Excellent choice, Bizzaro… I love that book, one of the very first I got, and have since bought backups when I've seen them... this one is getting raggedy.

J. G. Thompson’s Top Secrets in Magic, Volumes 1, 2, and 3. Some excellent effects and routines. It includes card magic coin magic and mentalism. Thompson was a contributor to Jinx, and he also wrote and co-authored several other books.

Handsome Jack, etc. is a book I constantly find myself rereading. It not only features some great tricks, but is also a textbook for character development and showcasing that character in performance.

I am currently reading, and being blown away by, Bill Simon's "Effective Card Magic." It's great.

Currently reading a couple of absolute crackers. The Paradigm Shift Vols 1 and 2 by Michael Close. The type of books one feels reticent to mention too often because they are so good. How mean spirited of me. I apologise. The Paradigm Shift Vols 1 and 2, The Paradigm Shift Vols 1 and 2, The Paradigm Shift Vols 1 and 2, The Paradigm Shift Vols 1 and 2.....available at Michael’s website here

Oh, almost forgot. "The Magic of Matt Schulien" basically changed my life.

"The Creative Card Magic of" Edward P. Meisel

My first hardback magic book I think -- always have it around, revisit it a lot... lots of great stuff in there.

Hi, guys!

Last post is a month ago, but i love talking and recommended books:


-Miguel Gómez "El placer de la Magia". Terrific book, check it out if you dont know him.

   
-Jerry Sadowitz's "Cards on the table" (all Sadowitz/P. Duffie stuff is full of good ideas).


-Jerry Andrus: "Deals you in". Fantastic moves, weird ideas, original routines.... Out of his time.


-Father Cyprian: "The elegant card magic of Father Cyprian" and the rest of books & booklets.

The Alton Sharpe books and John Mendoza books are awesome. Lots of Marlo material in the former and lots of commercial magic in the latter. Among other things.

Another good call RayJ! I love the Alton Sharpe books. There's gold in there. And, as you reiterated, Books of John have nuggets too.

Horace Bennett (1925-1990) published solid material that generally combined relatively simple technique with superb routining.

Most of his books are available from Magic Methods.

Kike good suggestion on the Cyprian book.  Always worth going through it.  The last time I spoke to Cyp, he mentioned he was working on a book of all his new card stuff since the Garcia book, but was gone not too long after.
