Art of Close-up Magic (Two volume reprint set ) #1 = #2
Probably the greatest collection of close-up tricks ever assembled. And no card tricks are included in this first volume. It is so important not only because of its size (see the humongous table of contents below) and quality, but because the author has gone beyond the mere explanations of tricks and routines. The opening chapter, ‘The Presentation of Close-Up Magic’, embraces the whole approach to close-up performance. Includes hundreds of illustrations by Dennis Patten.
