A New Angle

A New Angle

A New Angle is filled with magician foolers, hard-hitting practical effects for laymen, and off the wall new ideas to springboard your own ideas. Many of the effects are all three. That's because Ryan and Michael have dusted off a secret weapon that you probably already have buried in the back of your magic drawer: the Stripper Deck (or the Tapered Deck). 

By combining some subtleties, sleight of hand, and new ideas with this nearly forgotten tool that every magician already has, Ryan and Michael will show you how to unlock mind blowing effects you never thought possible.  This book contains more than twenty routines and concepts, with additional contributions by Harapan Ong, Edward Boswell, Nathan Colwell, Frank Fogg, and Brian O’Neill.
