Abracadabra!

Just rezzed a 3-year-old thread.

Magic, baby!

I'd like to learn some magic tricks. I'm mostly interested in the close up, sleight-of-hand stuff. Any books you recommend? Preferably something I could pick up cheap (used) on Amazon. Or a helpful website.

Still interested? I recommend you invest in my enormously expensive course-by-webcam.

If that's a little out of budget I would be glad to recommend some perfectly adequate resources that should at least take you up to mediocrity.

The latter is my preferred option. The personal webcam course sounds fantastic, but I'm afraid most of my funds are tied up helping a Nigerian prince (I'm gonna make a huge return on my investment, though. And it's for a good cause).

This is the first book I ever had on sleight-of-hand and it's still great:

I recently saw someone perform the floating table trick - I understand it's a special table from a guy called Losander - I still can't figure out how the table works after youtube and google. Can you explain it in layman terms?

It's not my secret to tell.

I'd be glad to show you where to buy one - I think they start around $700. smile.gif

The concept was actually pioneered by a Dutch magician named Tommy Wonder - he does it with a birdcage and its an incredible routine.
