Book #09 in the 52 Weeks Project

There are 21 extremely original effects in this book.

Sid Fleishman was an award-winner writer and screen-writer, who wrote many popular children's books, and an expert magician, author of the highly regarded "The Charlatan's Book".

Bon Gunther was also an illustrator and animator, working in many famous Disney pictures. The illustrations in this book are made by him.

Including in the book is a lost Item from The Jinx - "The Bite" - a very comical card revelation that was originally intended to be published in the magazine - Annemann passed away before he could publish it.

There are also two "underground" secrets included - a real gambler's method to read the contents of an envelope (a secret that can be used in a mentalism effect), and a method to visibly vanish a lighted match with no movements, from a Native performer from Mexico.

We included short biographies of the authors and colorized the cover. The original book had three pages displaced, corrected in this electronic version.


The Card in the Ice Cube - made famous by Michael Ammar; this is the original version. Perfect for "Social Magic".

The Nest of Sacks - an inexpensive version of the "Nest of Boxes"
