Neale - Book]]> http://whenyouwishmagic.com/store/product/breaking-our-magic-wands-by-robert-e-neale--book/ http://whenyouwishmagic.com/store/product/breaking-our-magic-wands-by-robert-e-neale--book/ Thu, 19 Oct 2017 22:19:04 GMT
When magicians die, it is customary to break a wand to symbolize the end of their magic. But as Shakespeare's Prospero shows, there might be other reasons or seasons to break our magic wands. What might they be? What options do we have for ending our time with magic?

In this book of heartfelt insight, Robert E. Neale, one of magic's deepest thinkers and now eighty-eight years old, playfully explores our options through 6 unpublished performance pieces and 4 short essays. And, as you will quickly discover, this book about breaking wands is Bob Neale's own performance of this powerful ritual in his swan song and gift to magicians everywhere.

Perfect bound: 8.5" x 11", 56 pages

"Clear, straightforward, visual. The kind of magic I like!"
- Henry Evans

From the creator of "Vertigo" and "Odyssey", Osmosis is coming: a link between a ring and a rubber band, so disconcerting and visual, that both materials will seem permeable.

Conditions are extreme: you give someone the rubber band to examine and you ask for a ring from someone in the audience. The spectator grabs the rubber band and the ring (both clearly appear to be separated) and then the spectator closes his or her hand. When the spectator opens the hand, the ring is now interlaced with the rubber band. Everything happens in the spectator's hand! And there's more. The ring can separate from the rubber band many times. It is extremely visual.

How is it possible? By Osmosis


1. You hand out the rubber band for examination
2. The ring belongs to someone in the audience
3. It is not an optical effect
4. And also... the rubber band can be given away!


1. A specially designed gimmick
2. Online instructions
3. Different routines and hyper-visual effects

Easy to do
Instant reset
Ideal for always carrying with you

<![CDATA[Teaching Magic: A Book for Students and Teachers of the Art by Eugene Burger - Book]]> http://whenyouwishmagic.com/store/product/teaching-magic-a-book-for-students-and-teachers-of-the-art-by-eugene-burger--book/ http://whenyouwishmagic.com/store/product/teaching-magic-a-book-for-students-and-teachers-of-the-art-by-eugene-burger--book/ Mon, 16 Oct 2017 22:17:02 GMT
From the beginning of his illustrious career, Eugene Burger has demonstrated that performing magic is different from presenting a trick or a puzzle. It requires that we genuinely astonish people with an experience of the impossible.

But how can we learn to perform magic that meets this high standard? Who can teach us how to do so? In this book for students and teachers of magic, master magician Eugene Burger explores the path for learning how to perform magic that has exceptional impact on our audiences.

Includes: 7 previously unpublished routines and access to videos of Eugene performing 5 of the routines.

Hardcover: 6" x 9", 182 pages

Note from Lawrence Hass, September 23, 2017:

In early 2017, Eugene Burger and I started working intensely on this book, Teaching Magic. It was sent off to the printer before the diagnosis of his terminal illness, and so it is untouched by awareness of his death, which occurred on August 8, 2017. This book is an extraordinary, poignant testament to an important part of Eugene's legacy.


"His new book, Teaching Magic: A Book for Students and Teachers of the Art, once again reveals why Eugene Burger is one of our most important Magical Artists."
- Lance Burton

"One of magic's truly great teachers shares his ideas about learning, and the result is a rare case of introspective generosity. Prepare to engage!"
- Max Maven

"Thank you, Eugene! Thank you for your shared wisdom and also for always showing us, complete and alive, the thread of Magic Illusion!"
- Juan Tamariz

<![CDATA[Cardio by Liam Montier - DVD]]> http://whenyouwishmagic.com/store/product/cardio-by-liam-montier--dvd/ http://whenyouwishmagic.com/store/product/cardio-by-liam-montier--dvd/ Wed, 11 Oct 2017 22:19:03 GMT Cardio is something of a 'concept album' - card tricks that are efficient, with a clear end picture, and all using nothing more than a regular deck of cards. No gaffs, gimmicks or shenanigans. Just grab any deck and you're ready to go.

Each of the seven tricks featured is a real 'do-er'. You'll be desperate to get out and fry people with these routines. In Liam Montier's inimitable style, they use simple, clear methods (well within the reach of most card handlers), and are super fun to perform.

Here's Liam to give you a quick breakdown of the tricks you'll be able to learn:

Back Hand Slap - The classic 'Slap' revelation updated and refreshed, as you sneak a spectator's card into their own hand... and then change all their other cards into a royal flush! The idea here was to revitalize something that lots of magicians know and learn early on (the slap revelation) and turbo-charge it, making it a full routine. One simple move set's it all up be-fore your spectator even knows you've started!

Twisted - This starts off with a 'Twisting The Aces' handling that I'm very proud of - there's no displacements or discrepan-cies, and all four turn over clean as a whistle. Then suddenly, the Aces reveal two chosen cards in a VERY unexpected way! It's a more technical routine than some of the others, but the moves are very well covered and justified, so it's a great one to learn to give you confidence with some essential but more challenging moves.

Reality Burp - In terms of sheer effect, this is hard to beat. There's so many changes that happen (a packet of cards ALL change into a selection, and then into a second selection, and then... to KINGS!!!). Then there's a LOVELY moment where they think the two cards under the card box are going to be the selections, but there's ANOTHER back-fire transposition. It's like card-karate!

The Hof - I've experimented with many handlings of the classic 'Hofzinser Ace Trick', but this is the solution I love the most. Framed as a packet trick, it combines simple ideas from Jack Parker and Roy Walton to make a very surprising revelation and transposition. It also makes a perfect trick to do once you have produced four Aces, so you can easily routine this into a set or act.

The Other Thing - This one I've worked on a lot over the years, and I love it! You take a borrowed shuffled deck, and show the four kings spread throughout the deck. Those same Kings immediately appear EVERYWHERE! One you pluck from your pocket, one from the table, one is under the card box and one INSIDE the card case! All with NO PREPARATION AND SIMPLE MOVES! Learn it and I bet you WILL perform it.

Swing of Things - This easy routine employs a necklace as a pendulum and can be played any way you want... serious magic... slightly hippyish weirdness... or lightly (with the TERRIBLE joke I tip!!). Don't overlook it because it doesn't use much technique - the impact and clarity of the end picture really hits hard.

Pop Hoff - A really unusual Hofzinser's Ace variation with a startling visual production and then a kind of reverse Blind Lem-on Aces, where the Aces in your hand suddenly fuse together to make the selection! It's clean, quick and efficient. You will get a lot of fun out of this one!
