|Original Ideas in Magic!
by Lloyd W. Chambers
A master craftsman reveals some of his most prized magical effects!
Lloyd W. Chambers is well-known in magic and collector circles for having built some very fine examples of the conjuror's craft for the likes of Thayer, Abbott, and his own Chambers Magic Co.
Within the pages of this ebook are 26 magic effects, many of them offered for sale individually in dealer catalogues for prices far exceeding the price of the entire book!
Here's a look at the contents:
Three of the described effects, "Cardart" (a dart tossed at a moving target with 12 cards clipped to it reveals the selected card); "How Time Flies" (a bowl of flames changes to a bowl of flowers to a clock face); and "Transribbo" (a cut and restored ribbon using a marked and autographed ribbon) sold for more than $170 EACH in equivalent US dollars.
We are especially happy that Chambers elected to include his beautifully crafted Spirit Ball (Obedient Ball) effect that uses an examinable ball!
PDF format. Revised and expanded reprint of the 1941 Chambers Magic Co. first edition. Includes scores of important edits, clarifications and updates, completely reset in crystal clear type, with added biography. 50 pages. ($5 US)
