Marcom Presents Magic by Ralph A. Marcom - Book
Ralph A. Marcom (1934-2010) was a constant award winner for originality and was famed for his ability to write entertaining acts. In this book, he fully teaches many of his creations.
Lines from Logan opens the book, a foreword by Logan Pritchett. Our author is a consistent award winner for originality, and his first chapter covers just such a routine, The Monster, which won a trophy. Eropetion is another award winning routine with several ropes. My Grandfather, the Pirate is a three effect routine, involving cards, balls and a coin assembly, complete with humorous patter and many illustrations. The Alchemist's Corner is an act that involves matches, several sizes of dice, an 8 ball, a shot glass, a half dollar, etc. etc. and lots of fun. Vampira, Revamped is a new version of the famous Gloria Marcom act. Van Cleve's Bean Trick is carefully explained and another winner. Frank Caple's Three Ring Rhapsody will appeal to every one who owns three rings and others will go out and get some. A Brass Bowl and Four Sponges are used for Marcom's version of this always popular type of close up magic. Then another chapter on a new version of the Chop Cup. Trophies were won with The Rusty Key, complete with a scenario only Marcom could develop, and The Sorcerer's Hat.
