116 Coin Sleights and 236 Coin Tricks

When party guests request a few tricks, be prepared. Ask for a coin, and perform some of the tricks in this book. Because you will not have been aided by special stage apparatus, the results will be all the more astonishing. As tricks with coins are so readily improvised, they are among the most impressive forms of legerdemain.

This book is the most complete treatise ever written on sleight-of-hand coin conjuring. Celebrated magician J.B. Bobo has gathered here the best and most useful of all coin tricks-not only his own, but those of some four dozen notable prestidigitators, including such greats as Robert-Houdin, Professor Hoffmann and-the greatest of all coin conjurers-T. Nelson Downs.

All the tested, traditional methods of coin magic are here. Bobo has added to these the best of the modern innovations, while eliminating all the out-of-date and impractical sleights of his sources. You will learn all about palms, holds, flips, switches, change-overs, steals, cuffing, sleeving and other sleight-of-hand techniques; coin tricks requiring special devices are also included. The author guides you systematically from basic techniques, concealments and vanishes, through integrated tricks, to complete routined acts (18 in all). His clear explanations are splendidly complemented by 510 illustrations.

Sleight-of-hand magic has consistently earned the respect of professional magicians . If you are yet an amateur, this easy-to-follow manual-together with regular practice-is the surest route to professional level competence. For professionals, this volume is a convenient encyclopedic reference that gathers in one place all the best coin magic from antiquity to modern times.

Paperbound, 510 illustrations.


Customer reviews for Modern Coin Magic



This book is a killer piece of history, with outstanding practical instructions on numerous coin manipulations, beginning with several palming techniques, and advancing straight into routines.
The English reads a little odd because of the era in which it was published, but to me, that just makes it even more authentic. I'm glad it's still available; my other copies were either vandalized or stolen.
This book is excellent for anyone, beginners to advanced; it has something to offer everyone with an interest in coin magic.



Perfect book to learn magic with pennies. Even though English is not my native language, I understood everything perfectly well thanks to the picture and the quality of the explanations. The book is very clear and easy to learn compared to many other books.



This book is so amazing that when you start reading you can't stop until you have finished the entire book. It teaches so many of the must now basics in magic from the palming to the switching to tricks. All in one book. I have fooled everybody around me with the help of this book.
