By Forces Unseen by Stephen Minch
Rarely does card magic come along as strikingly original as that found in this book. When it first appeared in 1993, Ernest Earick’s name was little known, and some questioned if the ground-breaking sleight-of-hand described could be done deceptively. The answer, of course, was YES, and By Forces Unseen became an underground classic. Out of print for years, copies have been snapped up, fetching prices of hundreds of dollars.
Among the effects taught in this truly remarkable volume you will find chosen cards that fly from the deck when you clap your hands, cards that materialize at your fingertips when someone concentrates on them, selections that pop from the middle of the pack with a flick of your wrist…and 17 other extraordinary events.
Behind the shimmering veil of magic you will discover a rich body of innovative sleight-of-hand that includes motionless one-handed bottom palms, slow-motion fingertip card steals, indetectable palm-to-palm transfers, refined riffle-shuffle work and more.
Seldom does one find a work of such determined invention and artistry. If you delight in baffling card magic and exquisite sleight-of-hand-in magic that puts you a running cut ahead of your competition-you’ll want By Forces Unseen.
