The Five Points in Magic by Juan Tamariz - Book
"If you wanted to buy only one book on (practical!) theory, make it this one. Brilliant in every way!"
"There are many good books about magic. There are many fewer great books about magic. Books, though, essential for every serious magician are rare. Juan Tamariz's Five Points in Magic is one of the rare ones."
Discover the Five Points - and the Secrets of Using Them!
Long out of print and widely sought after, The Five Points in Magic is Juan Tamariz's highly regarded study of the physical and psychological secrets that use the body to fool the mind. He shows in detail how each of these five possessions:
- THE EYES
- THE VOICE
- THE HANDS
- THE FEET
- THE BODY
In The Five Points in Magic, Juan Tamariz teaches magicians that it is not the hands alone that deceive, but also the feet, the body, the eyes and the voice. It is only through a full understanding of all five of these tools of nature and communication that the conjurer can spin a complete web of illusion that traps and then transports his audiences into the astonishing realm he has prepared for them.
These five tools are essential and invaluable to the stage conjurer and the close-up magician alike, and they are clearly analyzed and taught by Tamariz from his vantage point of years of successful professional performance in both venues. Tamariz enhances the clarity of his ideas and explanations with solid examples drawn from his own repertoire. As the reader learns seminal principles, he also learns these professional effects and techniques:
- The Appearing Card on Handkerchief
- Crossing the Gaz
- Double Crossing the Gaze
- The Ribbon Spread Force
- Al's Topper (a book test)
- Protean Poker
- Upper Cut (a Tamarisian study of Larry Jennings's 'Coin Cut')
The text and design of this new edition have been revised to provide added clarity for readers of this valuable modern classic of magic.
