Magic download (ebook) by Tom Stone ($12.00)

Snapshots - magic

What makes Tom Stone such an ingenious creator is the whimsy of his plots. “Matchbox Calculator” turns an ordinary drawer-style matchbox into a calculator! “Packing for McComb” is a hilarious interlude inspired by the work of Billy McComb: this would kill in a stage act. “On the Dancing Cane” is a modern approach to this classic prop, and “Lodestorming” is essential reading for anyone learning about productions onstage.


  • Matchbox Calculator - A small effect with a matchbox.
