Introduction

Just A Word ....

It is with genuine pleasure that we present this second volume of feature card effects from Ted Annemann’s files. With its companion volume, “Annemann’s Full Deck of 52 Impromptu Card Tricks,” it makes available for ready reference a wealth of headline material to be cherished by every magician. Each and every trick was selected personally by Ted Annemann for its striking effect, its stunning climax, or for some other unique feature that spelled ENTERTAINMENT. For this reason, and this alone, you will find in the one hundred and ten tricks in these two books a collection of card magic that is unsurpassed in entertainment value. Truly, this is magic as your audience like it!

The present volume is not restricted to impromptu tricks alone, although one-third are in that category, but it brings to you many of the more brilliant feats whose successful pres­entation depend upon the magician’s unsuspected allies . . . shorts, double faced, stranger, duplicates and otherwise easily made and ingeniously faked cards. These, interwoven with Annemann subtleties and misdirection, provide the means for creating miracles otherwise unobtainable. Regardless of whether you are seeking card tricks for close-up or stage presentation, you’ll find a full array here. And included for good measure are two complete routines, conceived and used by Ted Annemann, which alone are worth many times the price of this entire volume.
