Cardrology - New E-Book

This collection contains four card effects that are my favourites which all can be done impromptu.

I have been performing these effects in my entire career as a cardician. Each of the items has been my personal favourites and most of the effects are perform for stand-up or walkaround situation.

There is only one effect that requires you to use different odd-backed cards from other deck. In addition, there is no pre set-up of the deck, gimmick or special cards and the like.

Table of Contents:

- Cullectors -
This is one of my cleanest versions of "The Collectors" plot. Four Jacks are placed aside and three freely selections are lost in the deck. The Jacks are placed on top of the deck and they collect three selections instantly.

- HaLo Keepers -
An instant two-card sandwich routine that uses Harry Lorayne's "HaLo Cut" that is easy to do.

- Speedy Collectors - 
I consider this effect as the fastest or instant version of Roy Walton’s “The Collectors” which essentially inspired by Edward Marlo with the use of three mates to collect 2 selections. The spectator would be surprised to see the odd-backed court cards instantly come together to collect their signed selections.

- Overly Jackbitious -
This effect is inspired by the “Ambitious Card” routine. All over the years, I have seen many excellent versions available. Finally, I came up with my own handling to suit my preference in this effect. You must be proficient in the culling technique in order to perform this effect smoothly.

Here's what a few of them say:

"An excellent booklet. Cullectors (good title!) is a great combination of methods. The Faro and the block-pushoff (thank you for the credit!) work well together to create a very cleam method. Halo Keepers is one of my favourites here - I like the stepped display of the Jacks in seemingly different positions. Speedy Collectors is a really nice use of the Cull to create a Collectors effect. Overly Jackbitious has a great finish to the Ambitious Card theme."

"Cardrology has some really nice sandwich/collectors stuff in it. It is a little more advanced, though. Not beginners stuff. But some very clean looking magic."
