Magic download (video) by Roberto Giobbi (12.00)

Welcome to the second instalment of Roberto Giobbi's "Favorites" series! In this download, Roberto explores three trick from the legendary Alex Elmsley. Roberto describes him in the introduction as an "inspired amateur and a genius thinker". When you see what this download has in store for you, we know you will agree!

Over the course of one hour, Roberto teaches you three Elmsley routines which he has cherry-picked from a lifetime's worth of work and woven them into one seamless, impactufl set. Begin by watching Roberto perfom these tricks in front of a close-up audience. Then, relax for an hours worth of expert instruction from one of magic's gretest teachers.

You will learn:

All Backs - A deck of cards is shown which, Roberto explains, is a "seconds" deck - sold because it has a defect. It is shown to have backs on both sides but Roberto insists that he can still do a trick with it. Pulling out four double backed cards, he removes the 'aces' but sure enough, no one is impressed. With one wave of the hand, the deck in Roberto's hand becomes printed - with faces and backs - and so do the cards on the table. Taking a pen, Roberto crosses out "seconds" and writes "firsts"

Double Swap - Roberto explains that he mustn't touch the selected cards so uses the aces to pincer them out of the deck. Then the red aces trap two cards. Bizarrely, they are not the selections but the two black aces! The selections are found on the table where the black aces should have been from the beginning!

1002nd Aces - A quick and hard-hitting ace assembly that requires no gaffs!

Customer reviews for Favorites - Giobbi on Elmsley

VI Monthly


I highly recommend Roberto Giobbi's "Favorites, Alex Elmsley" version. Mr. Giobbi and Vanishing Inc., have done the cause of "Artistic Card Magic" a service by preserving the works of two true geniuses; Mr. Elmsley and Mr. Giobbi. Nicely filmed with entertaining presentations and clear explanations. One suggestion: for review and learning; a PDF with time markers of the videos would be a welcome addition to any tutorial videos. Easy "Five Stars."



Alex Elmsley was one of the best innovators in card magic, he is famous because of the Ghost Count (commonly known as Elmsley Count), but actually none of the effects that Roberto teaches in this download use the famous count. If you read Alex Elmsley and thought that every effect would include the Elmsley count, you are wrong, All Backs is a great routine with very useful presentation tips given by Giobbi. Double Swap is very, very powerful and 1002nd Aces is also great. Get this and learn great magic.



Once again, he did it! Astonishing! Not only for the material, extraordinary by it self, but the teaching of Roberto Giobbi is something you can’t miss if you love real magic.
