Joe Ovette was a contemporary of Houdini’s and Annemann’s and he did some really over the top stunts.
Deck switches, a forcing deck, and an unusual key card are just some of the items here. Also included are effects with watches, flowers, and producing smoke from your head. Don’t miss the fascinating chapter on magicians’ tables that is. Ovette was quite opinionated concerning magic and magic magazines, and there are some essays that are very entertaining.
This little booklet is just a taste of how clever and ahead of his time Ovette was.
