is a booklet containing 24 tricks and routines with cards. All of the
routines pivot around one principle: palindromic stacks (also known as
mirror stacks or reflected stacks, in some circles). While still not
widely known, Rusduck's Stay-Stack is probably the most famous output
from this interesting genre of card magic.
The effects aren't really flashly, knuckle-busters,
but instead they are interesting because they apply clever
methodological principles to interesting, lofty plots. Many of the
effects have full routines and presentations and they're all easy to do.
that it's such a small genre of card magic that it is quite acceptable
for you to have never experimented with palindromic stacks. If you like
the work of Alex Elmsley, Stewart James, Persi Diaconis, Roy Walton, Peter Duffie et all, then I think you'd like what Goldstein has to offer.
This is a small book that you'll likely enjoy in one or two sittings. It is definitely a fun read and we're happy to recommend it to you.
