MYSTIFICATION with its completely new selection of close up magic with cards, coins, etc. should be considered a must-have book. If you are at all interested in puzzling and visual close up magic you will want it.

This is a stellar collection of close-up magic! You may be familiar with Richard’s contributions in magazines such as The Linking RingThe Trapdoor or his other book, Close-Up Of The Damned. But this collection goes far beyond previous offerings. It is much larger, and the magic is outstanding. 

Contents include tricks based on the Moveable Hole theme, Magic Printing of Money, Coin Assemblies and Coin Changes. Plus chapters devoted to cut-and-restored/torn-and-restored effects and card effects with showy revelations. The biggest chapter in the book contains a variety of effects with matches, card on the necktie, paper money, three-card monte effects, business cards, ink pens and a clever prediction of two cards. If you like puzzling, visual close-up magic, this book is for you!! 34 complete tricks!
