Card Magic

The man who invented “cardician,” Ed Marlo, became obsessed with card magic because as a boy cards were the only magical prop he could afford. It’s still true. A deck of cards can be found in every house, it’s easy to carry, and there are thousands of tricks to suit everyone’s taste. Plus, we have over a century of card masters to learn from: Elmsley, Erdnase, Fulves, Hugard, Lorayne, Marlo, Racherbaumer, Vernon and many, many others.
