Walter Gibson renowned authority on magic presents: What's New in Magic

Magic means mystery. Magic means fascination. And although magic has existed as an art for thousands of years, there are still new ways to astound and excite the young and novel twists to charm and amuse the not-so-young. Walter Gibson, was one of this country's foremost experts on magic, has gathered nearly 100 fascinating new and improved feats of magic in this intriguing book of bafflement.

What's New in Magic contains tricks and feats that may be used by any performer- professional or amateur. And there are sections on:

Mental Magic: Tricks that may be presented as casual perplexities or may be built up into giant feasts of mentalism; this section ranges from thought control and predictions to telepathy and mind reading.

Card Sleights: Magical diversions, some brand-new, others popular stand-bys -- each one presented with a subtle new feature for a unique twist.

Magic With Skill: Feats of ordinary skill enhanced and boosted into the realm of the incredible by Mr. Gibson's development and use of devices -- gimmicks-- that some sleight-of-hand artists have ignored; here the magician can learn how to make a ball pass mysteriously thorough a handkerchief or how to make coins multiply with amazing rapidity and seemingly without end.

These are only three of the seven sections of new wonders and fun for the up-to-date magician who wants to continue to bewilder his audience with ingenious effects.

Contents:
Mental Miracles, Card Sleights and Routines, Card Effects w/Prepared Cards, Magic with Skill, Impromptu Tricks, Selected Secrets.
