After three years of work, Lorenz Schär is proud to finally introduce Cards Against Reality. What began as a small booklet of ideas has evolved into a comprehensive exploration of some of Lorenz's most cherished card tricks and moves.
Written in English (and edited and revised by Steve Beam) this gorgeous hardcover book features more than 160 pages of insanely creative magic routines and sleight of hand moves that are clearly depicted through more than 100 detailed illustrations by Florian Aeschlimann. There are even some bonus magic theory concepts and non-card moves.
Nearly every magician can find something to benefit from within the contents of Cards Against Reality, which includes tricks and moves such as:
Longitudinal Slide Shift A practical shift for stand-up card magic that offers great angles and avoids any rushed or odd movements.
The Merrow-Shuffle A remarkably deceptive false table shuffle that is surprisingly simple to perform.
Satisfriction A comprehensive examination of jogs, and other various controls and new approaches.
Go-Stop A seemingly impossible version of the classic Stop trick.
One For Mr. Mayhew Lorenz's center deal routine, with a few incredible refinements.
All Bags A fun prediction routine where 51 cards are chosen (almost) freely.
Coincidencia Banal A mind-boggling Triple Coincidence routine that requires only one deck.
Kool and the Gang Lorenz's Follow the Leader Routine utilizing Giancarlo Scalia's Delight Switch
