Dai Vernon's Select SecretsSelect Secrets
by Dai Vernon

Thirteen superb miracles by the one and only Dai Vernon.

Any one of the effects is worth the price of the book and then some! Effects with cards, coins, dice, handkerchiefs, matches, cigarettes -- all with the brilliant hallmark that is Vernon's magic.

This was the book where Vernon revealed his method for his signature "Follow the Leader" effect. And his "Automatic Gambler" routine makes you look like an accomplished card expert ... yet it's self-working! But that's not all. There's never been a more perfect cigarette switch than the one explained here. And his famous "Snow Storm in China" routine is fully described here, too.

A choice collection of magic for close-up, platform, and stage. Illustrated by Vernon, too!
