Magic in the Modern Manner (Revised Edition) by Orville MeyerMagic in the Modern Manner
by Orville Meyer
(Revised Edition)

A revealing book of 36 professionally developed magic effects and routines for mid-level performers, yet professionals and even amateurs will find value here.

No matter if you perform magic or mentalism, there's gold within the pages of this excellent book.

6 card effects, 10 mental miracles, 10 more diverse tricks, 2 tricks for kid shows, the bullet catch (6 methods), linking rings, 2 cups and balls routines, a master system for keeping track of your effects, and closes with one more stunning mental mystery.

Did you know that Meyer invented the bullet catch that was famously used Annemann? And he was the co-creator of Think! Ink! that set the magic world on its ear some years back. He tips both effects in this book.

Meyer also gives you his own linking ring routine, developed after memorizing several others on the market, incorporating a series of moves that make this time-proven effect come to life in a new way. Many professionals called it the best they've ever seen.
