Iñaki Zabaletta has a profound knowledge of the essence of our Art. He's a great communicator and his charm and creativity make him an exceptional artist. While it's tremendously difficult to be the best in one branch of magic, it is a true rarity to excel in all. Iñaki does just this.

"In this book you will find a compilation of the best material of a professional Magician, in the true sense of the word. He is an internationally successful Magician who will, in the same way, win an award at FISM, captivate the audience at a Magic convention or categorically receive a standing ovation tough foreign audiences. When I grow up, I want to be like Inaki Zabaletta" Woody Aragon

"Who is Iñaki Zabaletta?" is the amazing magic of Iñaki Zabaletta described by Levent. It is a book full of powerful close-up magic, card magic and parlor magic routines that are all suited for the professional magician. This includes his FISM-winning act.

It's really rare that a successful professional shares, with great generosity, his own repertoire. Here you will not find pipe dreams, but rather fully-worked routines that have been refined across thousands of performances in front of a real audience.

This book includes:

  • Red & Black Phenomena: the ideal version of "Out of this World" for parlor magic environments
  • The "No Way" Bottle Production: Iñaki's amazing production of a bottle that doesn't require a jacket
  • The Spread Switch: a brand-new technique that was used to amaze Penn and Teller on Fool Us
  • Psycho: a card stabbing routine were the spectator shuffles all the cards
  • Ethereal deck: a deck vanish were the spectator holds the deck until the last second;
  • His FISM award-winning "Poker Routine" and many other professional and powerful routines.

"When I was in Manila, Philippines, I did one of Iñaki's tricks for Paul Potassy and he was blown away. Paul had no idea how it was accomplished. So who is Iñaki Zabaletta? Quite simply, he's a man that could come up with magic that could fool the best of them" Levent

"The techniques he is using are incredibly inventive, really brand new, cutting edge stuff. None of these is the standard stuff that in any magic book anyone it's gonna find" Penn Jillete

  • Ben asks: Some of the routines (eg Ethereal Deck) require gimmicks. Can these be made straightforwardly at home? Or will they need to be purchased separately?

    • 1. Jim answers: Purchased, unless you have the skills and materials to construct them.
    • 2. 75553 Federico answers: You can purchase them, or make them yourself! No gimmick is very hard, and almost all of them use the same elements, so you won't have to buy a lot of things! Very easy to make all of them.
