A huge, beautiful hardback collection of close up magic tricks from nearly 20 world-famous magicians.
Close-up File by Jerry Mentzer is filled with 35 novel routines, many of which weren't published anywhere else previously. From coins and money, to various table-hopping routines and even the shell game, all these effects use props you likely already own. Almost none of them use playing cards, and the few that do use them in a way that's incidental. If you're looking for something other than card magic, Close-up File is the book for you!
An amazing array of contributors includes: Richard Bartram, Jr., David Harkey, Warren Stephens, Peter Kane, Stephen Tucker, Horace Bennett, Paul Diamond, Scott Edwards, Woody Landers, David Neighbors, Dan Tong, Ray Mertz, Karl Norman, Mike Bornstein, Jerry Mentzer, Rick Johnsson, Aldo Colombini, Ian Baxter, John Riggs, John Murray, and Aldo Colombini.
This book focuses on providing complete effects over moves. Any description of sleights is done within the framework of a routine. All of the routines are practical and amazing pieces that will be of great interest to any close-up magician.
