Not a master of legerdemain? If you still want to do card tricks, then this is your guide. It includes instructions and illustrations for 72 foolproof card miracles for the amateur magician.
These tricks work automatically because of the mathematics inherent in the card deck itself. You won't need long practice and supernormal dexterity to perform these tricks, but you'll find them most entertaining and quite spectacular!
Some of these sure-fire tricks are simple, a good place to begin. Others were specially adapted from professional routines and are here presented for the first time for amateurs.
Almost all of these tricks can be worked informally, with a borrowed deck of cards. Some also adapt to stage presentation.
Individual tricks in this book have sold for more than the price of the entire book. Amateurs can use them to get a start in magic and to feel, at once, the rewards of giving a professional performance. Advanced and professional magicians will find tricks to add to their acts or informal routines.
