The anthology compiled and edited by Anthony Brahams, Ken Brooke's Magic Place
is terrific, and well worth the effort to find a copy. There are several other books of Ken's magic (Derek Lever's " Ken Brooke & Friends"
(1986) and Harry Stanley's "Ken Broke's Magic - The Unique Years
" (1980). Anthony Brahams says in his introduction:
Nevertheless in spite of the wealth of material in the above books I felt that the superb abundance from "The Magic Place" should be recorded in book form. I do not just refer to the instruction sheets inssued but also to any other "output" from Ken Brooke that could be traced - the "After Sales Service", both officially, in the form of additional instruction sheets, and informally, by letters and personal tuition or information hints given by Ken.
But, that having been said, the description therin of The Working Performer's Card in Wallet
will not give you any insight into Fred Kaps's presentation. It is a description of the Kaps wallet and how to use it; no routine is suggested.
There is a biography of Fred Kaps compiled by Freddie Jelsma call Fred Kaps, A Retrospective
, but I don't think describes the routine. Does anyone know if his routine is included on the Fred Kaps DVD
or his Lecture CD
Here are three useful references for more information on card-to-wallet:
Pete Biro, can you help us out with more Fred Kaps info?
