Magic is universally recognized as a wonderful form of entertainment. This book reveals the secrets of a wide range of tricks and explains how to achieve a polished performance. It explains how to grip, shuffle and control cards, do tricks with glasses, napkins, cutlery, straws, cups, sugar cubes, matches, string and rope, and how to create the impression of mind-reading and thought transference. Once you have learnt the basic techniques, there are also many tricks to perform with coins and banknotes.

The book also includes an illustrated history of magic and magicians, from the origins of the art in Egypt through the 19th and 20th centuries to the magic of today, featuring Siegfried and Roy, David Copperfield, and David Blaine.

Features over 1000 color photographs showing both the audience’s and performer’s perspectives.
