When people tell us they are serious about card magic and want to know what books they should buy, we always tell them the same thing: “Get Card College.” That’s not to say that this acclaimed series is just for beginners. It’s not. It’s an excellent, cumulative course in handling a pack of cards, but it’s the best investment a card lover can make because your initiation course turns into the perfect reference library!
What we’re saying is this. You buy these books and read them cover to cover, learning the basics as you go. It’ll be fast at first, and in the later books you’ll come across tricks and moves that will require substantially more time. BUT, when you’re done with the course you’ll want to keep these books near your practice table forever because you’ll ALWAYS be able to look up moves or counts you’ve forgotten, or find a trick that fits what you’re trying to do. They’re essential tools for the serious magician.
And these aren’t just five volumes of tricks. Roberto Giobbi is a thoughtful author who offers fascinating history and anecdotes that make for interesting presentations. He also offers theatrical tips to go along with each trick. Your card magic will improve by leaps and bounds with this series. Obviously, beginners should start with Volume 1, but the series works best when you’ve got the whole set at your disposal.
