The Blue Bug
by Sid Fleischman
and Bob Gunther
A Manual of Sorcery with Cigarette Papers! No matter whether you're a magician, a mentalist, or land somewhere in between, there's something for you in this brilliant book.
Intimate, indetectable, close-up magic giving the appearing of great skill but requiring a minimum of sleight of hand. Over a dozen illustrations and a score of effects and methods.
Illustrated by Bob Gunther, former Disney animator, the moves are cleanly and clearly depicted, as if the authors were teaching them to you over drinks at their favorite watering hole.
Whether you utilize the moves for billet switches, torn and restored thread effects, or as they are intended for stunningly clever cigarette paper magic, you'll get more than your money's worth here.
But don't take our word for it. Read on for raves from those in the know:
With a packet of cigarette papers in hand, you'll be ready to perform beautifully intimate magic for the dinner table, hospitality suite, or bar.
PDF format. Expanded and updated version of the 1947 Magic Limited first edition. Includes important edits and updates. Completely reset in crystal clear type. 30 pages + supplement. ($4 US)
