About the Book

Many professional magicians agree that you can't truly consider yourself a well-rounded card magician until you've read Vernon's Inner Card Trilogy. This a special collection of three Vernon books that were groundbreaking at the time of their release and are still incredibly impressive to this day. These texts, Inner Secrets of Card Magic, More Inner Secrets of Card Magic and Further Inner Secrets of Card Magic, were compiled and photographed by Lewis Ganson.

In 1969, famous magic dealer Harry Stanley claimed that the magic within the Inner Card Trilogy would still be fresh in 50 years time. Well, all these years later, we're here to agree with Harry Stanley. This material is still fresh and many magicians still entertain and fool magicians and audiences alike with some of the tricks published in this collection!
