The book SEANCE is the re-printed complete collection of all twelve SEANCE quarterly magazines devoted to spirit magic. Here is an excerpt from the books introduction written by Eugene Burger Seance first appeared in 1988. As each new issue arrived I was surprised at the amount of good material that was being contributed. Single effects entire routines plot ideas old methodologies revisited (I loved the piece on the Nelson Enterprises Ghost Gun) thoughts on theory and practice and much more. The pages of Seance magazine are a gold mine filled with thought-provoking ideas for anyone interested in a magical engagement with ghosts and spirits. .. since 1991 barely a month has gone by without some magician asking about Seance magazine – and where copies might be found. They are extremely hard to find and a complete file now sells for 200 and up It was a great source of pleasure to me therefore when I learned that Richard Kaufman had acquired the rights to Seance magazine for republication. It is a wonderful journal filled with some magical treasures and I am happy that it will again see the light of day. SEANCE the book has been re-printed and is now exclusively distributed by Murphys Magic Supplies. … Read more at our Magic Shop – World-of-magic.co.uk

Bicycle Playing Cards (Gold Standard) – BLUE BACK by Richard Turner

Bicycle Playing Cards (Gold Standard) – BLUE BACK by Richard Turner Return to the Gold Standard Richard Turners brand new Gold Seal Bicycle Cards are The Gold Standard in Bicycle Playing Cards and are now available to the professional magician gambler card mechanic and every playing card aficionado in search of a great deck of cards. You asked for it-youve got it Magicians and cardmen from around the world have asked Richard many times to employ the same card-making standards he developed for his Gamblers and Bee Cards to create a top of the line deck of the most popular playing cards ever produced the trademarked 808 Rider Back Bicycles. The magic community also asked that Richard include two traditional matching Jokers in his deck as well as a blank card with the Rider Bike back to use in reverse fans. Performers of gambling-related acts will also find the blank card useful as a cut-card when performing Greek-deals and other moves requiring a nondescript bottom card. Quality Each deck of Gold Seal Bicycle Cards is constructed using Bee stock world renowned for its flexibility yet long-lasting durability. They are stamped to a caliper/thickness that facilitates classic moves like bottom and center dealing and are embossed to a depth that does not break down the structural integrity of the card yet still allows each card to breathe properly thereby reducing the gum-up and hangers often caused by finger moisture. But most importantly since these cards were manufactured to Richard Turners demanding personal specifications they are Traditionally Cut The Process Unlike most of the cards manufactured today the cutting blade used in traditionally cut cards starts at the face of each card and punches through to its back. As a result a sharp edge is created on the backside of each card and a rounded edge which facilitates a flawless weave during each shuffle is formed on the cards face. Traditionally cut cards ensure that card men and magicians can easily interlace the cards to produce crisp clean shuffles especially with some of the more intricate shuffling techniques like the one-handed shuffle and the faro shuffle both in-hand and on the table. For over 100 years traditional card cutting was the norm but the process was changed about fifteen years ago. Casinos demand traditionally cut cards and so does Richard Turner.
