Re: Your Suggestions for the New Edition of Greater Magic

Eoin, there are already sections in the book on various types of gimmicked cards, but they are generally for wide type use. In other words, double-backed, double-faced, and so on--things you can use in many tricks.
Do you have something specific in mind?

Edwin, you can dip into the Jennings book at any point if you have some background in card work. There might be a reference to something described earlier, but those things are easy to look up. Enjoy it!

Re: Your Suggestions for the New Edition of Greater Magic

Card tricks from the 1930s are equally as valid as they were then--you can still perform them.
Where can one perform cigarette magic except perhaps on the street or in a private home full of smokers (and then you're talking only about close-up magic, not manipulations).

Your Suggestions for the New Edition of Greater Magic

Folks, I am now into my deep dive on the new and expanded edition of Greater Magic, scheduled for completion at the end of 2022. The new edition will contain most of the material from the original (does anyone need 40 pages of instruction on cigarette tricks now or in the future--what do you think?)...
