CardMagic by Richard Kaufman

(c. 1979) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

Details: It’s a 190-page (816 * 11) extravaganza with 67 terrific routines, effects, and sleights from the world’s greatest cardmen with over 725 illustrations by magic’s most-soughtafter artist. CARDMAGIC is already gaining a reputation as one of the top card books of recent years because it contains effects for the near novice to the most advanced expert, and it explains them in a clear lucid style with so many beautiful line drawings that it’s like having personal instruction. You can practically see every sleight being demonstrated for you by Richard Kaufman.
