10 elegant, perfectly-constructed performance pieces for advanced card magicians.
We will be honest with you that this book is definitely not for beginners. It is designed for experienced card magicians willing to put in the work. Those who do will be rewarded with an array of card magic masterpieces.
Contents of Instructions for Miracles
After an impressive demonstration of hand-mucking, the magician exposes an innocent member of the audience as a professional card cheat before coaxing them into performing an even more remarkable card switch.
Convince your participant that, when looking through a “special” pair of glasses, the backs of four aces seemingly appear in a different color.
A card is thrown high in the air and then caught back in the deck where it splits a chosen card (which can even be signed).
Fastest Card Trick in the World
A lightning-fast transpo of four signed Aces and Kings. It is then instantly repeated, but this time the Kings go into four different pockets. (Check this one out in the video above!)
Despite all the cards being seemingly mixed, your participant continues to impossibly find the mate of a chosen card several times. Then, as a kicker finale, the whole deck arranges itself into pairs.
Nine Card Monte Revisited
A squeaky-clean take on the classic José Carroll effect that allows all the cards to be examined at the end.
Without ever coming near the deck of cards, you’re able to divine three freely-chosen cards.
Out of this Card Box
A wildly-clever take on the iconic “Out of This World” by Paul Curry with an “outside the box” concept that enables you to start from a shuffled deck.
Four chosen cards from a special number deck add up to a freely selected number. This is repeated until a full magic square is on the table.
Instructions for a Miracle
A signed card appears bound into a small booklet in this wonderfully practical and direct version of a fantastic José Carroll effect. (Please be advised that this trick is heavily inspired by “El Milagro” by Juan Manuel Marcos and is taught as if you are already familiar with the basic workings of that effect).
