Hidden in Plain Sight by Kirk Charles

(c. 2005)

Hidden in Plain Sight is the most complete manual for marked cards ever published. Author Kirk Charles, a long-time professional magician, has written a book that explores this most powerful of all magical tools in great detail. From the history of marked cards to more modern developments in “reader” technology, Charles breaks down the advantages, disadvantages and nuances you’ll need to know. You’ll learn about commercially available decks as well as how to prepare your own custom-marked pack.

Additionally, Charles delves into the psychology involved in performing with a marked deck. From strategies for misdirection to key cards, stacked decks, and mnemonics, Charles explores every angle of the tips and tactics that can enhance tricks with any marked deck.

For the beginning card conjurer, an entire chapter of easy-to-do miracle material has been included. These tricks require little if any sleight of hand, yet pack a wallop when performed. Even amateurs, armed with a marked deck and these “Instant Miracles” will be amazing spectators in no time!

Best of all, Hidden in Plain Sight details the workings of the finest marked cards on the market, the Boris Wild Marked Deck. A lengthy chapter, written by Boris Wild himself, details the nuts and bolts of his stellar system, and includes two blockbuster tricks that will fool not only laymen but magicians as well!

For the serious student, a lengthy bibliography has been included, leading the reader to further information and uses for marked cards.

    Not being familiar with a great number of marked decks, the Boris Wild MD seems to me to be a fine gem. This books is exceedingly well written and the author credits numerous persons who’ve gone on before him. A nice read indeed.
