The Dave Campbell Legacy by Peter Duffie

(c. 2004) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

Details: Dave Campbell was one of Scotland’s unsung magical greats and, in this newly released hardbound volume, Dave Campbell’s finest material has been made available for card enthusiasts everywhere. Many of the effects included within the book were purchased from Dave Campbell by Martin Breese and by arrangement this exclusive material has now been reproduced.

Dave Campbell’s effects carry the impact of an imaginary collaboration between Roy Walton and Ken Brooke and such is the treasure herein, you will find it very hard to decide which routines to leave out of your repertoire!

Within the pages of this beautifully printed book you’ll find such Campbell classics as IRISH POKER HAND, BINGO, THE DEFECTORS, HOUDINI ESCAPES and many, many others.

    EAsy to follow

    The effects in this book are easy to follow and are easily fitted into anyones routines.
    They are hard hitting and will fool all laypeople and magicians alike.
    There are not to many moves that have to be practiced and any magician will be able to perofrm all the effects with minimal practice (although as always a beginner will need to practice practice practice. But this would be the same for any trick with any beginner)

    I enjoyed this book and use some of the routines all the time
