Card Classics of Ken Krenzel - magic

I dare to say that this is one if the most underestimated books on card magic.

For people that consider themselves "move-monkeys", the dinner has been served. There are many sleights in this book, including some really odd ones such as a bottom deal done at the fingertips and a "Tilt" move executed from the front.

My favorite item in this book has the most awesome title ever; "Two-Card Fan Lift Switch, Reversal, Palm". It's exactly that: a two card, fan lift switch, a reversal and a palm. It sounds nuts, because it is nuts.

There is also a great amount of routines utilizing the sleights taught in the book. Amongst variations of classic plots, you will find several original to Mr. Krenzel. For example, one interesting routine in the book is a Collectors routine done backwards: three selections vanish from in between the aces, instead of the other way around!

Ever heard of "The Mechanical Reverse"? This book contains Krenzel's original writeup for the move (although for the history buffs, there is some dispute over the fact that Ron Wohl published it before Krenzel). It's a great covered half pass that should be in every card magician's arsenal.

Ken Krenzel's description of the Classic Pass has been regarded as one of the best, and it really is thorough. Several other shifts original to Ken Krenzel are also discussed in the book.

As you can probably tell, this book isn't for people with a mild interest in card magic. This is for the fanatics who get turned on by Two-Card Fan Lift Switch, Reversal, Palms and other such technical card magic. I love the book and if that kind of move excites you, you're going to love it too!
