Vernon Books

A place where beginners can participate, ask questions, and post their views. However, beginners typically ask a lot of questions about sources, tricks, books, and so on. In fact, all magicians are interested (or should be) in the provenance of tricks, ideas, and related matters. This department will service these needs.

What Vernon book would everyone recommend as the best? I'm talking about some classic card tricks of vernon's and moves that I would like to learn with cards. Such as slow motion aces, cutting the aces?

Thanks,
-David

Ganson's "The Dai Vernon Book of Magic" is a darned good start if you've already gone through "The Stars of Magic" etc.

Not nearly as good as the earlier books--that's the general consensus.

The Vernon Chronicles are now all available again from L&L Publishing and are very much worth owning.
