Magicians’ Tricks: How They  Are Done by Hatton and Plate –  The legendary Charlie Miller called this book ”his favorite magic book”, and that is quite an endorsement. There is a large section on card magic, with excellent descriptions of passes, palms, forces, changes, a second deal, false shuffles, and a very good selection of effects. There are also chapters on magic with coins, balls, eggs, handkerchiefs, and after dinner tricks. Several well known performers, such as Okito, Karl Germain, and Will Goldston contributed effects as well.
