Illustrated Directions On How To Do Over 165 Card Tricks and Stunts

To the magician and to most audiences, card manipulations are the most fascinating type of card trick.

Since the manipulator's skill is the only determining factor, once a degree of card dexterity is acquired the performer can go on to learn tricks sure to entertain, at any time, with no further preparation, using any available deck of cards for the performance.

In this five-book series, Jean Hugard, master performer on stage and with small groups, teaches the passes, palming methods, shuffles, arm spreads, color reverses, sleights, flourishes, set-ups, and tricks in the best professional versions. After showing the basic manipulations he develops a number of exceptional tricks where the manipulations are used. A number of illustrations and step-by-step explanations teach each detail, as the trick would be given in a performance. By working through these tricks, from the simple to the complex, the magician learns his skills in a professional manner and also gains a wide repertoire of specific tricks. Throughout the book a great number of manipulations and over a hundred tricks are explained.

From Passes, To Palms, To Controls, to Colour Changes. this book covers a wide range of "sleights" and 'moves'

as well as some introductions to 'manipulations' and 'flourishes'


even if your not that into basic 'manipulations' and 'flourishes' for the price it's still a highly quality book for the other sleights mentioned

Jean Hugard puts out classic essential magic literature that teaches move still used highly today!

Good little book on Card Manipulations, has all the basics, on controls, palms and then gets into some actual manipulations, like back palms and flourishy type things. Though the instructions are easy to understand the pictures/illustrations are more of a distraction and make it harder to understand if you rely on them to help. Something for everyone to find here like all the good Dover books! Very reasonable price, so I say that it's a good one to have in the library!
