New Publication Release

13 Apr

A Cut Above

Magicana is delighted to announce the release of our latest publication, A Cut Above.

A Cut Above is a joyful exploration of one-handed cuts created or documented by Msgr. Vincent Foy, a pioneer of the modern movement of card flourishes. His contributions on this subject that appeared initially in The Linking Ring and in Bertram on Sleight of Hand, inspired a new generation of finger-flingers.

Msgr. Foy, who is 95-years young, revisits his notes to give us 100 one-handed glorious cuts, most of his own invention. A Cut Above comes complete with an insightful introduction that examines the history and place for card cuts and flourishes in the modern repertoire and an annotated bibliographyof other books and DVDs that the reader may want to explore.

This black and white, 240 page hardbound (colour dustjacket) volume is approximately 8.75″ x 11.75″ (22cm x 30cm) and contains 500 photo images. It is available for sale from Magicana and your favourite magic dealer for $45 USD (plus shipping and handling and GST/HST for Canadian residents).

Read the introduction, or see sample pages of a “Wobble Cut”  (as designed by Michael Albright) or, just learn more about this wonderful book by visiting : www.magicana.com/acutabove.
