Subtle Card Creations of Nick Trost Vol. 8 - Book
Nick Trost's Subtle Card Creations series of easy-to-do card effects continues with Volume 8. As in the other volumes in the series these routines rely on subtle moves and principles rather than difficult sleight of hand. Once again there are over 100 tricks, this time collected in 13 chapters covering Gambling Tricks, Poker Puzzles, Divinations, Gilbreath Tricks, Predictions, Coincidences, ESP tricks and more.
"I think this is the best volume yet."
- Steve Beam
"I've never been a fan of show-off 'over-technical' long-winded card magic designed to fool only the boys. (Notice that I use the word fool and not entertain. Think on that!) It's often laden with esoteric, angley and non practical sleights. Nick Trost's work, in contrast, is not easy for 'ease' sake; but its all (yes, all) practical and well-constructed to entertain laymen. Mr. Trost doesn't shun sleights either, but-thank goodness-he doesn't overuse them. He's kept his eye on the ball that magic is to entertain (and mystify) laymen with. If, along the way, it happens to fool other magicians-fine. But, that (I guess) is just a mere bonus."
- Paul Gordon
"The name Nick Trost has always been synonymous with good, simple and commercial magic. (He) is one of my heroes in card magic... Nick's fertile imagination has created some of the most truly memorable effects during the past few decades..."
- Aldo Colombini
"The student of magic will find a great deal of valuable information in this book... Mr. Trost knows how to construct entertaining card magic..."
