PDF – Wehman Bros’ 125 Card Tricks and Sleight of Hand


If you’re looking for inspiration for your next card performance, look no further…


From the same publishers who brought you material from Herrmann, Thurston and Heller comes a comprehensive collection of card tricks. Effects range from self-working wonders to more involved routines, but don’t be fooled by the concise descriptions and occasionally antiquated patter suggestions — plenty of the tricks in this book will still baffle twenty-first-century audiences.

Historians of magic will be interested to discover a hundred-year-old precursor to Paul Harris’s “Solid Deception” under the heading “To produce a mouse from a pack of cards,” while magicians seeking to add a touch of nostalgia to their acts will undoubtedly find lots to work with in the quaint phrasing employed in the trick titles and explanations — a magical change becomes a “prestidigitorial metamorphosis”, for example, and spectators are invited to inspect cards by means of the charming phrase: “You will perceive any of them will bear examination.” After the tricks comes a brief overview of cheating methods, which includes a selection of fascinating anecdotes from the gaming table.
