Working The Tables - David Drake

Commercial close-up from a working pro
Softcover, 8.5" x 11" (21.5 x 28 cm), 38 pages
Published by David Drake

David Drake earned his living performing close-up magic for over 25 years. In this book, he has released 20 of his most commercial and entertaining routines — off-beat, original and innovative tricks.

The tricks are all within the abilities of the average close-up magician, and the clear instructions — David was a professional writer — and illustrations make them easy to learn. Here you will find gems such as:

The Pill Trick: Eight pills instantly vanish from the performer’s hands
The Steel Balls: 3 small ball bearings to 2 medium ones to one big one
Pengali: a blue Bic pen becomes red–cap, plug and ink
Frog Cut: secretly reverse cards while cutting the deck
Dreamwave Deck: “Brainwave” plus card to wallet
Cross-Pollination: clever, off-beat, multiple divination
The Singing Card Trick and I Can’t Spell: two highly entertaining tricks that prove you can neither sing nor spell, but can find selected cards anyway!
Spellbound Surprise: a totally off-beat ending to a classic
Penny Ring: a big coin shrinks to pass through a ring and instantly snaps back to its original size
Three-Sided Coin: exactly that; a coin is shown to have 3 sides
Key/Ball Balance: a skeleton key refuses to obey the laws of gravity
Loupe Da Loop: lovely linking finger ring routine
Four Ring Assembly: “Matrix” with small rings and a smash ending
and a few more, with cards, coins, keys, balls, nuts and bolts, string, etc. - David Drake
