PDF – Slow Sleights by E. Brian MacCarthy


A wide variety of clever techniques, all of which are best performed with less haste… And less speed.


It’s easy for magicians and non-magicians to fool themselves into thinking that the quickness of the hand deceives the eye, especially when it comes to manipulation acts performed on stage. This little book by E. Brian MacCarthy is structured around the novel premise that every technique explained in it should be performed as slowly as possible. Slow Sleights begins with a selection of billiard-ball moves, before E. Brian MacCarthy turns his attention to thimbles, coins, cards and silk handkerchiefs. A fun and unusual publication.
