All best, Brad Volume One contains a collection of powerful card magic utilizing unprepared cards, David’s startling Cups & Balls routine from his Magic Castle Act and a chapter devoted entirely to magic done with neither cards nor coins. Prepare to fool your audiences with the following: Multiple spectators shuffle an ordinary deck, which is then held under a spectator’s hand, yet the magician has correctly predicted the top card. The magician, standing behind the table with empty hands, causes a signed selection to penetrate the tabletop. A selection is placed between four Aces held in the hands, then jumps to the center of a pile of Kings already on the table. The magician pockets four-of-a-kind selected by a spectator, then spreads the Aces in a face-up fan. Visually, in an instant, the cards change places. A spectator cuts the deck multiple times, arriving at his own phone number. Two volunteers cut to and turn over the four aces—a new method for a classic effect. You may fool yourself! A cotton ball is plucked from a spectator’s clothing, then changes into a handkerchief. A card case is turned into a magical box that allows a spectator’s ring to penetrate onto a pencil. A pet mouse terrifies the audience on its way to locating a spectator’s selected playing card. A borrowed ring vanishes and appears threaded on a luggage tag. In addition, there are card effects contributed by William Goodwin, R. Paul Wilson, John Lovick and Gordon Bean, plus, as noted, a fully detailed Cups & Balls routine which possesses a unique wrinkle. Let the fooling begin. Hardbound with full color dustjacket, . . .

All best, Brad The second part of Constant Fooling, contains an assortment of unique card magic utilizing prepared or altered cards, mental mysteries, a chapter dedicated to exceptional card effects which utilize a technological breakthrough, bills and currency, gaffed decks and a standout card routine which tells a story. Continue fooling your audiences with the following: A spectator freely deals down to a “Lucky Card”. . . that happens to match the card in the magician’s wallet. The deck is tossed onto a small but lethal mousetrap which snaps shut—trapping the selection as cards scatter. A late psychic’s scrap of paper predicts the actions of a spectator. A freely-selected card rises from a deck, using a gimmick you can make in one minute. Spectators randomly deal the deck into piles, perfectly separating the four suits in the process. Fifty-one cards are eliminated in the fairest possible manner from an examined deck, leaving a single card that matches a prediction. Mr. Regal’s favorite platform item. A signed playing card changes places with a pocketed Joker—with clean hands and no palming. A signed card rises to the top of a deck that is tied with string. The deck can then be used for further miracles. A borrowed bill cleanly changes into a hundred dollar bill, via a new method that doesn’t utilize a thumb tip. A story of life “after hours” is told with a deck of cards. A showpiece guaranteed to garner applause. Hardbound with full color dustjacket, 239 pages. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- David Regal is a magician . . .
