Attention All Serious Card Magicians: A card magic book has been created that you should own! Details are as follows: This book contains 86 card tricks. Not a typo. That’s right, 86! 73 of the tricks were created by a relatively unknown magician by the name of Al Thatcher (71 in the main book and 2 bonus tricks in the addendum). 13 tricks are from the fertile minds of more recognizable names in magic. Al was a good friend and cohort of Nick Trost. They both resided in Columbus, Ohio and spent many hours together creating. If you have ever read any of Nick’s books you probably have seen Al’s name mentioned several times. His hand-written files have been assembled and incorporated into a book. Along with that 13 other magicians have each contributed a trick to be incorporated into this book. A big thank you goes to the magicians who contributed tricks to the addendum of this book. Their generosity should not be overlooked. It is with their kind help that the card magic of Al Thatcher might become better known. These magicians are listed below. Tom Craven, Stephen Bargatze, Gary Plants, Mike Powers, Dan Block, Steve Beam, Del Copley, Wynn Mertz, Nick Trost (Courtesy of H & R Publishing), Robert Bengel, Evert Chapman, Gordon Boyd, and Richard Bartram Jr. This book of card magic and will introduce you to a talented card man who has so far traveled in the shadows of other great creators of card magic. It will also provide you with 13 card tricks from other well-known card magicians. This is the deal of the year! While not for the beginning card magician, the effects contained in this book are certainly within the reach of the intermediate card magician. The most difficult sleight would probably be an overhand stock shuffle or the “Elmsley Count”--pretty basic indeed. If you like effects that use the “Breather Crimp,” you will be pleased with what you find in these pages. Al liked creating effects that used the “Breather” and there are many such effects in this book. In short, it is a book that will satisfy the most discerning magician and provide him/her with several effects that are worth many times the price of the book.Sleights and shuffles mentioned and used in this book include the Australian deal, Biddle Count, bottom slip shuffle, breather crimp, Charlier shuffle, Cull place shuffle, double buckle, double undercut, Elmsley Count, false cut, false shuffle, gambler’s cop, half pass, halo cut, Hamman Count, Hindu shuffle, jog shuffle, overhand shuffle, pinky break, reverse Faro shuffle, riffle force, running overhand shuffle, spectator peek, straddle Faro shuffle, swing cut, swivel cut, thumb break, and top change.
