It's been a while since Allan Kronzek’s last magic book, but that time has been spent developing, testing, and refining the material in Artful Deceptions. Not only will you learn some superb routines, you'll also learn how to connect with spectators in a way that makes them, their actions, and their decisions, the center of every routine.

Among the gems are True Romance, in which two spectators find each other’s cards in a deeply impossible way; Think of One, the revelation of a freely thought of card that is never named, noted, or removed from the deck; and The Mirror, the classic Do As I Do effect elevated to the level of a performance piece that you will absolutely use. And don’t miss Playing With the Jokers, the most effective routine you’ll ever find for instantly disarming your spectators and turning them into your accomplices, not your adversaries. All routines are genuinely impromptu: no gimmicks, no setups, no resets.

Here’s what some of the most respected card magicians in the world think about Artful Deceptions.

"One of the best magic books in many years. Highly recommended."Jim Swain
"Allan’s precise, yet conversational, writing will transport you to your own private session with a clever and thoughtful practitioner. You’ll enjoy the discourse. Time well spent."John Bannon
"[Allan] has an ingenious sense of deception, devilish, I think. It is truly a great lesson in creative imagination and intelligent thought."Bob Fitch
"The kind of work that truly contributes to the improvement of our art."Jamy Ian Swiss

Customer reviews for Artful Deceptions



Artful Deceptions shows that quality can be more rewarding than quantity in a magic book. The eight card routines are strong and memorable, with clear and thoughtful descriptions, photos and presentations. My personal favorite is Destiny, Chance and Free Will. Experiencing Allan Kronzek present two of the other routines from this book at the recent Magifest was a treat.



This is indeed a wonderful book. The Mirror and Think of One are very strong card tricks. Think of One is a simply amazing. One of those routines that will give you a great thrill every time you do it.



This is a truly excellent book. Very well written. The presentations are very well done. Most of the effects are easy to do but pack a wallop. I have reread most of this book many times. Get it ASAP.
