Alongside the double lift and the pinky break, the cull is perhaps the most important move in card magic. Few people do the move correctly, and even fewer use the move for anything other than secretly sorting cards. That all changes with Close Culls.

Singapore's Harapan Ong is a leading expert on all things cull, and here he teaches the move in gorgeous, photographic detail. Everyone reading will learn the move. And then he explores new and exciting principles with the cull. Finally, he puts it all together with a collection of extraordinary and offbeat effects. This is a definitive treatise on this underused but critical sleight.

Like all of Vanishing Inc.'s publications, they have worked carefully with author Harapan Ong to produce an elegant, accurate, and fascinating collection. They treated this booklet as if it were a hardbound book. You'll notice the quality immediately when you read through it, in both the instruction and the layout. The production values are what you expect from Vanishing Inc: cutting edge artwork, slick design, carefully edited prose, all in an attractive booklet.

This book was pre-sold at The Session 2014, and sold through the entire stock in under fifteen minutes. Now it is finally available to the magic world.

Here is a more detailed list of what you will find inside:

  • The Spread Cull - A detailed explanation of the move

"Harapan fooled me so badly with his cull I had to get his book. His cull is about the best I've seen and his book contains not only great routines using the cull, but some great original techniques as well. And the puns throughout are hystericull."
- Guy Hollingworth

"This is an excellent book for learning the Hofzinser Cull and some clever applications."
- Justin Higham

"Harapan Ong, the brilliant young card magician from Singapore, now living in London, a Member of The Magic Circle, has written Close Culls, a brilliant book on one of card magic's most useful, yet most often neglected, sleights ? the Cull. The well-illustrated book contains a chapter on how to perform the Cull which has many useful tips, plus several variations, and 12 good tricks which use the techniques taught. The level is intermediate to advanced, and if you put in the work your magic is sure to improve."
- Matthew Field

"I've seen Harapan perform some of these tricks live and he completely fooled me even though I knew he was culling. So I bought the book and wasn't disappointed. It takes a unique look at what the cull is truly capable of and teaches some brilliant tricks along the way."
- Stephen Long

Pages: 118 - Perfect bound.
