Hi Kuzelnik,

There are a lot of modern books that only have routines in them. May I ask what are you searching for exactly?

Impromptu routines. If not then with a mnemonica stack. And preferably at the table magic or street magic style. Hopefully this narrows it down a bit more

Kuzelnik,

I believe you have Royal Road To Card Magic. Have you already experienced the tricks at the end of the book? The authors are routining the tricks in the book. It is an interesting point of view on how to routine tricks.

Where did you learn the Mnemonica stack from? If not from the Tamariz book, I would suggest you get it because you'll obviously find a lot of work with his stack in it.

This is just a little hint on what you're asking for. Can you give us a list of the books you already have in your collection? We might go from here to help you find some interesting books to add to your library.

Most importantly, I think that reading a book is not enough to jump to another one (even if we're probably all guilty about this) but study it to get the best of it.

Just let us know,

L.

I have these books: Royal road to card magic, Expert card technique, Expert at the card table (just recently bought it), Drawing room deceptions, Steranko on cards, Repertoire, PK Touch by Banachek, Secret of the butterflies - Butterfly cards by Ondrej Psenicka.

Right now i’m going through RRTCM (as a lot of recommendations said) and i’m also learning a few techniques from Expert at the card table. And i’m asking for some routines specifically because I’ll be meeting my older brother in about a month or two for the first time since about january. And that’s when I started magic. So obviously I wanted to impress him as for how much I improved. And obviously I cannot have like 6 decks all with different set ups and then just pull them out every other trick. So that’s the explanation and I did try to find the Mnemonica book by Tamariz but i couldn’t seem to find it, i’ll probably look for it today but anyways THANK YOU!

Check out Michael Breggar's books. They're filled with fully-scripted routines using cards, coins, and other assorted props. Michael posts here.

Michael's stuff is top-notch.  John Bannon's work is worth studying as well.

Kuzelnik,

I believe you already have everything you need to impress your older brother.

I'm sorry if I sound redundant but RRTCM has everything you need. At the end of the book, there are some examples of routines i.e "A Table Routine" :

- A Poker Player's Picnic
- A Poker Puzzle
- The Good Luck Card

This is one of the many examples in the book for routining tricks. These three tricks are not that difficult to learn and they make some room for you to add your own patter and personality.

At the end of this routine, you might want to stop and put the deck in your pocket, waiting for your brother to ask for a last trick. You could then perform a deck switch with another deck in mnemonica order and proceed to blow his socks off :-)
Hope this helps,

EDIT : This topic might be of interest for you. Paul Wilson is showcasing how you can easily fry one's mind with really easy tricks. I hope it will give you faith in RRTCM.

       Definitely stay away from THE MAGIC BOOK, SPECIAL EFFECTS, ONLY MY APOCALYPSE, LORAYNE: THE CLASSIC COLLECTION volumes 2, 3, 4, 5), JAW DROPPERS 2, AND FINALLY! and many more.

     Yes, please forgive, I'm being sarcastic. Just don't understand how/why newbies don't know about the GOOD STUFF.
         Of course, if you want to learn about the good stuff go to the new - quite interesting...many photos, videos, etc. - site:

If not already mentioned, Encyclopedia of Card Tricks by Jean Hugard and The Complete Illustrated Book of Card Magic by Walter B. Gibson. Also Vernon's books that were discussed in a previous post.

It's because they're newbies they don't know about any stuff, let alone the good stuff.

A visit to your website is a start. and if they stick around here for a while, that's another step.

I agree with Lucas. There are some great pieces in the books you already have. I know you are new to the craft, and are eager to explore - I get it, we've all been there. But learning a few tricks from Royal Road, and stringing them into a small act, will serve you well.
Don't just read the books, actually study them.
