Advanced Magic by Joe Ovette Advanced Magic
by Joe Ovette

Here's a book containing several very fine magical, mental and spirit effects, as you've come to expect from this stage magician and mentalist.

Ovette's text is divided into six chapters, each devoted to a different segment of magic and its working. The ingenious card tricks, novel illusions, and sage advice make this updated edition a great investment for the club, platform or stage conjuror.

The "Dove of Peace" effect alone would sell for twenty dollars, if purchased from a dealer. Likewise, the author reveals his "Matter of Force Deck," which was formerly sold as a dealer item.

The performer who has a home workshop will certainly want to build and use one of the five described side tables for his act. Also included are several amusing anecdotes, which are Ovette's way of providing pearls of wisdom without boring the reader.

  • About the Author

"A book of [more than] 25 tricks and illusions, each being an original effect of Ovette. Written in the colloquial style; as you read the description of the tricks, etc., it seems as if Ovette were talking to you and explaining in person. Well worth the price."

—Dr. A. M. Wilson's review in The Sphinx

Revised and updated version of the 1919 first edition including corrected illustrations, additional content and hundreds of editorial updates to make Ovette's detailed descriptions even more crystal clear. PDF. 100 pages plus publisher suggestions. $4 US.
