"Slick. Cool. Superb on all levels. Beyond the exceptional caliber of the effects is John’s brilliant thinking behind it all." -John Guastaferro

"It's a must have, so you will have a great foundation in card magic." -Dan Harlan

“This great mix of material and methods shows how Bannon continues to think outside the card box. Once again Bannon triumphs!” -Raj Madhok

John Bannon’s highly-engineered, yet easy-to-do brand of magic shines in this retrospective.

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.

Yet, notwithstanding this extraordinary breadth, no gaffs are employed and no difficult moves are required. 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.

High caliber has been my favorite card magic book in the last 10 years. It contains magic that people LOVE to see. A near beginner can work through this material, but the effects are worthy of being in any Professional's working repertoire.
