“Bannon at his best!” -Paul Harris
John Bannon’s is back with this, his latest collection, Very Hush-Hush, forty card tricks with a “mental” slant that require little to no sleight-of-hand.
In five large chapters, John explores impossible location effects (including some that can be performed over Zoom), prediction tricks with and without multiple revelation procedures, and performance pieces with a mental magic/mindreading theme, among other cunning card effects in the miracle class.
And you’ve never seen a magic square quite like this. The first chapter of Very Hush-Hush, “Parts of the Sum,” deals directly with Bannon’s brilliant pasteboard-driven takes (yes, more than one) on this classic mental mind-bender, and allied effects. One method allows you to “predict“ a magic square, while another uses no numbers at all. You read that right.
Along the way, you’ll learn a host of helpful sleights and subtleties, including false cuts and shuffles, switches, and other moves. And while there is no real finger-flinging required, yes, you still have to practice.
Everything is conveyed in Bannon’s familiar third person tongue-in-cheek tone (patter and one-liners included), with a casual storytelling-like feel that makes reading the book seem more like a conversation than a bout with an instructional textbook.
This book has style.
Tell your friends it’s TLDR; then keep it all on the QT. This is one tome you won’t want anyone else getting their hands on.
A 260+ page 7 x 10″ quality hardcover, bound in cloth with pictorial dust jacket. Illustrated with black-and-white photographs.
John Bannon has been screwing around with playing cards for over forty years. He is a worldwide best-selling author of books on close-up magic, including Impossibilia, Smoke and Mirrors, Dear Mister Fantasy, High Caliber, Destination Zero, and Mentalissimo.
