The memorized deck has evolved into one of our most powerful principles and Mnemonica, by Juan Tamariz is recognized by many as the most important book on the subject. Shortly after its publication, Juan began a personal project to document some of his favorite effects on video. Using his own cameras he recorded live shows and spent hours revealing the methods, principles and ideas that he uses to turn ingenious card tricks into unforgettable miracles.
These homemade videos are more than just a record of Juan’s thinking on the memorized deck – they are a priceless record of his personal approach to this incredibly powerful principle in magic.
Juan explains over twenty routines complete with essential tips and valuable advice. Juan also includes a volume filled with essential tools for the mem-deck performer.
This represents a treasure trove of secret information. If you have ever wanted to master this principle, it’s easily worth its weight in gold.
Details: 5 DVDs. Hours of instruction. Over 20 routines. In English.

Alex Pandrea has surged to the cutting edge of sleight of hand magic, and we’re pleased to welcome him to our At the Table series.
In a unique format, we’ll explore the three facets of Alex’s career.
He began performing close-up at restaurants, where his material had to be quick, visual, and perfect for small groups. That evolved as Alex became immersed in the New York magic scene, where he expressed his sleight of hand and “move monkey” zen.
Finally, Alex’s venue has shifted again to more formal performance, for use in more stand-up settings.
We’ll explore EACH of these aspects of Alex’s magic, in three sections of an exciting and jam-packed At the Table live event.

“How much audiences love this trick will SHOCK YOU.”
I’m going to say something that will surprise you: When you make a rose out of a napkin, you don’t even NEED to do magic. It’s THAT much of a crowd pleaser. And before I actually did it, I didn’t believe it. I COULDN’T believe it.
So when you DO A TRICK with that rose, it’s like pouring FUEL ON A FIRE.
Chris Randall is world-famous for his napkin magic, and he’s finally teaching his reputation making routines. You’ll never look at a napkin the same way again.
“Magic is about connecting with people. And Chris Randall does it with nothing but NAPKINS.” -Maxwell Murphy
As a single magician working in Vegas, Chris spent years developing a bullet-proof set of tricks to have fun, amaze.. and even get a date!
CHRIS TEACHES YOU
1. How he rips and VISUALLY RESTORES a napkin-rose.
2. How he makes the perfect napkin rose (worth the price alone)
3. Special bonus for the single crowd: Chris teaches his now-famous “7 Digits” finale. A super visual trick that ends with a funny and clever phone-number swap.
PLUS: If you have flash-paper, you’ll be able to do Chris’s hyper-visual fire-ball restoration.
PROFESSIONALS: Using nothing but napkins, Chris has a blast everywhere he goes. Refined over thousands of performances, what you’re getting here is a rock-solid stunner.

Plant a seemingly random word in your spectators minds… Then reveal exactly how you did it! This is INFAMOUS!
Infamous is a book test like no other.
Where other book tests end, you’re only just getting started!
Infamous is a routine with a kicker climax that brings things full circle.
What is the difference between the Standard and Deluxe packages?
Both packages contain the DVD and special cards that allow you to perform the core routine as seen in the trailer. With the Standard package you will need to supply your own book (almost any book will work), and you will need to create your own gimmick (instruction is included on the DVD to guide you through this). The Deluxe package contains a book and a gimmick. After assembly you will be ready to go in about 5 minutes. The book contained in the Deluxe package has been specially prepared to allow you to perform a number of bonus effects that will not be possible without it.
I am terrible at arts and crafts. Will I have trouble assembling the gimmicks?
I doubt it! It is extremely simple and uses standard items you are likely to have lying around the house.
How examinable is the Deluxe package’s book?
The book is extremely examinable. It contains over 300 pages of text from the real book and it has been specially modified so that you could read it cover to cover and not discover the secret. It contains a well-known principle in a new way to tie in with the Infamous premise.
Will there be an option so that purchasers of the Standard package can later upgrade to the Deluxe package?
While there is no immediate option for this, something might be made available in the future. However, the best deal will be to buy the Deluxe package at the outset.
Is this suitable for walk-around?
This was developed with the walk-around performer in mind. The book contained in the Deluxe package is the ideal size to be carried in a jacket pocket. While the effect will play out the same each time, the word selected by the participant can be varied each time.
