England’s Ben Hart has burst onto the scene with an impressive finals-showing on Britain’s Got Talent, sold-out theater tours across the UK, and a sold-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Now he has released his debut collection of original magic, The Darkest Corners. The book is filled with creativity and wisdom, earned from hundreds of performances.
You’ll learn Hart’s signature piece, in which a signed silk appears in a peach. You’ll learn a trick with a real Venus Flytrap, and the best lottery prediction we’ve ever encountered. You’ll learn several effects you can perform… over the radio. And you’ll learn how to make an egg appear from a scrap of paper.
More than the tricks, there is real knowledge in this book tucked away in essays and personal statements. Ben gives advice on how to structure and develop a stage show, and how to use camera projection not only to present magic in a large theater, but to take advantage of the blind spots you choose not to film.
