Jim Dracup is the author of a long out of print book, “A Magician Goes To Church”. That book has become one of the most requested and sought after works in the field of gospel magic. Since the publication of that first book, Jim has been gathering material and perfecting and polishing the routines that he uses on a day to day basis. That material has been published in this book “Magic With An Upward Look”.

“Magic With An Upward Look” contains only the best and the brightest material. There is, for instance, a chapter on the History of Magic and another on The Story of Silk. The author has also included an invaluable chapter on mixing music with magic….an area frequently left unexplored. And there is a chapter on the “Ps” of magic: Presentation, Performance, Personality, Preparation, Patter, Promotion and Publicity. Perhaps its possible you’ll find these chapters perceptive and penetrating.

In the second half of this book you will find detailed and complete routines for the following: Ball on Wand, Candle-Lite, Chinese Prayer Vase, Clippo, Dizzy Dial, Milk Bottle, Multiplying Money Tray, Phantom Tube, Red Ashes Cremation Papers, Repeat Bill Trick, Rigid Rope, Pavels Round the Square, Ball Vase, Comedy Bang Gun, Deluxe Dove Pan, Drawer Box, Forgetful Freddie, Fraidy-Cat Rabbit, Glass Levitation, High Sign, Hippity-Hop Rabbits, Metamorpho Spots, Vanishing Milk Pitcher, Run Rabbit Run, Silk Serenade, Squaring the Circle, Stop-Lite Trix, Professional Blindfold, Blooming Bouquet, Candle Thru Arm, Chinese Gong, Church Silk Cabinet, Beat-All Clock Vanish, Double Visible Block-Go, Firebowl to Flowers, Super Duper Balloon, Guillotine, Handcuff Escape, Handkerchief Frame, Hot Book, Key-R-Rect, Super-X Levitation, Goofus Plant, Multum In Parvo, Stocks of Zanzibar, Professors Nightmare, Rice Bowls, Skeleton in the Closet, Spikes Thru Balloon, Square Circle, Squeezaway Blocks, Vampire Block Escape, etc. A veritable treasure chest for those who perform magic with a gospel application.
