Imagine....

You sense the colors of playing cards through a solid table.

You stack four Poker hands in less than ten seconds.

You kick any named number of cards off a tabled deck.

You put chaos to order.

You magically move cards to any positions in the pack at will.

You transpose a card from between a spectator's hands to under his watch.

You instantly memorize the order of a shuffled deck.

This booklet will not enable you to any of those things. Most of them are, after all, impossible. Fortunately, however, we can make our spectators experience these impossibilities anyway. We do that by creating fictions, In this case Card Fictions.

It may sound obvious, but it is this simple realization that makes magic as a performing art possible in the first place: Evoking the feeling of impossibility does not require actually doing the impossible. However, it will always require a team-effort. A fiction is created in somebody's mind. Equipped with those marvels called human perception and the human mind our spectators play a necessary and active part in the process. All that we performers do is to provide adequate input. Then we lean back and relax as the spectators themselves spontaneously and effortlessly complete the job and create fascinating, impossible - magical - fictions.

First, coverage and quality of the book are exceptional. The structure and layout of each effect is really interesting. Some effects require more work than others but all is absolutely achievable. I loved the comments after each trick. Some passages in the book are more about psychology and support well the rest is more technical. Several principles are used and can really help you lead to develop new things. I enjoyed this book and I recommend it to anyone seeking a quality book with relevant materials. The book contains a total of 7 effects and everything is done in 96 pages. Pit Hartling thank you for this good work
