David Drake earned his living performing close-up magic for over 25 years. In this book, he has released 20 of his most commercial and entertaining routines — off-beat, original and innovative tricks.
The tricks are all within the abilities of the average close-up magician, and the clear instructions — David was a professional writer — and illustrations make them easy to learn. Here you will find gems such as:
The Pill Trick: Eight pills instantly vanish from the performer’s hands
The Steel Balls: 3 small ball bearings to 2 medium ones to one big one
Pengali: a blue Bic pen becomes red–cap, plug and ink
Frog Cut: secretly reverse cards while cutting the deck
