Supreme Magic 'Know How' Book 1991
28-page staple-bound book, filled with photos and drawings.
Teaches methods from Thurston and De Kolta to latest mechanical and digital methods.

Comments ( Surprisingly little has been published in an encyclopedic form about the classic rising cards in English. You can find some in Greater Magic but the rest is spread out in many books and journals. Although this publication can hardly be called an encyclopedia, it is the only publication in English I know which is entirely dedicated to the rising card effect. It is a wonderful collection of a number of methods, described clearly with photos and illustrations. This was part of the Supreme 'Know How' series.
