The Genii Session

Postby Kevin Wiese » January 25th, 2008, 3:11 pm

In February's Genii Session with Roberto Giobbi, he writes that readers should let him know if they'd like more articles dealing with details of handling. I say definitely, yes.

Any details that I may have overlooked or forgotten are always welcome. I'll be referring to this article and the texts referenced frequently in my current practice sessions.

It's good to have a refresher course in techniques that have faded from my practice regimen.

I agree with Kevin. A refresher every now and then is welcome.

Yes, please, more of Roberto Giobbi's tips on handling. More of Roberto's tips on anything, really, but these collections of finesse are priceless. Where else are you going to get this kind of information?

Yes to more handling details. There were gems in this month's column.

Unsolicited plug: video clips of Roberto Giobbi demonstrating the sleights from Card College 1 and 2 can be found on the CD editions at Lybrary.com. Highly recommended.

I just finished reading the February column by Roberto Giobbi. It is spectacular.

The material is in the tradition of 'Card Finesse' -- tips, finesses, recommendations. These are all for experienced card magicians. While we can find many examples of easy-to-do magic, and some examples of hard-to-do magic, we rarely find a card expert taking the time to point out things he has discovered about things already in print, and this is what Mr. Giobbi has done.

For the serious student of card magic, this makes all the difference in the world It is perhaps the closest thing to personal instruction from an expert, and it is of inestimable value to me.

Thank you, Roberto Giobbi, for your gift. I hope you will continue to make the fruits of your knowledge and experience available to Genii readers.

Giobbi's articles in Genii are always educational and entertaining. I would currently love to read about Giobbi's presentation on Kollosal Killer. I understand he recently lectured about this in Canada, but we have yet to see it in print. Perhaps there are lecture notes?

I enjoyed this month's Genii Session as well and would definitely welcome more columns with this type of material.

Then again, as others have said, this is one of my favorite columns and it's always one of the first things I read when I get the magazine.
