Magic Dealers might as well close!
I have spent a fortune on magic tricks and it amuses me how easily Richard Osterlind performs these incredible miracles with such every day objects. When you see him go through classic effects by $link(http://www.qualitymagicbooks.com/?nd=list&keywords=koran target=_blank, Koran), $link(http://www.qualitymagicbooks.com/?nd=list&keywords=anneman target=_blank, Anneman), $link(http://www.qualitymagicbooks.com/?nd=list&keywords=corinda target=_blank, Corinda), Hoy, and others using precisely the methods and routines that they employed, without all of the "clever" enhancements that have come along over the years, it is really quite mind blowing.
It also becomes very clear, as I pointed out in my book review of $link(http://www.qualitymagicbooks.com/?nd=full&key=1709 target=_blank, Bruce Elliot’s Classic Secrets of Magic), that you really don’t need a lot of money to be a world class magician or mentalist. Just practice and presentation and lots of it.
Now it is fun buying "clever" magic tricks. Just don’t try to convince yourself that you need them to amaze and entertain an audience. You don’t and Richard Osterlind demonstrates this oh so clearly.
