Meir Yedid was the first person to win the Society Of American Magician’s Close-Up Magic Championship more than once. He was also awarded the Society’s rarely presented Originality Medal. Meir has spent the last 30 years touring throughout the world performing and teaching his brand of creative magic. This book features Meir's offbeat magic where he uses ordinary playing cards in extraordinary ways. All of these routines are visual, quirky and very memorable.
Demolition: A card is rolled into a tube and torn into little pieces. The pieces instantly and visually restore into the signed selection. The Card Camera: A camera is built out of playing cards and then used to photograph the spectator's selection.
Blow Gun: A signed selection is formed into a blowgun and is shot out of itself.
Test Tube Alchemy: This has to be seen to be believed. A card signed by two spectators is sealed in a test tube. It magically transports itself, with one of the signatures, while being held by a spectator. Biting Sensations: The now classic routine invented by Meir where using sleight of mouth you bite a chunk out of the deck leaving the selection intact. Also taught are all of the techniques used within the routines. 51 illustrations 66 Pgs. 2010
