A collection of the freshest step-by-step magic tricks to impress your mates and family. Learn how to turn everyday objects into sources of bewilderment and wonder!

Book Synopsis

Learn over 50 mind-blowing magic tricks and delight your friends and family, all without buying fancy props or equipment.

Step-by-step photos and encouraging performance tips from top magician Jake Banfield will turn you into a professional in no time! Magic Tricks with Coins, Cards, and Everyday Objects will teach you how to make magic with anything you can get your hands on.

With magic tricks of varying levels of difficulty divided by category--card tricks, coin tricks, everyday objects, and mind reading--this book offers an insider's view of the popular world of "street magic," where magicians specialize in up-close, informal tricks to bamboozle their audiences.

Along with card trick basics, the introduction sets out the rules for performing magic and offers suggestions on how to combine tricks for maximum impact, tips on rehearsing and practice, and advice on how to develop your own performance style to truly wow your audience.

Then, explore top magic secrets to learn how to:

  • Make a card chosen by a volunteer disappear, and then reappear inside an orange!
  • Melt a coin through an audience member's hand!
  • Make two paper clips fly through the air like trapeze artists and end up magically linked!
  • Turn into a magical ninja, harnessing a secret force to chop a carrot in two with only a banknote!
  • Tear a length of thread into pieces, and then miraculously restore them into one long piece again!
  • Amaze your volunteer by knowing exactly which word they're thinking of!
  • And so much more!
Attention aspiring Houdinis of all ages: prepare to transform from you into super magic you.
