In magic, we have a wide range of tricks. Some of them can be performed on video only (they were designed solely for that purpose). They look great and are fantastic toys for grown-up kids to play around. And they are excellent for their intended use: TV and video. But usually, it is difficult to impossible to perform them in the real world in normal working conditions.
In NOTAS I have collected some of my best ideas and routines. I performed this material for many years. You are offered practical techniques and methods, which will enrich your repertoire of performable magic.
In my years as a professional magician, I have learned that it is the effect that counts. I also learned that many times, you could substitute a problematic sleight-of-hand move with a subtlety, which makes the performance much more comfortable and less stressful. You can concentrate on the audience, the circumstances you are performing in and the presentation. Despite I am capable of doing some “hardcore” moves, I favour the easy way.
I designed the book to look almost like a photorealistic replica of my notebooks, which I kept throughout the past 35 years. I intended to keep the reading time short, avoid lead deserts and enrich the content through the use of photographs. You will need only basic English to understand the material.
I cover almost all genres of magic: close-up (standing and formal), stand-up and stage, mentalism, gimmicks, hacks and moves. Often, you will find the “hacks” of interest. A lot of them can be applied to different tricks and routines you have already in your repertoire.
The book has 396 full-colour pages in Din A4 format. Hardcover and stitching so it lays flat for studying.
