Versatile Card Magic by Frank Simon

(c. 1982,2002)

Mike Caveney never dreamed that the book he published way back in 1981, written by an unknown author, would become one of the most sought after books in card magic with copies selling for over $200. Versatile Card Magic has become a bonafied cult classic. Those lucky enough to own a copy of the limited first edition know that Frank’s methods are diabolical and the effects created by them are without equal. Here, at long last, is the much anticipated expanded edition of Frank’s book but, like Earl Nelson’s Variations Revisited, this is by no means a reprint. The text as been corrected and expanded, there are 283 brand new, crystal-clear photographs and the new size allows it to lay flat on the table for ease of study. The only thing that has stayed the same is the great magic and those famous Jerry’s Nugget cards that appear in the photos.
