THE ROYAL ROAD TO CARD MAGIC

A rewarding book for the serious amateur in card conjuring, written by a top- flight instructor- a book which presents a graduated approach, explaining progressively difficult principles and selections of sleight-of-hand, for a beginner determined to become a more than average ""magician"". How to do- how to perform with grace, skill, effect -- shuffles, flourishes, glides, palming, lifts, passes, reverses and forces; how to frame a presentation, how to build the patter to the personality, how to practice so that tricks may be shown anywhere, with any deck of cards. The number of people who are interested is legion. Sell this along with the Gibson book, Professional Magic for Amateurs (Prentice-Hall- see report P. 380). They supplement each other.
