A one-of-a-kind book featuring six new effects from Harapan Ong.
During his career, Harapan Ong has had two main identities: his current identity as a magician and the earlier part of his magic journey when he was a self-proclaimed caridist-wannabe. In this double-sided book, you’ll get to enjoy multiple amazing card effects from both worlds.
The first side, the eponymous “I Am Not a Cardist”, offers three powerful routines based on more traditional ideas. Flip the book over and you’ll find the “I Am a Cardist” section containing flashier card tricks that sprinkle in a touch of cardistry. Don’t let that intimidate you though. Even if you’ve never performed cardistry, everything is explained in detail. With a little practice, you’ll be able to perform these extraordinary routines.
Not sure which side to start on? Just follow the flowchart wrapped around the book to uncover which one might appeal to you first. Or, you can also follow the highly-recommended option of being a free spirit and diving right into either one.
