The last of the Card College Light trilogy (which is lucky because I think they've run out of catchy "light" titles), Card College Lightest is a collection of easy card magic given the Roberto Giobbi treatment. If you've been in magic for a period, it's easy to dismiss this book, thinking that self-working magic is beneath you. However, there are some real gems here and Giobbi adds a lot with his interesting presentations, clear patter and clever routining.
In this volume, there are 18 thoroughly astonishing tricks of professional quality, complete with performing psychology, presentations, valuable tips and insights, all of which contribute to making these sleightless effects into near miracles.
The tricks Giobbi has selected this time range from time-tested classics to little-known wonders by masters of the craft, including Larry Becker, Henry Christ, Aldo Colombini, Paul Curry, Alex Elmsley, Karl Fulves, Martin Gardner, Stewart James, Howard Adams, Richard Vollmer and more.
Also explained are simple methods for achieving false shuffles, deck switches and other techniques usually attainable only by demanding sleight-of-hand.
Roberto Giobbi is acknowledged worldwide as the finest living teacher of card magic. His Card College series is a best-seller in five languages, and Card College Lightest is the newest example of why he and his works are held in such high regard by magicians of all levels, from rank amateur to seasoned professional. If you have read his books, you will need no urging to buy Card College Lightest. If you have yet to encounter Roberto Giobbi, you will find Card College Lightest a delightful introduction.
