Applesauce - magic
Applesauce Applesauce Applesauce Applesauce Applesauce Applesauce

Applesauce is a brilliant offering from the creative mind of Patrick Redford that will teach you to be the master with a deck of cards with effects such as 'Any Thought of Card at Any Thought of Number' and more.

If you're a fan of the Any Card at Any Number plot, Open Prediction or simple hard-hitting card magic, this book is for you. Containing material from 15 plus years of Patrick Redford's life, with some of the best commercial, real-world workable material. Everything between these covers is real world useable material that has been developed in front of live audiences of both magicians and laymen.

Featuring methods such as the ability to seemingly memorise a deck of cards in 30 seconds, proving that you know every single card AND pass this ability on to a spectator. Featuring no memory work and with a borrowed, shuffled, unprepared deck of cards. Also features a condensed version of Patrick's routine 'Storm', which allows you to perform the same kind of routine in just 2 or 3 seconds. You'll also learn a technique for revealing a thought of card, (not taken or pulled out of a pack - just thought of), with seemingly no fishing whatsoever. And the title routine of the book, Applesauce, is a thought of card at thought of number where you never know what the card or number is until the deck is out of your hands. Howard Hamburg touted this effect as one of the most astounding effects he's ever seen performed, and that's saying something!

Customer reviews for Applesauce



This is a great book. The applesauce ACAAN was a nice two person acaan that works well and is deceptive. Also, the Fishing in One was a cool way to fish for a card in one statement.



This was a great lecture. I had 2 favorites. Derren’s coin reading effects has such a simple method that you won’t believe it. I also loved Smoke and how he uses a gimmick to get incredible reactions.



Applesauce has a solid and creative blend of card mentalism featuring ACAAN and the illusion of memorizing parts of the deck type effects. So far, Applesauce and Storm are my favorites. There is a mix of relatively easy effects to learn and those requiring more of a challenge. Some effects are impromptu while others require preparation. The quality of the printing/publication is disappointing although it doesn’t diminish the book’s legibility.



Patrick Redford has come up with some very clever tricks that will likely even fool the pants off of other magicians. I would consider many of the tricks at the intermediate level, as they don't require difficult sleights. But the tricks pack a powerful punch and will not seem like intermediate level tricks to the spectators. Redford gives variations in presentation which many will find useful in tweaking the presentation of the effect to fit your personality style. The printing quality and layout of the book is not the best I've seen but the info is stellar and well worth the price.
