BIG & little (Pierre Mayer) – By Deana Murray

The world, according to Pierre Mayer, is enamored with BIG and GRAND. It plays well on stage. But Pierre has often felt that behind these extra-large illusions could be versions of something you could hold in your hand. So, in the span of the somewhat recent years of his “retirement,” Pierre has taken the lead […]

Rock On – Jon Racherbaumer – January 2011

Tony Slydini consults with a young Jon Racherbaumer Some gimmicked cards have a sporadic life. They come on the scene, arouse interest for a time, and then fade from view. Such a gimmicked card is the Acrobatic Card, a card with a tensile, longitudinal half-flap that folds over from side-to-side. It is like the spring-flap […]

Rock On – Jon Racherbaumer – July 2010

Connectivity is one of today’s ruling buzzwords. By the time you read this installment, the Essential Magic Conference will be history. This will have been an explosive experiment in “connectivity” and will usher in a new era in how magicians will learn, share, and collaborate.

Aldo Colombini – Hof-mini-maxi

Columnist: Aldo Colombili This is not an earth-shaker but it can be a nice interlude to something heavier. I’ll explain the basic idea with small and regular cards. The basic plot belongs, I believe, to Roy Walton, the clever cardman from Glasgow, Scotland. Several other magicians have explored this effect and have come up with […]

Paul Cummins – Phone Home

Columnist: Paul Cummins Hereís a routine Iíve been using now for about six months. I admit Iíve used it mostly for magicians and it has left them baffled; the few laymen Iíve performed it for had no clue whatsoever and everyone Iíve performed it for were surprised to be holding their selection at the end […]

Paul Cummins – Beating The Heat

Columnist: Paul Cummins In Workers 5, Mike Close describes a diabolical method for performing the venerable Invisible Deck routine with a non-gaffed deck of cards. Within his typically terrific description of the routine he references Alan Ackerman’s “Impromptu Ultra Mental” from Here’s My Card. He also mentions that Mr. Ackerman’s cites, in Las Vegas Kardma, […]
