Congreave's Curiosities - magic

When a full-time pro decides to share his worker routines, 40 of them, with the magic community, you should take notice. And when it's Chris Congreave, who is synonymous with commercial close-up routines and ideas, you definitely should pay attention.

Chris has honed his magic in order to make it totally practical for performance to lay people in the real world. Although some effects require sleight of hand, others are almost self-working, so there is something here no matter your skill level.

If you do commercial close-up or aspire to do so, this book should be in your library. Order you copy today!

Customer reviews for Congreave's Curiosities

Randy

I'm not sure why nobody reviewed this yet, but maybe folks want to keep it all to themselves?

People will pay $20 for a one-trick download, but this book has 40 commercial effects for only $34.95. Some of the many highlights for me were Fire Coins, Tin Opener, Signed Card to Tin, Marked Deck, Signed Card Routine, The Joker Has It, Cards to Pocket, and Packet Wallet.

I also enjoyed his essay: "Some Thoughts On Professional Close Up."

I recommend his At the Table lecture also, which includes some of these effects (and also some clever routines that aren't in the book).

But back to the book. As the Brits like to say, this book is a "cracking good read!" There is so much GOLD in here.
