"With this book, whole new generations of magicians will not only discover who originated so much of what they take for granted, but also will have the opportunity to study some of the most influential and important and wonderful presentations and routines in all of close-up magic."
- Eugene Burger
This landmark work has finally been fully and dramatically captured in multi-faceted, multi-mediated form by Jon Racherbaumer, and L & L Publishing is proud to offer a vital masterwork written the way magic books should be written. Not only are all of Don Alan's signature tricks explained in meticulous detail, but his unique format, important sub-text, psychology and presentation - the life-blood of what set Don Alan apart from the rest, is fully explained. These are the aspects which made his entertaining routines the prevailing paradigm of 20th Century Close-up Magic. You will get an inside look at what made Don Alan the most talked about and most copied close-up entertainer of all time. And you will learn the whys and hows of his synergistic routine-making and the all-important underlying themes: the Circle of Fun, the uses of environmental and personal spaces, picking players, timing, control, momentum, interrogation strategy, and much more . . .
Imagine the best magic, the best magicians, and the best producers all in one place.

The Secrets of Thumb Tips
Learn a classic of card magic that your audience will remember forever.
If you could have one set of magic DVDs, this would be it! This benchmark collection features just about all of magic's most enduring and classic effects and routines. It's a fabulous compendium with many of the top masters in the world of magic teaching their handlings and routines for some of magic's classics. Linking rings, sponge balls, metal bending, cups and balls, thumb tips, Zombie, color-changing knives, and many, many more topics are all gathered in this one terrific DVD reference set. Each volume covers a specific subject and features new, old, and sometimes rare footage by some of the top video producers in magic.
The thumb tip is one of the most utilized and valuable gimmicks in magic but it also wins the title of perhaps its most badly used. However, the thumb tip, despite repeated exposures, can still create miracles when used properly and judiciously.
On this DVD, you'll see ways to use a thumb tip that you've never dreamed of. Michael Ammar presents a poignant story with just a few coins that your audience will always remember. Richard Osterlind tears open a signed packet of sugar substitute and miraculously restores it while Roger Klause conjures silver coins from thin air with just a borrowed dollar bill. If you think you know the traditional vanishing handkerchief, you're about to be badly fooled by Alexander de Cova and Paul Wilson. Jeff Sheridan offers his versions of two classic thumb tip pieces while Ted Lesley and Dan Harlan demonstrate effects suitable for a stand-up performance. Larger stage tricks like 20th Century Silks and Blendo are turned into powerful close-up effects by Fernando Keops and Steve Dacri and Al Schneider performs a quaint mystery with nothing more than a borrowed dime. Rounding out this set is Paul Diamond with a post-graduate course in thumb tip work with finesses that will vastly improve your own handling of this marvelous tool.
Don't be misled by those who dismiss the thumb tip as "old school." There are a dozen performers and 14 performances and explanations here that provide conclusive evidence that there's still a lot of magical life left in this wonderful utility gimmick.

Featuring two exclusive presentations:
Five audience members are choosen and asked to choose any numbered seat that they feel drawn towards. The magician hands out five envelopes to be shuffled by a participant and then are handed out. The envelopes are opened and remembered. The cards are passed down and then reshuffled before being handed back to the magician. An audience member is chosen to associate one of the cards with a seated participant and the seated participant is given the card. With each psyhic connection, the magician hands out the rest of the cards one by one to the seated participants. The cards are then revealed by the seated members as the cards that they remembered previously. Remarkable! But that's not all, the magician asks the participants to look into the numbered envelope on their seats that they felt drawn towards. The cards in the envelope matches the cards in the participants' hands. Incredible!

This is the NON MAGNETIC VERSION OF THE WIZARD DARK PK RING
For years magicians have been asking Wizard FX Productions to supply a normal ring that will match the Wizard PK Ring. We have listened to all your requests and are proud to announce the release of the Non Magnetic Wizard Dark. The Wizard PK ring has become a standard utility item in magic, similar to a thumb tip in that most magicians have one that they use on a regular basis. The launch of the non magnetic version of the Wizard Dark means that many other routines and ideas are now possible. The only limits are your imagination.

Ten stunning rope routines.
ALL THESE ROUTINES ARE PERFORMED WITH REGULAR ROPES
ROPE-EN-KNOT (U. F. Grant): A spectator ties knots on a rope. You drop the rope in a paper bag leaving the end protruding. The spectator pulls on the rope and the knots are gone!
ROPE THROUGH (Marconick): A piece of rope mysteriously penetrates your neck!
SILK ON ROPE (Hans G. Witt): You show a length of rope and tie a knot on it. Suddenly a silk appears in the knot!
LOOPED (Aldo Colombini): You tie several loops on a piece of rope. You then pull one of the loops removing it, while all the others disappear!
LINKING ROPES (Rink): What a great effect! Two lengths of rope are shown and in a blink of the eye they link together. You will love the great method!
THE DIZZY ROPE (Alvin Gentil): You show a piece of rope half white and half red. You tie a knot on the white side and the knot, after a couple of gags, moves to the red part!
KNOT-AWAY (Karrell Fox): A silk handkerchief is tied to a rope. Without untying the knot, the hank is removed from the rope! You'll fool yourself doing this!
SUPER ROPE TRICK (U. F. Grant): A piece of rope is tied into a loop and a spectator cuts the rope leaving the knot on the rope. The knot disappears and leaves the rope restored!
NO-KNOT RESTORED ROPE (Percy Abbott): A unique way to perform the cut and restored rope! You will use this!
LOOPED ROPE THROUGH NECK (Marconick): Well, what about another method of the classic rope thru neck? And a very deceptive one? Look no further! It's here!
The Basic Smart Ass Effect:
You place a jumbo card face down on a chair without revealing it's identity.
A participant is invited to sit down on the mystery card and is shown a deck of shuffled playing cards. You explain that they will use their subconscious to deduce the identity of the jumbo card they are sitting on. The spectator cuts the deck into two piles and places them in either hand. They are asked to toss one half away and keep the other. After they do this they cut the remaining cards into two piles, holding one in each hand and they once again toss one pile away and keep the other. Down to the last few cards, the participant chooses one card, having the opportunity to change their mind several times. They make a final selection. With their final choice in hand the spectator stands and picks up the jumbo card, to find it matches their selection EXACTLY!
Smart Ass Considerations:
Smart Ass has become something of a phenomenon. Since it was released five years ago Bill Abbott has received praise from many of magic's top pros along with new ideas, tips and fully scripted routines from performers who use their Smart Ass deck on a regular basis.
