Make coins vanish and reappear, make handkerchiefs change color, and make friends, family, and other audiences gasp with delight at your dazzling sleight-of-hand tricks. You can learn the secrets behind dozens of classic maneuvers from Alfred C. Gilbert, a manufacturer of magic kits. The renowned toymaker shared his conjuring secrets in Gilbert Coin Tricks
and Gilbert Handkerchief Magic.
Published a century ago, these two charming guides are now available in this new single-volume edition.
Geared toward young readers, Gilbert's Table Magic
abounds in simple, clearly illustrated instructions that provide insights into ageless entertainments. The tricks are divided into two classes: sleight-of-hand tricks that call for patience, practice, and determination; and a series of tricks that require practically no skill and that anyone can quickly learn. A treasury of tricks for every style of aspiring magician, this book is ideal for both serious magic enthusiasts and more casual readers.
