Andrus Card Control - magic

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.

Customer reviews for Andrus Card Control



This book is something to behold. There are SO many sleights of all possible varieties along with some uses for them. Some of these moves may not prove practical for your type of magic, but others will, and one way or another many inventive seeds will be planted in your head. My only complaint with this is having one volume for text and one for pictures, so you have to go back and forth with a key to tell you where to look. it would make the experience much better if it was one volume and all the pictures were in order with the text.
