Sorry, this item is out of stock

This out-of-print book is a collection of 60 tricks, mostly with cards, along with an assortment of some non-card material including Cups and Balls, coins, rubber bands, rings, ring and rope, and billiard balls, most of which rely upon fairly basic technical requirements.

Colombini prefers subtlety over sleights, and simplified sleights over challenging ones. Hence, within its covers, the reader will find variants of popular contemporary card conjuring plots, such as Vernon's Triumph, Curry's Out of This World, Searles' Cannibal Cards, and so on, all achieved with a minimum of technical effort. This book is beautifully illustrated by Tom Jorgenson. 

This is a gently used book in very good condition. One corner is dinged a bit due to normal shelf wear, and the previous owner inscribed a card chart on the the first blank page of the book...presumably regarding something taught within the book. Otherwise, the text is clean.
