From the publisher: By Hugard & Braue. Here is a book of card magic and technique that is unparalleled in its thoroughness of the subject. Although the book is full of many beautiful and mystifying card effects, the authors stress the importance of technique and performance. The many sleights are explained in detail as they pertain to the various effects. Other portions of the book deal with presentation, misdirection and routine selections.
