Ultimate Street MagicBook - 2006
Over recent years, magicians have had to work harder to keep their public happy. The traditional role of the stage magician in sweeping tailcoats and top hats, has been usurped by a new generation, who are taking their tricks to the street. In Ultimate Street Magic, Gary Sumpter reveals the tricks of the trade with the use of easy-to-understand text and clear step-by-step photographs. Working through magic involving common objects, such as playing cards, coins, rubber bands and lighters, that will delight and amaze most audiences, he moves on to explain a range of even more impressive tricks to confuse the steel-willed and scare the strong of stomach, such as an easy-to-master street levitation. Wherever you go -- pubs, clubs, markets, restaurants -- you will be able to entertain the public with your new-found magical knowledge, and polish your act with a range of smart card flourishes.
