Overview
In this comprehensive new book, Nicholas Einhorn opens with an introduction to the most important events and names in the art's rich history, from the earliest street performers to the hi-tech television and stage shows today. There then follows more than 320 tricks you can learn to do yourself, ranging from card, money and mind magic, optical illusions, and close-up magic, to confounding puzzles, party tricks and larger-scale stand-up and stage illusions. More than 3,200 clear step-by-step color photographs reveal the skills you need to bend a knife, make money appear from thin air, predict the future, or cut a person in two. Close-up secret views show exactly how each illusion is performed, and expert tips on preparing each trick and practicing the patter enable the reader to achieve a polished performance. A special section on putting on a show provides invaluable advice on planning your own performance. This includes selecting a venue, sending out invitations, choosing music and costumes, setting up the stage and practising your stage-craft, as well as ideas for show running orders and sample programs.
