Imagine having a card signed
and inserted into the deck, stopping when the card is sticking out of
the deck 1/8th of an inch, so the spectator can see it (his actual
card), going in. The card is pushed in the rest of the way, then the
spectator is asked to name a number between 1-15. You, without ANY
cuts, shuffles or 'moves' of any kind, legitimately count to the named
number and find the signed card!
This, and dozens of other miracles, are taught in this two volume, 176 page set of books.
Let's not mince our words here: Jerry Andrus was an insanely creative, ridiculously inquisitive individual. This set of books was his best work on magic and it is a must-own for anyone interested in experimenting with sleight of hand card magic.
Andrus saw the deck in a different way to anyone else we know. He found interesting ways to shuffle, palm, reverse, pass and change cards. They're all detailed here. Volume one contains the updated and reformatted text. Volume two contains over 1,050 line art illustrations by the author. Each book is spiral-bound, for ease of learning (they can be laid flat on the table).
Check these out. Seriously. Do it.
