T-Formation by J. G. Thompson, Jr. T-Formation
by J. G. Thompson, Jr.

J. G. Thompson, Jr's fabulous master-key to card control!

From the Introduction by B. W. McCarron, "T-Formation (TF) is a monograph of card sleights that are not at all difficult for the average performer; yet they allow a nice range of performance possibilities. Forces, controls, peeks and even the versatile double lift are all given the 'Thompson treatment.' "

TF teaches the average magician or mentalist an assortment of maneuvers with cards that are easy to execute but full of deceptiveness.

In the author's words, T-Formation "enables the performer, with a minimum of effort, to perform many sleights that are basic in card magic."

Not just for magicians, in the hands of a mentalist (who may not be up to speed on many card sleights), T-Formation allows the psychic entertainer to devastate his or her audience with an ESP deck or a borrowed pack of cards, by opening up thousands of card effects that were previously beyond his/her ability.

20 photo illustrations and Thompson's step-by-step instructions make everything clear.

"If you were once frightened by a book of sleights that seemed all thumbs and fingers, you'll find T-Formation extremely easy to follow. The results may even amaze you. Well illustrated with typical [great] Thompson photography."
      (--Sid Lorraine, New Tops magazine)
