Palming Volume One – Bottom Palm and Gambler’s Cop

The Palming series is my attempt to rectify that problem as applied to a specific goal: secretly removing cards from the deck. The material is designed to progress logically, explaining both the how and the why of each sleight. This allows the student to learn with surety and confidence.

Palming Volume One – Bottom Palm and Gambler’s Cop has now been released in a format matching our other ebooks. The ebook covers palms by Erdnase, Marlo, Hofzinser, and Close. We provide you with both an EPUB file (for easy reading on a tablet) and a PDF file (for desktops and great for printing). The combination of text, photos, and videos provides a level of instruction second only to private lessons.

The literature of magic is full of texts that explain how to do sleights with cards, coins, and other objects. But very few books explain how to learn to do these sleights, emphasizing the mechanical functions of the fingers; fewer still present these sleights in a manner that leads the student from basic to more difficult maneuvers.

This volume includes updated information and videos, and now matches the format of our newer ebooks. You will receive both a PDF file (perfect for desktops, laptops, and printing) and an EPUB file (perfect for iOS and Android tablets).

Only $19.95

Excellent teaching guide for palming techniques

I am very glad to have purchased this ebook. The instructions are very clear and I love the link to a video on youtube for every move that is taught in the book as you can visualize how it looks, as well as other details as timing and speed. Micheal is a very good teacher and, as I have been a former piano student who spent hours of study to become a teacher myself, I appreciate this step by step approach and the "homework" style provided throughout the book. I have already bought the second volume! thanks.

Smooth Sailing

As always, purchasing from you was as easy as it could be. Thanks! PS The purchase of "Palming - Volume 1" was a direct consequence of your palming webinar, which inspired me to finally add palming to my skill set. I am typing this with a card palmed in each hand - not the easiest exercise but certainly an educational one.

Just what I needed.

I've always been nervous about palming cards, but this first volume has gotten me excited to add palming into my skill set. Michael Close is an excellent teacher, he goes at a good pace and has a great writing style that makes you feel like he's talking directly to you. The inclusion of short videos really helps one to learn what the overall move should look like, with the text and pictures to get the exact technical parts. The combination of the three have helped me learn much quicker than one method alone. With a few months of practice, I'm looking forward to continuing the journey with chapter two. Thank you Michael for putting this teaching tool out for us to learn.
