Modern coinmagic, where art thou?

Postby Guest » August 28th, 2005, 6:49 am

Im looking for some books about coinmagic. I already have the tapes with David Roth "Expert Coinmagic 1-3" and Richard Kaufmans "Coinmagic". Do any of you fellows have something to suggest that one has to look in to?

Modern Coin Magic, by J.B. Bobo. It is the BIBLE. You will never have time to learn it all, but it is the foundation to all coin magic.
Stay tooned.

There area all sorts of things in the Downs book, Modern Coin Manipulation and the Hoffmann books.

If you want MODERN, you could start with Buckley's book from a while ago, and compare to Kainoa Harbottle's recent offerings.

Before you head off in search of the "Bible", you might want to drop by the "Buffet" at the Magic Cafe. There's a collection of esteemed and talented columnists there, and me.

I'm using my space to do an annotation of Bobo's "Modern Coin Magic". One move at a time. I'm hoping you'll find it helpful, or at least, interesting.

is the place.

Hi Laudinger,
There's a new hardcover book on coin magic which I wrote. It's called 21st Century Coin Mechanics. Original sleights, routines, and full script illustrated with 315 black and white photos. Check out my web site for additional info:

The book was released August 15th and I've already shipped one of the books to one of your fellow countrymen in Sweden.
