Among Darwin Ortiz’ many fans, the only question is which of his card books is the best: Darwin Ortiz at the Card Table, Cardshark, or Scams & Fantasies with Cards. Now there is a new candidate: the aptly-named Lessons in Card Mastery.This time the accent is on uncanny displays of card control. You’ll display physical control by cutting to a selected card with just one finger, trapping two selections in a shuffled deck, displaying mastery at Texas hold’em, instantaneously producing an entire suit, making the deck sort itself into reds and blacks, and causing all fifty-two cards to rearrange into perfect suit and number sequence. You’ll display mental control by diving cards under impossible conditions and memorizing a deck in a matter of seconds.
Singapore’s Harapan Ong has caused an online sensation with his technical abilities. Videos began to circulate some years ago from a pair of hands doing extraordinary things. His style is natural, unassuming, and soft. But Aces appear, selections transpose, and magical things just seem to happen in Harapan’s hands.

The first book in the infamous Mythology Trilogy, Mitox is a collection of 22 punchy modern mentalism effects for stage, cabaret and close-up, from the mind of UK mentalist Phill Smith. Each effect is designed to be simple and accessible for performers of all different levels but powerful enough for full-bore pro-grade performance in front of real, paying audiences.
Along with these high-impact miracles the book also contains numerous essays on the performance of mentalism as well as unique premises to create a new approach to performing, as well as great ideas on how to develop your own effects and ideas from scratch.

Tras mucho tiempo dedicado a corregir, matizar (Tamariz), analizar, re-explicar, añadir, cortar, aclarar, variar y tratar de mejorar texto y fotos, he aquí al fin, esta Nueva edición de La Vía Mágica.
La primera edición (a pesar de sus defectos) tuvo una acogida maravillosa.
Se agotó la edición rápidamente ¡hace ya 20 años!, tuvo críticas excelentes en varios países (a veces, a mi gusto, casi ditirámbicas) y muchos magos me han escrito o comunicado verbalmente que su lectura significó para ellos un cambio de percepción en cómo sentir la Magia, o un estímulo para mejorarla.
From the mind of one of Mentalism’s rising stars comes an important book of practical, simple and direct mentalism.
Why should you be interested in this book? Because it features powerful, entertaining close-up mentalism that has been sharpened to a razor’s edge by constant use in the real world. Looch only performs direct, uncluttered effects that are guaranteed to astound an audience. Overcoming one of the problems with a lot of mentalism material, Looch has devised clever ways of retaining the element of surprise in his work, which elevates the material, even standard plots, to new levels of astonishment.
“Blomberg Laboratories is not as good as I had hoped it would be … it’s even better.”
– Michael Weber
Sweden’s Tomas Blomberg is not like other magicians. He combines his background in mathematics, physics, and puzzles to create a style of magic that is uniquely his own. Many expert magicians have heralded Blomberg as a reclusive genius, and for the first time ever, his highly guarded secrets will be revealed in a beautiful, oversized, hardback book.
In Blomberg’s world, the method is just as interesting as the effect. For example, you will learn a completely new approach to the Card at Any Number style routine where the deck secretly-and automatically-cuts itself at the named number. In a “Hold Your Gilbreath,” you use mathematics to decipher whether there is a sharp pin hidden under a row of randomly ordered cups. In “Time After Time” the spectators are able to find their own selections, even after they mix the cards themselves. Intrigued? You should be. The methods are completely fresh, and unlike anything you have ever used in your magic before.
Marvoyan’s Bolivian Brain Bafflers is a little-known book with exceptional material inside. This book includes his most famous effect, MY BOLD PREDICTION. This is a headline prediction that many professional performers have used and have kept secret – you will now learn this incredible secret! Effects include: Minds in control, Science Fiction Prediction, Crazy Liquid Glass, Triple Alternative, and much more. Very limited stock. Download Link . . .
In the early 1990s Roy Johnson introduced Scott Creasey to the “Shaxon Flap” envelope invented by Alan Shaxon and his love affair with the use of envelopes in mentalism began.
Since then Scott Creasey has produced two books, Envelopology Parts 1 & 2, along with a couple of DVDs The Single White Dwarf and The Empty Multiple Out Envelope where the envelopes are the stars.
The Envelopologist is an envelope switch technique Scott Creasey now uses in place of the “Shaxon Flap” envelope and uses small manila wage envelopes rather than standard side opening letter envelopes.
It is a very versatile system with a number of variations and applications.
This fifty-minute instant video download includes how to prepare the envelopes, the basic handling, a number of variations, the addition of the invisible window and three platform routines taken directly from Scott Creasey’s working repertoire.
