigued because this gentleman is a professor who offered a 200 level class on conjurung and illusion. Therefore, this got me thinking about cards. So, if you all were able to produce a course courses on card magic that takes the student from the very beginning stages of card magic to much more difficult feats, what would your choices of textbooks be?
I hope this isn't a silly exercise, I was just curious as to what you all think. So, if you have a moment, please have fun with it. What are your picks for undergrad, grad, and PhD card studies. (I am sure alot of folks will reference Card College and unfortunately I have not bought those yet.)
My picks that have taken me through my first two years of study are Royal Road and Expert Card Tecnnique. I also have The Expert at the Card Table, Annemmann's Card Magic, and Fulves Self-Working but I only dabble in those.
