Amazing Magic TricksBook - 2009
A professional magician demonstrates the power of sleight-of-hand, using words and pictures that teach progressively more difficult--but also more amazing--coin and card tricks. Step-by-step illustrations show successive hand movements for each trick, and the accompanying text advises on methods for practicing and perfecting each of these amazing illusions. Tricks are arranged in groups, with tabs on page edges to separate and categorize successively more complex groups. With each trick, author Jon Tremaine divides his description into two parts: What you are supposed to do and What you actually do. Aspiring young magicians who open this book will discover the secrets of a polished professional, supplemented with a large measure of advice and encouragement. Approximately 40 amazing tricks in total.
