Versatile Card Magic Revisited BY Simon - Book
Price: $40.00
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!

In 1981, with little fanfare, a brand new publishing company released a book on card magic by an unknown author. Today, more than 20 years later, Frank Simon's Versatile Card Magic is considered a modern classic. Those lucky enough to own a copy of the first and only edition know that Frank's methods are diabolical and the effects created by them are baffling to magicians and laymen alike. Here at long last, is the much anticipated edition of Frank's elusive book. The text has been corrected, rewritten when necessary, and completely re-typeset. The 111 photos that appeared in the original book have been replaced with 283 new, crystal-clear images. The only thing that as stayed the same is Frank's great magic and those distinctive Jerry's Nugget cards that appear in the photos.

Pages: 228 - 9.5" x 10" - Hardcover with dust jacket - Black and white photos
