Card magic with video performances on DVD.
On the Shoulders of Giants is a projected series of Book/DVD sets looking at some of the giants of magic and the influence they have had on our magical thinking and performance today. The first of these focuses on Harry Houdini, looking at three aspects of his performing persona:
The Mindreader; The Gambler; and The Magician.
The DVD contain around three hours of material -- demonstrations of effects with explanations and invaluable discussions on technique. The section on the Bottom Deal alone includes material never before revealed on video.
The accompanying 54-page book builds on these themes and offers further related effects. There is an 'Encore' section with contributions from Allan Ackerman, Peter Duffie, Bob Farmer, Dan Harlan and Ed Marlo, as well as some additional material from Roger.
To sum up, On the Shoulders of Giants is a unique package with includes a wealth of fine material for anyone who is serious about their card magic.
