Card manipulation is the branch of magical illusion that deals with creating effects using sleight of hand techniques involving playing cards. Card manipulation is often used in magical performances, especially in close-up, parlour, and street magic. Some of the most recognized names in this field include Dai Vernon, Ed Marlo, S.W. Erdnase and Alex Elmsley. Before becoming world famous for his escapes, Houdini billed himself as "The King of Cards"

Cards & Card Magic

Micromagic or close-up magic or table magic is magic performed in an intimate setting usually no more than ten feet (three metres) from one's audience and is usually performed while sitting at a table. The vast majority of magicians around the world are micromagicians. Micromagic can combine sleight-of hand manipulations with flourishes. Sleight-of-hand, also known as prestidigitation ("quick fingers") or léger de main (Fr., "lightness of hand"), is the set of techniques used by a micromagician to manipulate objects such as cards and coins secretly

Close Up, and General Magic

Magic (sometimes referred to as stage magic to distinguish it from paranormal or ritual magic) is a performing art that entertains audiences by staging tricks or creating illusions of seemingly impossible[1] or supernatural[2] feats using natural means. These feats are called magic tricks, effects or illusions. A professional who performs such illusions is called a stage magician or an illusionist. Some performers may also be referred to by names reflecting the type of magical effects they present, such as prestidigitators, conjurors, hypnotists, mentalists, or escapologists.

Accessories, Fire, Money Magic

Coin magic is the manipulating of coins to entertain audiences. Because coins are small, most coin tricks are considered as close-up magic or table magic, as the audience must be close to the performer to see the effects. Though stage conjurers generally do not use coin effects, coin magic is sometimes performed onstage using large coins. In a different type of performance setting, a close-up coin magician (or 'coin worker') will use a large video projector so the audience can see the magic on a big screen. Coin magic is generally considered harder to master than other close-up techniques such as card magic, and is one of the least performed forms of conjuring. Coin magic requires great skill and grace to perform convincingly, and this takes a lot of practice to acquire. Sleight-of-hand, also known as prestidigitation ("quick fingers") or léger de main (Fr., "lightness of hand"), is the set of techniques used by a micromagician to manipulate objects such as cards and coins secretly
