John Bannon has just released a new book titled "High Caliber".
Over forty complete routines are described in Bannon’s easy-going readable style. Here are the tricks and the clever, innovative thinking behind them. Collected from Bannon’s publications over the ten years since his internationally best-selling Dear Mister Fantasy, you’ll find an impressive variety as well:
Sophisticated “fractal” packet tricks, Contemporary gambling demonstrations, Ultramodern Ace assemblies, Unorthodox “garden path” tricks, Unconventional transpositions, Refined mental mysteries.
High Caliber covers the magical waterfront with a fresh, original view.
Virtually all of the routines use regular cards, most are impromptu, and quite a few are self-working. Typical of Bannon’s work, each layered construction has been polished until the trick has a point, a purpose, and a place in the magical firmament.
