The content looks very interesting for card workers. ... ll&id=1717


One Hand Shuffle Force
Can you force a selected card while performing a one-handed shuffle? This force has fooled every magician that has seen it!

Can you palm a card completely exposed without fear of detection? Imagication has deceived the sharpest eyes in magic.

Poker Deal From The Box
Can you stack a deck for a game of poker while the cards are still in the card case? Imagication can show you how.

Do you know that by purposely exposing the two-handed shift it will be more deceptive than ever thought possible?

Card Rise Just In Case
How many times have you put a deck away in the card case? Millions of times! Did it ever occur to you to do it differently?

Can you peek and injog a card in the middle of the deck while cutting the deck with one hand, without any telltale signs?

And this is just the start. There are many other sleights and tricks in Imagication.

Perhaps it's a reprint? Magic books by post have it on their site for a very good price; I believe Dan and Dave got the one hand deck spin from this book.

The original was published by Murphy himself (Murphy's Magic Market -- not the same as Murphy's Magic Supplies).

I hadn't thought about the book in a long time, until Bob Swadling recommended it at a talk he gave at the Magic Circle Library on his favorite books.
