Have you ever wanted to study or perform the Rising Cards? If so, you’ve come to the right place!

Some fifty further card effects follow, and incorporate touches from such luminaries as Joe Berg, Richard Himber and the Davenport family. If coins are more your thing, look no further. Here are a wealth of routines, from the Miser’s Dream to the Traveling Coins, that fit right into close-up, parlor and stage repertoires. Stage practitioners, meanwhile, will relish Dr. Albo’s thorough illustrated explanations of a variety of approaches to the Nest of Boxes, the Change Bag and many other props. Okito completists will enjoy learning the secrets of more of Theo Bamberg’s most prized routines in a special “Okito Revisited” section, while historians will relish the book’s thirty-nine concluding pages, which reproduce, in full color, magic posters from the likes of Kellar, Thurston and Houdini.
