The Berland Book of Routines
by Sam Berland
Take your magic to the next level by incorporating one or more of Berland's beautifully choreographed routines into your act.
This is magic that makes audiences, booking agents, and club owners sit up and take notice.
Not just one or two, but eight separate routines, using items already owned by most magicians. The performances are well-thought out, clearly described, and with 147 illustrations, easy for most any performer to understand and put to use.
Just look at what's included:
While all the routines are superb, we especially like the "Astrological Forecast" card routine, and the "Novelty Corn Cob Pipe Routine". Both of these acts rely on regular, off-the-shelf items and the gimmics can be made up by even the most inexpert home craftsman. (We'll go so far as to say, if you can't understand how to bend a pipe cleaner or open and close a safety pin, then you have no business being in the magic profession.)
Here's what a noted magic expert has to say about the book:
PDF format. 54 pages + supplement. Revised and updated reprint of the 1950 Berland Magic Creations edition. Includes important edits, clarifications and updates. ($3 US)
