Expert's Portfolio - Volume 2 - magic

This is the collection that solidified Jack Carpenter's reputation as an underground legend and a creative force. Don't let the sparse production values (wiro bound, soft-cover) throw you. The contents of this rare and acclaimed collection focus on gambling material and card magic, as well as the numerous original sleights that are also taught. Darwin Ortiz praises the volume in his Foreword, and this collection is considered to be essential reading for serious card men, and many believe it to be Carpenter's best work. Here's a sampling of what you'll find:

One-Handed Triumph is a superb construction, and as the title makes clear, it's a version of the classic plot but with the added intrigue of using just one hand.

"The Legend of Silas Greene" is a gambling effect told with rhyming patter.

"Scarne's Dream" is a beautiful production of four Aces at the same time, from a fan.

"The One Shot Shift" is, arguably, the best multiple shift-to-palm sequence ever devised.

In all there are more than a dozen routines and moves, and each one is described with care and precision. 91 pages. Illustrated.

  • Robert asks: How much of the material are gambling demonstrations?

    • 1. John answers: Volume 2 is divided into two sections: The first is a collection of sleights, some of which are suited for both magic and gambling, and the second section is devoted to full length routines; most of which fall into the category of card magic. Volume 1 is divided into two sections also, the first of which is card magic, and the second, routines with a gambling premise.
