On the Shoulders of Giants is a book/Video CD package by Roger Crosthwaite dealing with card technique. In his introduction Jack Skertchly describes Roger as a world authority on card magic in the Marlo tradition who combines diabolical subtlety with immense technical skill. He also has the ability to demonstrate and explain routines and moves clearly, pointing out the finer points of handling and presentation which are the mark of a true magical artist.
The routines are conceived as a tribute to Harry Houdini and are centred on three aspects of his performing persona: the mindreader, the gambler, and the magician. The three Video CDs 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 56-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.
Spiral Bound with 3 Video CD's included in the set.
