magic tricks based on secret chemistry, physics of science and magic have inspired me hope you learn from and have fun with this book. Your child's birthday should be memorable and special. Since Brett has children of his own, and he has spent several years teaching, he has a unique way of. Magic is a wonderful hobby. We have selected superb magic tricks, most of which can be performed with simple everyday objects. Once learned, you will be.
Unlike many of the "wiki" or "how to do everything" sites, this site will provide you with practical, action-able information on how to become a magician! What Does it Mean to "Be a Magician? Many books on magic use Robert Houdin's definition, which simply put says, "A magician is an actor playing the part of a magician. The best magicians are without doubt those who have mastered this role. In this regard, no magician has been more admired or respected than the great Dutch magician, Fred Kaps.
Yes, the video is old. However, watch Kaps' flawless technique, timing and acting! It's timeless. These objects may appear or disappear, multiply, or be transformed into other objects.
Manipulators use few if any "props," other than holders and receptacles. They sometimes also employ unseen gimmicks, including secret pockets, holders and other accessories. Manipulators often perform their acts to music with little or no patter talking. Illusionists often employ a number of assistants to unpack and set-up illusions, move them on and off stage, and help with the performance of the illusions. They play a critical role in this regard and are also needed when it's time to break down the show.
In addition to paying assistants, illusionists also need a way of moving equipment when traveling from show to show; usually by large truck or even semi-trailer.
As a result, illusion shows represent a substantial business investment for the magician and demand a steady stream of bookings generated by advertising, publicity, posters, and usually, an agent or advance man. Many TV, club and banquet magicians will include one or two larger scale tricks or illusions in their show. These are often illusions that break down small enough to fit in the trunk of the magician's car.
Some of these can even be made from cardboard. UF Grant, a long-time and extremely clever inventor of magic, wrote a book called "Victory Carton Illusions," when many common illusion building materials became scarce during the Second World War. The great Hans Moretti used a cardboard swordbox throughout his professional career that was as baffling as any illusion in magic.

We've included a YouTube clip of it below. Most all magicians, even if they do not consider themselves "card men" or women , have at least a few card tricks at their fingertips.
While many card tricks require some manipulative ability, there are also card tricks that rely on subtle principles, such as a card control system like Si Stebbins, key cards, and even gimmicked or trick decks. Card magic is the easiest way to get started in magic and requires no more investment than a deck of cards and couple of books or DVDs.
Jean Hugard, one of magic's greatest teachers, along with Frederick Braue, co-wrote one of the best books for anyone who aspires to do card magic called, "The Royal Road to Card Magic" - a book that helps newcomers build their skills and expertise, step-by-step. Many consider Jean Hugard's "Encyclopedia of Card Tricks," the single greatest book ever published on cards.
Practically every known card trick is explained. Jacob Daley, Glenn Gravatt, Chas. Jordan, U. Sharpe, and many more, plus the Nikola Card System. Available in PDF format from Trickshop. Close-up magicians perform in restaurants, nite clubs, at weddings, etc. Some close-up workers also perform "walkaround" or "strolling" magic at events where people are mostly standing or walking around. In this case, the magic is done in the magician's hands or the spectators'.
Dai Vernon, known to magicians worldwide as "The Professor," was one of close-up magic's greatest exponents. His brilliant work inspired generations of close-up magicians.
Close-up magic includes tricks with cards, coins, finger rings, sponge balls and even small silks.
Jean Hugard wrote a complete book on the subject called, "Close-up Magic. The Matrix is a strong visual close-up trick that uses just four cards and four coins. They may work on a stage, raised platform or even at floor level for clubs and service organizations, school assemblies, colleges, night clubs, cruise ships, hotels and resorts, corporate meetings and trade shows, and banquets.
Many stand-up magicians also use tongue-in-cheek comedy "patter" in their acts to keep their audiences laughing while they are being fooled. Some stand-up magicians specialize even further, catering to a specific type of audience, such as children kid shows.
These magicians structure their act and market it accordingly. There are books filled with comedy lines or patter written specifically for magical entertainers. Most of this material can be performed even by magicians who are not naturally funny; though good delivery and timing is essential. Magicians who perform mentalism exclusively are called "mentalists. Professional mentalists create the impression that they are able to read the minds of audience members through various "tests" or experiments.
Mentalists usually work with common everyday props that are above suspicion, such as pads, clipboards, books, envelopes, playing cards, etc. While some mentalists shun the use of playing cards, many of the mentalism greats had no problem using them, including Al Koran, German mentalist Ted Lesley, and of course, Ted Annemann who was a master inventor and performer of truly subtle magic and mentalism effects with cards.
Ted Annemann was one of the most creative and prolific mentalists and magicians of all time and his book, "Practical Mental Effects" is a virtual "how to" course in mentalism with nearly powerful, yet easy-to-perform mental effects and routines, organized into 12 categories. While mentalists usually work for larger groups, some also work one-on-one performing "private readings" using a process called "cold reading.
This w ill support that card. Lay six or seven cards on the table, and press the hand firmly upon them. Then lift, and the cards will come up.
When the hand is shaken the cards will fall. The Vanishing Card. This trick is performed with a playing card, a tumbler, and a handkerchief. The card is placed beneath the handkerchief, which is held over the glass; and the card is pushed down into the glass. The celluloid card is hidden beneath the handkerchief, at the outset.
When the celluloid card goes in the glass, the handkerchief may be removed. A drinking-glass is employed in this trick also. Any card is taken from the pack and is pushed down into the glass.
A spectator is told to ask the card to rise. The magician removes the card from the glass, strokes it on his sleeve, and inserts it in the glass, from which it immediately rises to his outstretched hand.
Use a smooth-finished glazed card, and a glass with tapering sides. Take a piece of dry soap and rub it on the inside of the glass, making two narrow channels at opposite points, running from the top of the glass to the bottom.
When the card is pushed down into the glass so that its edges come in contact with the smooth paths, the card will rise; but if it is not pushed in at the correct point, it will not rise. The soap should be applied carefully and evenly; then its presence will not be observable.
The Card on the Hand This is a surprising finish to a card trick. After a chosen card has been brought on top of the pack by any one of the methods described, the pack is cut into two portions.
The magician places the lower portion on the palm of his hand and tosses it in the air. He thrusts his hand among the falling cards, and the chosen card appears on the back of his hand, apparently caught out of the others.
The magician has a tiny bit of lead plaster affixed to the back of his hand. When he places the lower heap on the palm of the hand, he momentarily rests the back of the hand on the upper heap. When the hand tosses the lower heap in the air, the chosen card sticks to the back of the hand.
The hand is simply turned over amongst the falling cards, and the illusion is complete. An envelope is shown empty, and a tiny piece of cardboard is put in it. Then a pack of cards is cut, and. The spectators then look at the card just below the envelope.
It is the four of diamonds. The envelope is opened, and the tiny card is shaken out. On it is a picture of the four of diamonds! The envelope is then tossed on the table. The envelope is a double, one, made by cutting off the front of another envelope and inserting it in a genuine envelope. The tiny card can be drawn with ink; a tiny photograph or a printed card is preferable if one can be obtained.
Show the envelope apparently empty, and drop in a blank card of the same size as the miniature that is hidden in the envelope. This is a bold procedure that never fails to pass detection. The spectators look at the card underneath the envelope. Remove the envelope, cut it under the flap, thus opening the front compartment, and let the tiny card fall out. While every one is examining it, and the surprise is great, calmly put the envelope in your pocket. As an afterthought, you bring out the envelope really the duplicate and drop it carelessly on the table.
No one ever notices this simple exchange, as it is done quite naturally. Allow a pack of cards to be thoroughly shuffled. Show that the inside pocket of your coat is quite empty, and put the pack in there. State that the aces respond to your sense of touch, and thrust your hand into the pocket.
Each time you reach in, you bring out an. After the aces have all been produced, the pack is brought out, and all the cards may be examined.
Previously remove the aces from the pack, and put them in your upper right vest pocket. Let the pack be shuffled; no one will notice that the aces are missing, as you do not mention them until you have put the pack in your inside pocket. Each time you reach for an ace, put your hand in your vest pocket. By holding the coat well over with the right hand, no one can tell that you are not reaching into the inside pocket.
The effect of this trick is not new; but the method has been so simplified that the trick may be performed with very little practice. A card is taken from the pack and noted. It is returned to the magician, who pushes it face down into the pack, holding the pack well squared to show that he cannot keep track of the card. The pack is laid on the table and the magician waves his hand over it.
He deals ofi. It is the chosen card! To perform this trick, use a pack that has white margins around the edges of the backs. Secretly turn the bottom card of the pack face up.
Then fan the cards, taking care not to show the bottom card, and have a card selected. While those present are looking at the card, turn your back so that you will not see it. This gives you time to square up the pack and turn it over, so that the bottom card is on top.
Hold the pack in your left hand, the fingers at one side and the thumb at the other, with the palm upwards.
As you approach the table, turn your hand over back up with a sweeping motion, and lay the pack on the table. Pass your hand over the pack and deal the cards until you come to the chosen card, which will be face up.
Take a pack of cards and show the ace of clubs, which you place on top of the pack for a moment. As soon as the ace is fairly in the pack, the cards are snapped, and the bottom card is turned up.
It is the ace of clubs, back on top!
When you show the ace of clubs, the three of clubs is in back of it, the two being held as one. The cards should be bent slightly outwards by pressure of the thumb and fingers at opposite sides.
Then the double thickness w ill not be detected. The cards are laid on the pack, and the three supposedly the ace is removed and pushed in the center.
When the card is one-third in, tilt up the pack, holding your finger tips over the end of the card. Only the center spot of the trey will be observed; push the card all the way in, and everyone w ill be satisfied that the ace is actually in the center of the pack. When the right hand reaches the end. The back of the right hand is away from you.
Open the pocketbook with the left hand. Grip the ends of the cigar with the left thumb and fingers. As the hand runs up the cigar it looks as though the cigar is being pulled out of the pocketbook. The illusion is very deceptive. Take the band off the cigar and hold the cigar lengthwise in the right hand. Cigar from Pocketbook A small pocketbook is opened in the left hand.
When the cigar is shown. The band apparently disappears. Wave the cigar and give it a half turn between the thumb and forefinger. Another half turn will bring it back. A little practise will make this an effective trick. Rubber cigars are now being sold which are perfect imitations of genuine cigars.
A cigar band suddenly disappears from a cigar.
Cut a cigar band in half so that only thu emblem remains. Glue the half band to a cigar. One of these cigars can be rolled up and enclosed in the pocketbook. Cigar Balanced on Hat Balancing a cigar on a hat is not a difficult trick—when you know the secret! A derby hat is the best to use. In this case. H it the end of the cigar and it will revolve on the unseen pivot. By reaching up inside the hat the magician can remove the pin and release the cigar.
Then set the end of the cigar on the pin. In doing this trick. The Revolving Cigar The magician sets a cigar on its side on the crown of a hat. The cigar immediately revolves on the hat. As in the last trick a short pin. The Reversing Cigarette A cork-tipped cigarette is pushed through the left fist. A small pin does the trick. When the cigar is removed. This is accomplished by cutting the cork- tip from a cigarette. The Magnetic Cigar A cigar is laid upon the finger tips of the left hand.
The pin is set with the head between the knuckles of two fingers of the left hand. When the cork-tip end is pushed into the fist. The hand is slowly turned over. Thus the cork-tip will slide freely along the cigarette.

The cigar is set on the pin point. Then he pretends to take a cigarette paper from his pocket. He opens an imaginary tobacco pouch and loads the invisible cigarette paper.
Take a box of safety matches and cut a piece out of one end of the drawer. The magician lays a partly opened box of matches on the table. When he finishes the action. Push the drawer part way open at the other end and take care that the cigarette is covered with real matches. Then he goes through the actions of rolling a cigarette.

The hands are brought forward a bit so that the cigarette is drawn clear from the box. As if to avoid a wind. The right hand shakes out the match while the left hand pockets the match box.

From two feet away. A cork-tipped cigarette is taken between the hands. This is a very effective little illusion. The left thumb pushes forward the long cigarette, and the hands begin to draw upon it, instead of the other cigarette. As the hands are gradually pulled apart, the cigarette appears to stretch. As a great many persons are not familiar with the long cigarettes, this trick often creates more than ordinary surprise.
A cigarette is placed on the edge of the table so that part of it overhangs. The magician holds another cigarette a few inches below it. As he moves the lower cigarette, the one on the table begins to tip towards it, as though magnetized; and finally it falls off the table, into the outstretched hand. Magnetism has nothing to do with the trick. As the magician leans over the table, he breathes lightly on the extended cigarette, thus causing it first to tip, and finally to fall from the table.
A coin is placed in a match box; the drawer is closed and the box is shaken to show that the coin is stdl there. When the box is opened the coin has disappeared. The box is prepared by cutting in one end of the drawer a slit just large enough to admit a coin. The opening will not be noticed. When the box is shaken sideways, the coin will rattle; but as soon as you tilt the box towards yourself, with the trick end inwards, the coin will slide out into your hand.
The other hand should then take the box and lay it aside, to be opened later. To do this, make a flat, stiff tube, of metal or cardboard, through which the coin can slide, and wind the wool around it. When you have secretly gained possession of the coin that was in the match box, turn to get the ball of wool. Drop the coin through the tube, pull out the tube and bring on the ball of wool.
A marked coin should be used. By using a loose ball of wool, you can work the trick without the tube. The coin is merely pushed through the wool and the ball squeezed around it. For this trick you require a ring about an inch and a half in diameter. The ring is laid on a piece of paper and is covered with a smallv square of cardboard. When the ring is set over a coin and the cardboard square is lifted, the coin w ill be gone. It will come back as soon as the ring is covered and lifted away.
A circle of paper, the size of the ring and the same color as the paper upon which the. No one observes this, as the disc appears to be part of the sheet of paper. When the ring is placed over a coin, of course the coin will be out of sight. This trick is rather well-known, so it should be used only as a forerunner to the next trick:. The effect of this trick is identical to that of the last. A cardboard is set over a ring; the ring is set over a coin; when the cardboard is lifted, the coin is gone.
Hidden underneath the cardboard you have a little piece of wood, pasted to a strip of cardboard that is as wide as the cardboard square. Thus the little wooden affair can be lifted up with the square of cardboard. The bottom of the wooden piece is dabbed with wax or lead plaster.
When the cardboard square is set over the ring, and both are put over the coin, the wooden piece picks up the coin. When the cardboard square is lifted, the coin is taken away and is calmly dropped. Three Appearing Coins Three coins are held edgewise between the thumb and forefinger of one hand.

The back of the hand is turned to the audience. The right hand places the coin on the trouser leg, just above the knee, and holds it there, while the left hand folds some of the cloth up over the coin. A standing position must be assumed. Then the cloth is pulled out straight, and the coin is gone. The Whirl-away Coin This is a quick little trick that requires some practice.
A coin is whirled in the air and is caught in the right hand, which slaps it on the back of the left. As the coin apparently falls into your hand, you do not catch it, but let it drop into your coat sleeve. You close your fist, however, and pretend to slap the imaginary coin on the back of your left hand.
This is a very effective illusion that is not difficult to perform after a time. The Changing Coin This is a feat of dexterity that will require careful practice, until the knack is acquired. A person is invited to hold out his hand, flat, with a quarter on the palm. When you strike his palm with your finger tips, he must close his fist immediately, so that you cannot get the coin.
You strike his hand; he closes his fist, and he thinks he has the quarter safe—but when he opens his hand, he finds a five-cent piece instead! A person is asked to. The right hand sweeps the pennies off the table into the left.
Hold the five cent piece in the crook of your little finger. While the left hand is receiving the three coins the left fingers secure the hidden coin and take it along with the others.
Odd and Even This is more of a catch than a trick. As you strike his hand sharply with your finger-tips. The force of the blow w ill make the quarter bounce. The Multiplying Coins Three pennies are laid on the table. When the left hand is opened it contains four coins instead of three.

Then count from the right and move coins 5 and 6 to the vacancy created by the first move. Two metal rings of the. The other coins will be cold so it is a simple matter to pick out the chosen coin. Then take the two coins from the left end of the line and slide them into the latest gap.
As they do so. When the coin is being marked. Cover the lower card with the loose ring and finish the trick. The left hand picks up one and goes beneath the table. A hair is attached to one ring and runs to the coin. Take hold of the upper card and slide it away.
The coin w ill slide along. The coin and ring lie close together on the table. The magician puts one ring on top of the two cards and slides the card and ring across the table. But when he lifts the card and ring that cover the coin. The cards are humped up in the center. Coin Through the Table Four coins are laid on the table.

The Balanced Handkerchief A handkerchief is folded diagonally and is rolled into a long cylinder. The Doubling Knot Hold a corner of a silk handkerchief in the left hand.
The handkerchief is rolled around the wire. Then roll the right hand over toward the left so. The handkerchief should be pocketed immediately after the trick. This is accomplished by having a piece of whalebone or pliable wire hidden in the folded handkerchief.
The handkerchief sways but does not fall. The sole advantage in the linen handkerchief lies in the fact that it is not so transparent as silk. Place the right hand. It is then balanced upright on the tip of the forefinger. Spread the upper knot so that it surrounds the lower. The Appearing Knot A handkerchief linen or silk is held in the right hand by one corner. The loose corner is raised to the right hand.

Place it on top of the first loop and hold the two loops pressed together by the right hand. Attention is called to the loose hanging corner. Move the right hand further down the handkerchief and form another similar loop.
Insert the third finger of the left hand in that loop. The corner originally held in the right hand is previously knotted but the knot is hidden by the fingers.
This is a perfect little illusion and it seems as though a knot suddenly appears in the loose corner. After raising and shaking out the hanging corner two or three times.
