Card College by Robert Giobbi Volume 5 (Book) You'll learn methods for covertly arranging stacks during performance, obtaining a duplicate of a spectator's signature with his knowledge, and secretly conveying cards to and from the deck!

It's finally here! In the fifth volume of the acclaimed Card College series, Roberto Giobbi has prepared a graduation party! In previous volumes the reader has been given a remarkable collection of tools for creating astonishing card magic. In the same vein, Volume 5 begins with a meaty chapter of new techniques and strategies, which include methods for covertly arranging stacks during performance, obtaining a duplicate of a spectator's signature with his knowledge, and secretly conveying cards to and from the deck-powerful tools indeed.

But then Volume 5 diverges from the established Card College formula. Judging that the reader now has more than a sufficient number of tools in his grasp, Mr. Giobbi provides eight chapters filled with tricks and routines that illustrate how various techniques are applied to create world-class card magic. These effects, however, are not mere constructions meant for teaching. Most have been drawn from Roberto Giobbi's professional repertoire-and because of this, even the classics of card magic are given a fresh gleam as Giobbi adds refinements won from years of performing experience.

His choice of material is impeccable, featuring not only original effects and handlings of his own, but tricks and routines by world-masters as well. One finds such gems as Fred Kaps' presentation for The Signed Card in Box, along with Giobbi's cunning treatment of this modern classic, Henry Christ's fabulous Ace routine and a superb handling of a forgotten masterpiece by Charlie Miller. And everything is taught with the clarity and attention to detail for which the Card College series has become known. Open this book and welcome to the party-prepare to graduate!

Some of the topics covered in Volume Five include:

  • Making Secret Setups
  • False Shuffles
  • Obtaining Duplicate Signatures
  • Quick Tricks
  • Openers and Routines with the Aces
  • Favorite Effects
  • Gambling Demonstrations
  • Mental Mysteries
All in all, Volume Five features 34 professional-caliber routines that have astounded audiences the world over.

5 stars for being a fantastic and suprisingly lengthy addition to the first 4 volumes. How did he write so much stuff and so clear and well structured? One section descibes duplicating a spectators signature, though I personally find this quite impractical. Way to much effort for a very personal effect.

Hi. This is your official PenguinMagic reviewer, B_Magic!

The Card College series is similar to books like "Modern Coin Magic" for coin workers, or "Royal Road to Card Magic" or "Expert Card Technique" for card guys...it's a MUST HAVE. The book is a staple in card magic that will not only give you a fantastic start into card magic, but will give you an excellent source of sleights and effects for years and years to come.

I bought the Card College series years ago, and even after making a successful living in magic for over a decade now I still benefit from the books. Everytime I flip through the books I find something new, or something I'd forgotten, or something that I'm now ready for that I wasn't before.

You simply must get these books. If you are even reading any reviews on these books just add them to card now. It's well worth it.
