Cardboard Capers - My Review

I remember I got this book a few years ago and I really like some of the interesting ideas from Euan.

The materials are not difficult to do and this book also includes "Utility Sleights" which I find interesting. This booklet is comb-bound and the size is a small thin booklet.

Effects such as "Return to Sender", "Twisted Assembly", "Thanks to Walton" and a few others, are very nice effects and you may combine the mentioned above effects into a solid routine. I think the materials would play very well to laymen too.

If you have the opportunity, hope you are able to secure a copy of this book which I highly recommended.
