Inner and Further Inner Secrets of Card Magic make up the finest-ever
collection of top-quality tricks and sleights. Get them on your shelf
and you'll be set for life...for this type of material will be fresh in
50 years time." -Harry Stanley, The Gen January 1969
Perhaps Hofzinser said it best, "card effects are the poetry of conjuring." If that is so, Dai Vernon was a master poet.
Beginning at the tender age of
five, David Frederick Wingfield Verner passionately embraced the art of
magic with all his heart and soul-he never let go. Nothing got between
him and his lifelong quest for perfection at his craft.
His well-grounded knowledge of the
principles of conjuring and his skillful knack for expanding upon those
principles gained him world-wide admiration. His many innovations have
become "the stuff that dreams are made of." Magicians respected him
because he respected magic. It is well documented that he had a
profound influence on his contemporaries as well as on the subsequent
"new wave" of close-up practitioners that faithfully followed his
teachings.Cervon, Jennings, Klause, Skinner, et al, they felt "The
Vernon Touch"...they still do...so will you.
Thoughtfully pursue the pages of
this book with cards in hand and you'll soon realize whey they all
lovingly call Dai Vernon, "The Professor."
240 pages, hardbound with dustjacket.
