Classic Magic of Larry Jennings - magic

You will not believe how much stuff this book contains. Let me count ...

Sorry, I lost count. However, the table of contents take up five(!) pages. That's how big this book is.

Larry Jennings' name is well-known in the magic world. Classics such as "The Visitor", "Ambitious Classic" and "Open Travelers", are all expertly explained in this book.

Jennings' strong side was to streamline his magic. Making the effect very clear, and the method as direct as possible. He was a student and friend of Dai Vernon's, and this shows through in his routining. Every move is motivated and natural, and nothing is left out.

Apart from the routines, all sleights used are described and credited accordingly. The book also has references to where routines and sleights were originally published and by whom.

Jennings came from the raw sleight of hand-era, so expect some real knuckle-busters throughout the pages. There are, of course, a lot of easier routines and sleights in the book as well.

When I got this book, I didn't know where to start. There was so much content! I assure you though, that no matter where you dive in, you'll find something of interest.

"An absolute must for all lovers of the poetry of magic." -Dai Vernon

288 pages, hardbound with dustjacket, with over 440 excellent illustrations by Tom Gagnon and over 80 effects and 90 sleights fully explained to make learning easy. I didn't lose count this time.
