Five routines from The Book of Secrets.
This DVD contains John's practical handling of the cigars from the purse, two little known linking ring moves, his take on the classic miser's dream, a humorous ball routine using grapes, and variations on one of the best and most visual card tricks ever: Leipzig's Opener.
Fear not, for John Carney is acknowledged as one of the finest sleight of hand artists and teachers in the world. On this instructional DVD he gives you practical tips and effective techniques for stealing, concealing and controlling playing cards. This information is indispensable to students of pure and amazing card magic.
"...John exemplifies the sensibilities of the past masters, and for that reason, I would certainly recommend these DVDs to you, regardless if you own the book."
-- Mike Close, MAGIC Magazine
"…John Carney is an excellent performer, unmannered and deliberate. He does not take himself so seriously that he can't step into characters like Mr. Mysto and Dr. X, two bizarrely funny and utterly original creations. He has also participated as an actor in Jim Steinmeyer's recreations of John Nevil Maskelyne's magic playlets for the Conference on Magic History in Los Angeles.
But when Carney is playing it straight in sleight-of-hand performance, well, that is something special. You will learn some of his deep thinking about magic on these videos and, especially on the Ramsay volume, some of the best lessons in magic ever to be recorded."
