Card College Volumes 1 through 5. These weigh in at a solid 9 lbs! This collection is a must for the serious card magician. It has hundreds of moves, tricks and routines to be performed with a deck of cards. It is aptly titled: this is a college education in the art of card magic.

The first volume in this landmark course sets the groundwork for the rest of the series, beginning with lessons on the proper ways to hold, deal and shuffle the cards, then progressing through many basic sleights and techniques, including perhaps the most thorough and revealing discussion of the classic force ever offered. Along with the classics of card magic, Mr. Giobbi includes original ideas and refinements from his own repertoire, guaranteeing every reader, no matter how experienced, fresh techniques and insights into the performance of professional caliber card magic!

Picking up where Volume One left off, Volume Two teaches such classic and invaluable sleights as the palm, the pass, the glimpse, false counts and much more. Volume Two concludes with a chapter on psychology, misdirection and presentation that's among the best treatments ever done on these important subjects. Throughout, Mr. Giobbi includes original ideas and refinements, guaranteeing every reader, no matter how experienced, fresh techniques and insights.

Volume Three contains instruction on such invaluable sleights as the push-off double turnover, one-handed top palm, the Ascanio spread, gambler's cop, the Vernon addition, false displays and riffle shuffles, the convincing control, the Olram subtlety, and much more-including many powerful card tricks and routines. Mr. Giobbi includes original ideas and refinements, guaranteeing every reader fresh techniques and insights.

Volume Four teaches such invaluable sleights as the invisible pass, the turnover and spread passes, the Christ twist, second and bottom deals, the Jinx change, the Green angle separation, the cut force, the dribble force, and much more-including many tricks and routines by Mr. Giobbi himself.

In the fifth volume of the acclaimed Card College series, Roberto Giobbi has prepared a graduation party! In previous volumes the reader has been given a remarkable collection of tools for creating astonishing card magic. In the same vein, Volume 5 begins with a meaty chapter of new techniques and strategies, which include methods for covertly arranging stacks during performance, obtaining a duplicate of a spectator's signature with his knowledge, and secretly conveying cards to and from the deck-powerful tools indeed.
But then Volume 5 diverges from the established Card College formula. Judging that the reader now has more than a sufficient number of tools in his grasp, Mr. Giobbi provides eight chapters filled with tricks and routines that illustrate how various techniques are applied to create world-class card magic. These effects, however, are not mere constructions meant for teaching. Most have been drawn from Roberto Giobbi's professional repertoire-and because of this, even the classics of card magic are given a fresh gleam as Giobbi adds refinements won from years of performing experience.
His choice of material is impeccable, featuring not only original effects and handlings of his own, but tricks and routines by world-masters as well. One finds such gems as Fred Kaps' presentation for The Signed Card in Box, along with Giobbi's cunning treatment of this modern classic, Henry Christ's fabulous Ace routine and a superb handling of a forgotten masterpiece by Charlie Miller. And everything is taught with the clarity and attention to detail for which the Card College series has become known. Open this book and welcome to the party-prepare to graduate!
