Five Points In Magic - magic

Long out of print and widely sought after, The Five Points in Magic is Juan Tamariz's highly regarded study of the physical and psychological secrets that use the body to fool the mind. He shows in detail how each of these five possessions


can be marshaled to create entertaining and seemingly impossible happenings.

In The Five Points in Magic, Juan Tamariz teaches magicians that it is not the hands alone that deceive, but also the feet, the body, the eyes and the voice. It is only through a full understanding of all five of these tools of nature and communication that the conjurer can spin a complete web of illusion that traps and then transports his audiences into the astonishing realm he has prepared for them.

These five tools are essential and invaluable to the stage conjurer and the close-up magician alike, and they are clearly analyzed and taught by Tamariz from his vantage point of years of successful professional performance in both venues. Tamariz enhances the clarity of his ideas and explanations with solid examples drawn from his own repertoire. As the reader learns seminal principles, he also learns these professional effects and techniques-

  • The Appearing Card on Handkerchief
  • Crossing the Gaz
  • Double Crossing the Gaze
  • The Ribbonspread Force
  • Al's Topper (a book test)
  • Protean Poker
  • Upper Cut (a Tamarisian study of Larry Jennings's 'Coin Cut')

There is no other book that so quickly, efficiently and entertainingly puts into the reader's hands the tools required to raise his performances to a level of true professionalism and draw his audiences into the world of magic.

The text and design of this new edition have been revised to provide added clarity for readers of this valuable modern classic of magic.

Customer reviews for Five Points In Magic



Everything you have heard about this book is true. Never in so few pages has any book offered the performer so effective a way to improve his or her performance. Some people balk at the price given its physical thinness. If they would buy it and open it they would see that El Maestro Tamariz has manage to squeeze the ocean into a thimble. My advice is, skip the next couple "hot props" that the cool kids are buying and buy this instead. Read it, learn it, apply it and profit.



'Five Points In Magic' is a must have for any fans of the great card wizard, Juan Tamariz. You learn the five points in magic, (Eyes, Voice, Hands, Feet & Body) and a trick at the end of each point.

With it being printed and published by Hermetic Press, you know you're going to get fantastic quality and design in its hardcover binding. Take the dust jacket off and you see yellow boards with Juan Tamariz's signature in metallic blue, with a maroon cloth binding that features blue metallic wording on the spine. It is currently (at time of review) in its fifth printing and this is the printing I received in 2021.

Opening the book, take a moment to enjoy the 'new book smell' and then proceed to read all 94 pages in one sitting. It features the typical wit of Juan Tamariz, as well as many photos and humourous drawings to demonstate the techniques described. At the back are some personal further reading reccomendations from Juan Tamariz, many of which the avid magician will have heard of.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and reccomend it to any fan of Juan Tamariz with a little money burning a hole in their pocket and all magicians that can wait for a sale.
