Give the gift of magic. The gift of performing a trick that leads to oohs and ahhs. Of learning a new sleight of hand and dazzling your dinner guests. Of adding fun to parties, delighting coworkers, completely bowling over your friends.
Combining a book, instructional DVD, five great props, and a sturdy, handsome case to hold it all, The Complete Magician is made for giving-an impressive, all-in-one kit with everything an aspiring magician needs to put on a show.
The 288-page book is Magic: The Complete Course by Joshua Jay. ("Finally, a book that brings the art of magic into the 21st century!"- Rick Merrill, 2006 World Champion of Magic) - which combines expertise, more than 600 full-color photographs, and step-by-step directions for more than 100 amazing tricks. Each trick is broken down into the Effect, the Secret, the Set-up, and, most important, the Performance, with lessons on what to say, how to direct the audience's attention, where to keep your hands, and more. In the 132-minute DVD Joshua Jay demonstrates 35 tricks, showing both how to do them and how to perform them convincingly.
And the props are classics: four metal 4-inch linking rings, one Svengali Deck, one Paranorma Deck, one Magic "Pen-etrating" Pen, and one false thumb tip.
