Above the Fold by Rich Aviles and Vanishing Inc. Magic - Book
Price: $25.00
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!

From the foreword by Daniel Garcia: "Some of the most clever, modern card thinking I have ever seen."

Published by Vanishing Inc. Magic, Above the Fold is the debut collection from one of magic's most exciting new talents: Rich Aviles. In this intelligent, praiseworthy collection of card and close-up material, Aviles details thirteen effects and seven moves, each one explained with equal parts clarity and wit.

We have had enormous success with publishing SMALL BUT POTENT magic books-we like to present only the strongest material of a clever magic thinker. Every single trick is worth reading, practicing, and performing. Here are some highlights:

Fax Machine: A card animates, moving on its own power, and changes into another card as it moves through the deck. It's kind of like an ungimmicked rising card effect ex- cept... a card doesn't rise.

Ballerina Change: With a flourish, the top card is extended away from the deck. A wave of the hand and it changes into a different card. It only lasts a couple seconds, though, until it visibly changes back to the first card without any cover.

Pocket Protectors: This trick is extremely rare in that it will completely fool magician audiences and entertain non-magicians! This is the best trick construction we've seen in a long time!

Bystander: Adhering to the strict rules of the International Brotherhood of Magic People, the magician is forced to take a break from performing. In the meantime, the deck is handed over to a spectator who unwittingly does the impossible. The magician then discloses that he predicted the spectator's every move.

"Above the Fold is refreshing-a collection that demonstrates real ingenuity and a DIFFERENT approach to card magic. I enjoyed every page and trick."
Joshua Jay

"I've known Rich and his work for years, and am so pleased he is finally releasing his material. Everyone is going to love Above the Fold."
- Joel Givens

The book is smaller than most other magic books but don't let that deceive you. Vanishing inc knows how to make a awesome magic book and I'm going to pick up all the other books they put out.

The book is funny and entertaining throughout. The DIY fire wallet is hilarious especially for when you are hanging out with magicians.

These effects are more pretty much all impromptu

Big Black Arrow is an exception, a nice touch with your ipod touch/iphone. Should fool the crap out of people.

Pocket Protectors is very nice and one i will use when I don't have my Annihilation Deck on me. Very nice!

He has a couple sandwich effects and changes that are worth the time and practice.

Get this book, it's cheap, and well worth the cash.

Excellent Report this review

First I want to thank the guys at Penguin for recommend this book to me. Using the live chat feature I asked for a book of card magic, where I could use a regular deck, and mostly impromptu. They offered up this book.

While not all the tricks are impromptu, the tricks offered up here are very well done. The book is highly entertaining to read, and the explanations are clear, with plenty of pictures to help explain things.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants some original ideas in card magic. Some basic knowledge of card sleights and handling will certainly help, but isn't required.
