Close-up File is a collection of magic, which uses no playing cards. This large collection of magic contains 35 complete routines in 195 pages and is profusely illustrated with line drawings. Jerry Mentzer has written numerous books of magic including the well-known Close-up Cavalcade and Card Cavalcade series. Previous books contain some of the finest close-up magic of the day. Close-up File emphasizes complete effects as opposed to moves, and sleights. Where moves and sleights are described, they are used in the effects described.
The magic ranges from simple, nearly self working tricks, through the gamut of tricks requiring standard skills, to advanced magic, which requires skills that will be new to most readers. Most of the tricks described can be performed with props most magicians already have on hand. Much of the books content is previously unpublished. The close-up magician should find many tricks and ideas of immediate interest and use.
