, a collection of magic that assembles separate, serious studies on three of the greatest card magicians of all time: Alex Elmsley, Frank Garcia, and Dai Vernon.
In each case, Mr. Giobbi provides background information on the person, and frames the influence of the tricks in a modern perspective. Then you'll see a performance of three pieces by Elmsley, Garcia, and Vernon, followed by step-by-step instruction on each piece.
Giobbi has selected three of his favorite tricks from each of his "favorites." Some are well-known, while others will likely be new to you. You will learn:
- From Vernon - Emotional Reaction, Four of a Kind, and Slow Motion Aces
- From Elmsley - All Backs, Double Swap, and 1002nd Aces
- From Garcia - A Lady Up My Sleeve, Ace Faroleros, and A Surprise Package
