    With no hands, threads or magnets, a deck mysteriously cuts itself to the exact location of a spectator’s card.

The secret is a versatile new gimmick you won't want to be without. It's undetectable and allows for everything to be handed out with literally nothing to find.

    A collection of two effects beautifully condensed into one routine. Think Stop is a powerful cold-reading effect that requires very little skill.

  8. Bullet to the Brain

    Bullet to the Brain by Paul Wilson

    A unique twist on an old Harvey Rosenthal idea where two jokers appear around a thought of card. In this method Paul Wilson not only predicts the thought of card but causes it to vanish.

  9. Dead Lock

    Dead Lock by Michael Stern

  10. Trigger by Valdemar Gestur

    Trigger by Valdemar Gestur

    $11.95

    Trigger is a stunning and surprising effect that looks like trick photography. The solution is impossible to reconstruct, yet seems fair and is easily achieved.

    After a card is shuffled into the center, the deck is wrapped tightly with a rubber band, sealing the card within. At your command, the band passes through the entire deck with the exception of a single card, which shoots out from the center for a dynamic and visual effect.

  11. Erdnase Unmasked

    Erdnase Unmasked by Richard Hatch

    $34.95

    For over a hundred years, the identity of the author of Artifice, Ruse and Subterfuge at the Card Table, known colloquially as The Expert at the Card Table, has perplexed practitioners of magic and historians alike. For many, it is the last great, unresolved mystery of twentieth century magic. That is, until now.

    Magicana is pleased to publish the findings of Richard Hatch, the world's pre-eminent authority on the subject, along with sleight-of-hand artist David Ben's profile of the author drawn from the content of the book. Together, they make a compelling case that one man - E. S. Andrews - was the author of this seminal text.

  12. Magical Mathematics

    Magical Mathematics by Persi Diaconis

    $29.95
    Magical Mathematics reveals the secrets of amazing, fun-to-perform card tricks--and the profound mathematical ideas behind them--that will astound even the most accomplished magician. Persi Diaconis and Ron Graham provide easy, step-by-step instructions for each trick, explaining how to set up the effect and offering tips on what to say and do while performing it. Each card trick introduces a new mathematical idea, and varying the tricks in turn takes readers to the very threshold of today's mathematical knowledge. For example, the Gilbreath Principle--a fantastic effect where the cards remain in control despite being shuffled--is found to share an intimate connection with the Mandelbrot set. Other card tricks link to the mathematical secrets of combinatorics, graph theory, number theory, topology, the Riemann hypothesis, and even Fermat's last theorem.
