Wass, Verrall: Astound Your Audience Volume One Cards

Hardcover, 95 pages

Comments ( "This is the first volume in a five volume series from which only two have been published. Verrall Wass takes us through his card tricks from manipulation to mechanical stage/platform effects. The ebook is split into two sections, one describing effects with regular sized cards, the other with giant cards – a total of 22 Amazing Effects in total. The last chapter espouses some of his personal ideas as to magical presentation and psychic phenomenon. Robert Harbin even donated an effect to this collection - "The Card in a Lemon." Many of the ideas in this ebook have been hibernating since 1936 and need to be performed for the public."
