25 Methods for Switching Decks by Floyd D. Brown (Revised Edition) 25 Methods for Switching Decks
by Floyd D. Brown

Every magician, at one time or another, needs a sure-fire method of switching decks. With this clever publication, you get 25 of them!

Newly revised and updated, this must-have reference not only includes the mechanics of the switches themselves, but also offers a behind-the-scenes peek of how performers work their magic with cards.

Included is the full handling of Herbert Brooks' sensational card-from-pocket mystery, just as he performed it for years on the vaudeville stage.

Some of the methods involve no apparatus, others rely on props owned by most magicians.

Don't take our word for it. Here's what magicians from around the world have to say about 25 Methods for Switching Decks:

"Mr. Brown has a fine collection of methods for performing this magically useful, but infrequently described, operation. Even if you never do a card trick, you should read this worthy little volume for instructions on how to exchange articles similar in appearance."
  —John Mulholland in The Sphinx

"The material here presented is unusually good and we believe that '25 Methods for Switching Decks' will prove very helpful to many magicians."
  —Paul Fleming in the Fleming Book Reviews

"To the best of my knowledge, this is the only book devoted solely to the subject of deck switching. This little-known booklet has some first rate switches."
  —Paul Marcus in Magicana (NZ)

"Card wizards are few indeed who won't at times use a stacked or prepared pack to work something really super. And the best way to allay suspicion is to have a deck freely handled by the crowd and then secretly exchange it. Those desiring good ways of doing so can find them in this clearly-written treatise."
  —Tom Bowyer in the Linking Ring

Revised version includes two new chapters, a new section, additional graphics, and scores of edits and updates.
