Rim Shots by Harry Lorayne

(c. 1973) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

Details: Besides Lorayne’s typical ability to compose simple, clear card magic, Rim Shots features a great variety of technical innovations including: the One-Handed Top Palm, the Ribbon-Spread Palm, the One-Hand Instant Crimp, the Lap Switch, the Persistence of Vision Control, the Status Quo Shuffle, Amazing Prediction and HaLo Cut, HaLo Aces and much more. All of this is explained in a fun and unpretentious style of writing.

Illustrated by William A. Morales

Rim Shots is also a Force Book. The 21st word in every trick is “that.” It is available in both paperback and hard cover, and both versions have the same Forced Word feature.
