Rusduck (J. Russell Duck, 1909-1959) was a Pennsylvania police chief who wrote one of magic's most articulate magazines, The Cardiste, before his early death at 49. His pioneering work with stacked decks and gambling demonstrations in his hand-typed journal and other magazines still resonates in today's card magic.
This CD features more than ninety effects, many of them self-working, with the emphasis on strong presentations and routining. Rusduck emphasized clear themes and powerful climax routines, and both the working professional and the hardcore card expert will find dozens of enticing effects here!
