For centuries, rope tricks have been staples of the magician's repertoire. Surprisingly, many of the best ones are "self-working," meaning they do not require dexterity or hours of practice. This excellent guidebook, written by one of the today's foremost authorities on magic, presents 70 of the best, most amazing self-working rope tricks that amateur magicians can master in a very short time.
After a brief introduction and a section devoted to acquiring and preparing the proper ropes, Karl FUlves begins the book by introducing rope tricks based on simple overhand knots, slip knots and square knots. These are followed by such tricks as the "Vishnu Rope Mystery" and the "Hindu Turban Mystery" in the chapter entitled "Cut-and-Restored Rope." In "Ropes That THink" he demonstrates such fascinating maneuvers as "Liar's Ropes" and "Seance." You'll also learn how to do a one-hand figure eight, perform a "Double-ring ceremony" and make an endless chain.
Novice magicians, as well as veterans, can learn these foolproof tricks quickly and easily with Karl Fulves' clearly worded instructions and over 400 step-by-step illustrations. Along with the specifics of how to perform each trick, Mr. Fulves provides helpful phrases and bits of patter to help readers present each routine with a professional flourish.
