Included in The Complete Walton Vol. 3 are the original descriptions for Roy Walton’s famous effects ‘Cardwarp’ and ‘Cascade.’
The format of the book is designed to complement the 2012 re-releases of Volumes 1 and 2, and is printed on responsibly sourced paper by artisan printers in London.
Illustrated by Thomas Cameron.
Hard backed, 257 pages.
Here are some quotes about this third volume:
“All I know about magic stems from Roy Walton. His effects are ingenious in construction and method. No one can fail to learn from this great magician.”
– GORDON BRUCE
“The Complete Walton Vol. 3 is a collection of brilliance. I look forward to Volume 4.”
– PETER DUFFIE
“Roy’s tricks are an extension of Erdnase. Whereas Vernon applied the philosophy of Erdnase to magical technique, Walton completes the revolution by applying Erdnase to the tricks themselves.
“Roy’s methods are woven into each trick so as not to be suspected, let alone detected, and without ever sacrificing directness of effect. Roy Walton is without doubt the most complete card magician of the 20th century, and centuries to leave everyone standing in the 21st.”
– JERRY SADOWITZ
“I’m not a card magician as such but know enough about card routines to appreciate the quality of Roy Walton’s creativity and the very core of his thinking. For half a century, I have seen the unique development of one of the finest minds in magic.”
– JOHN DERRIS
“Without fail pound for pound, Roy Walton delivers more excellent ideas and original plots in his books than most others by comparison. I already have favorites from this latest volume that I consider to be absolute gems and have been delighted in the discovery of them. If you enjoy well-crafted routines, an adherence to naturalness and direct effect, you will enjoy unearthing favorites from the fertile and imaginative mind of Mr. Walton.”
– CHRIS WOOD
“No matter what your skill level is with a pack of cards, you will find a wealth of excellent material in this long-awaited book of Roy Walton’s latest work. His name is a guarantee of quality card magic.”
– ANDY GALLOWAY (protégée of John Ramsay)
“There are stars, there are super stars and there are legends. Roy Walton falls into the latter category. The Complete Walton Vol. 3 is a wonderful collection of material from a true genius.”
