Close-Up Magic Tricks

At Vanishing Inc. Magic we love the genre called close-up magic. Think David Blaine, Dynamo, and any magic you've seen up close, right under your nose - magic with cards and coins. But, lots of magic can fall into close up magic: card tricks, coin tricks, even the oldest trick in the world, a cups and balls routine.

There is no question, for us, that a miracle witnessed up close and with interaction is always stronger than some stage illusion seen from a great distance. That's why the focus on our business is close-up magic tricks.

If you're new to magic, our co-founder Joshua Jay literally "wrote the book" on close-up magic for beginners: Magic: The Complete Course.
