Derek Dingle (1937–2004) was an English close-up magician whose card and coin skills were practically unsurpassed. In 1981, magic author Richard Kaufman was finally able to pin him down, and get him to share his techniques.The result was this book.
This book contains over 120 effects with cards, coins, and cigarettes. It's really two books in one. The book contains 60 or so of Derek's classic routines which have already appeared in print, and which he has substantially improved (the originals are unavailable in out-of-print magazines). It also contains about 60 never before released sleights, effects, and routines.Every nuance of technique, every line of patter, every ingredient that makes Derek's magic so special is captured by Richard Kaufman, one of magic's most innovative writers and illustrators. With over 11,000 words of text and 800 illustrations, the very essence of Dingle's magic is clearly taught as never before.
