  1. This CD will help you create Entertainment with Magic by Dean Paczewitz

    You won’t be using expensive stage props, you will use everyday, easily available objects, just the way the professionals do. The cards you need cost a few dollars, and Dean guesses you will be able to get the half dollars for around 50 cents apiece. You are going to avoid expense by learning sleight-of-hand. No, don’t put the book down yet. If you are imagining intricate, painful, finger exercises you are thinking about someone else’s book. These moves will be fun, and easy to remember. As you learn some basic, mostly easy, sleights, Dean points out some of the principles that make them deceptive. You can begin to create your own tricks using these principles. The idea is that a beginning magician does not’t have to be a poor performer, or stumble around trying to figure out which tricks are worth showing.

    The CD is produced in PDF format on CD. 8.5x 11, 37 pages
