Martin's Miracles has been one of our most
consistent sellers for over twenty-five years
and the reason for that is simple: Cardiographic.
On Page 67, Martin Lewis describes his now
classic effect wherein a deck of cards is
drawn on a large sketchpad and a drawing
of a selected card rises up out of this cartoon.
The drawing is torn out of the pad and handed
to the spectator. During the past quarter
century this trick has been presented by
hundreds of top-flight magicians around the
Martin started out as the resident magician
at San Francisco's famous Magic Cellar and
then graduated to revue shows in Las Vegas
and Reno and finally cruise ships. The many
close-up, platform and stage effects that
were honed to perfection in these demanding
venues have been collected together in Martin's
Miracles. Succeeding in all of these areas
requires an extraordinary amount of commercial
material. His jumbo monte routine (Sidewalk
Shuffle, Page 95) is another modern classic.
Written and illustrated by Martin's Masters-Fellowship-winning
father Eric Lewis and with a curious introduction
by Harry Anderson.
