Trevor Lewis ESOLC "that's CLOSE UP" -- a Great little Book of Amazing Close-up items from Trevor Lewis, edited by Philip Willmarth. You'll be one of the few "in the know," as most performers have been unaware of this book for a long time.

Contains Close-up Routines using many types of items -- Cards, Coins, Benson Bowl, Tamariz Rabbits, Sponges and more!

Highly Recommended for all close-up performers.

Contents include:

Chapter One: Focus on Cards


It's in the Bag: Card is selected and returned. Deck is wrapped in plastic food bag. Selected card penetrates the bag.

Trevor's Technique: Double Riffle Control: 2 card control

Card Shark Two: Card is selected and returned. Card case represents a shark and runs toward the helpless swimmer deck. The deck is riffled and the selected card pops out. Well, half the card pops out, in a jagged piece -- the other half is found in the shark (card case).

The Mine Detector: A selected card found by a mine detector (made from wood and bang wand). When the card is turned over, its back now has magician's name and phone number.

Reflections: A card is peeked at by a spectator and revealed. Shows how to make a special peek deck that can be shuffled.

Coin Selector: A coin vanishes and locates the selected card.

Monte Plus: Nice "in the hands" Monte using standard cards and bent corner ruse.

Monte Plus Twist: As above, but the key card is held horizontal.

Monte Plus Elmsley: Can use as an intro to others.

Trevor's Technique: A Zarrow Zwindle. Poker hand idea.

Chapter Two: Double Focus on Cards

Add on Plus: Alternative to Braue Add On move.

Le Carte Lewis: Three cards are peeked at. The Magician removes three cards and fans them to each spectator, each denying their card is there. Suddenly the selections appear!

Trevor's Swivel Force Swindle: A force

Three Cards Across: Two spectators are each given 10 cards. Three cards travel from one to the other.

The Five Card Mental Trick: A variation of Dai Vernon's 5 Card Mental Force.

The Trevor Lewis Second Deal: In 4 Lessons

Fake Middle Deal: Simulation of the middle deal using seconds.

Spectator Finds a Card: Three approaches to have a second spectator find the first spectator's selection.

Chapter Three:

The Para-Die Prediction: Card with pictures of 2 dice are shown, each adding up to a different total. Spectator selects one, and it matches a prediction.

The Perfect Match!: Two dice are shaken in a large matchbox. End total is predicted.

May I have the Envelope Please?: Envelope utility

Borrowed Bill Burning Bright: Application of envelope utility

Trevor's Benson Bowl Routine: With a bowl, 4 sponges, and a toy plastic dinner roll. Three sponge balls appear beneath the bowl. The balls travel from hand to bowl, and eventually the roll is discovered.

Chapter Four: Focus on Coins

Trevor's Coins in Tumbler: Four coins to cup routine. No gimmicks.

Coins Through the What Else: (Table!). No gimmicks

Me-Too Matrix: Sympathetic coins/four coin assembly. No gimmicks.

Hole Card: After several comedic false starts, a coin is pushed through a too small hole in a card.

Chapter Five: Focus on Comedy

Coincidence: Strips of paper are torn and eliminated until only one remains. It matches the number of cigarettes in a jar.

The Blazing Match Box (Book): Gimmick to light matches.

The Matchless Prediction: Book of matches is shown with some already burnt. Two cards are selected. The 7 card selected matches the 7 burnt heads! The 8... doesn't match anything. Suddenly the book of matches catches on fire, the fifteen matches matching the 7 + 8 card combo.

The Fetsch Force: Use for above trick.

A Little Light Humor: Match gag.

Watch!: Coin tossed hand-to-hand turns into a watch.

Blow Die: Die is "blown" up.

The Razor Blade Trick: Stack of blades string themselves. Lots of squeamish comedy!

Broken and Restored Spectacles: All borrowed.

The Sharpshooter: A hole is shot in a die at the selected number.

A Funny Puzzle: Crossword gag.

Chapter Six: Focus on Dealer Effects

Flog - A Sponge Ball Routine: A full sponge ball routine based on golf with comedy patter. Splitting a ball, in the spectator's hand, and a "FORE (4)" finish.

Die and Domino Divination: Dominoes used to match a die selection.

Tamariz Rabbits Rabbits Rabbits: Comedy bit using the Apple cards.

The Brema Nut: Nut off string routine using a spring-close ring box.

Commercial Chop Cup routine: A quick, straightforward non-insulting routine with double load.

Tip from Trevor: Restaurant/hotel tip.
